London Frontrunners Club Championship
What is the Club Championship?
The Club Championship is an annual competition open to all members of London Frontrunners (Club members). Club members earn points by participating in races over the Club year with prizes awarded to the top three placers in various categories as well as to the overall male and female Club Champions.
Who is eligible to enter?
All Club members are eligible to take part in the Club Championship, however only first claim Club members are eligible for the prizes.
How does it work?
Club members earn points over the course of the Club year through participating in “core” and “non-core” races.
The “core” races are the ten designated races listed below and cover a broad of races across the Club year with various distances, locations and terrains. Participants at the “core races” earn both participation points and position points.
“Non-core” races are any races which are timed by UK Athletics and of the following lengths: 5k, 10kn, half marathon and marathon. For each of the four distances, all Club members’ results in “non-core” races of that distance will be consolidated into a single results table. Participants at the “non-core” only earn both position points.
There are a total of fourteen opportunities to earn points (ten “core” races and four “non-core” race distances) and each Club member’s top eight scores will be added together to reach their total score.
1st, 2nd and 3rd prizes are awarded at the Club’s AGM to the three Club members who receive the highest total scores in the following categories:
Veteran Male (over 40 years of age)
Veteran Female (over 40 years of age)
