Winter Championships

How it works

Please note since the 2018/19 winter season we have a new club championship award to recognise the achievements of members running for the club – the Club Vest Championships.

These details below are for reference to the old Winter Championships.

The Winter Championships are based on a club members best ‘age-adjusted’ results in any three disciplines from swim, run, bike time trial and duathlon.  There are several qualifying events in each discipline listed below.  Some have entry fees others are free.  Borders League races are free but require English Athletics membership.

After each event the finishing times are ‘age-adjusted’ using a formula. This is similar to the WAVA system used by Parkrun.

The formula to calculate your time is (Actual Time x Sqrt ( (98 – age) x (98 + age) ) )/ 95.

The results format has changed this year to bring it into line with most other racing events.  The better finishing position the lower the number – 1st, 2nd, 3rd and so on.

Competitors are expected to race in at least 5 of the 13 events.  Anyone competing in only three events will incur 4 penalty points and those competing in only four events 2 penalty points.  This is to encourage and reward participation.

In the event of a tie the winner will be the person who has participated in most events or, if that is the same, most first place finishes.

In addition to the overall male and female Winter Club Champions there will be Age Category winners – Seniors, Vets (40-49) and Super Vets (50+).  The winners will be presented with the awards at the End of Season Awards Party.

A competitors age is of 31/12/2017.

Wearing club kit is encouraged but not mandatory, except in Cross Country and Borders League events.  Wearing a sponsors kit or kit which raises a potential conflict of interests e.g. the kit of another club, will invalidate your result.  If in doubt check with me first.

Results will be regularly updated and can be downloaded as an excel spreadsheet here.
