Congratulations to those that made 2016’s Run of 18 a success.
Please see below for the opening fixtures and the rules for 2017’s contest. Pay particular attention to the last three bullet points so you can maximise scoring!
If you haven’t been involved before please ask Luke at training how it works, or read the rules below.
The competition is open to all Clevedon AC members who had paid their annual membership fee by 1st January 2017.
Participants must complete 18 or more of the races listed in order to qualify for the competition (hence the name).
Prizes will be awarded in December 2017 to the first, second and third placed male athletes and the first, second and third placed female athletes. There are no age group prizes.
At the end of the competition the winners will be those that have accumulated the most points. Points will be awarded to each participant that completes a listed race based on the following criteria:
- 1st placed Clevedon AC athlete = 25 points
- 2nd placed Clevedon AC athlete = 24 points
- 3rd placed Clevedon AC athlete = 23 points
- 4th placed Clevedon AC athlete = 22 points
- 5th placed Clevedon AC athlete = 21 points
- 6th placed Clevedon AC athlete = 20 points
- ...down to a minimum of 1 point for the 25th placed Clevedon AC athlete.
If there are more than 25 Clevedon finishers in either the Men's or Ladies' races then each member finishing in 26th place or lower will be awarded zero points.
For the purposes of the competition Men's and Ladies' race results will be treated separately.
No points will be awarded where an athlete does not complete a race or does not feature in the organiser's official results.
Competitors will have sole responsibility for organising their own entries to races. XC race entries will continue to be coordinated on the day of the race by Team Captains/Managers.
The Run of 18 Coordinator is Luke Murray. All queries relating to the competition should be sent via email.
Run of 18 updates will be released monthly by email and will also be made available on the club website.
The dates of some of the races have not yet been confirmed and there is likely to be a need to make changes due to date conflicts. Any changes required to the race schedule will be discussed and agreed by the Clevedon A.C. Committee. Members will be notified of changes as soon as possible.
For the Parkrun dates you may race anywhere in the UK. You will be given points based on your finishing time relating to any other members racing on that day.
- Bonus Points – 10 bonus points and 1 race count will be awarded to anyone competing a marathon (or further) at any point between January 1st and December 1st. You must notify the race coordinator within 30 days of race date.
- Bonus Points - 10 bonus points and 1 race count will be awarded to anyone competing in a race outside of Great Britain between January 1st and December 1st. You must notify the race coordinator within 30 days of race date. A photo in your club vest please!
The ‘Joker’ is back this year. Playing the joker anytime before your chosen race doubles your points. You may only play the joker once in 2017 and you must let the race co-ordinator know before the gun goes.
Standings as of the end of October 2017.
