Contests

Club Championship

2018 saw the successful introduction of two new competitions: Wear The Shirt and Personal Bests. These, alongside the 50+ fixtures offered in the Run of 18, meant we could have raced ourselves silly.  In 2019 we decided to scale back the list of fixtures in the Run of 18 competition, change the format slightly to a Club Championship, and offer realistic target races for all members.  This format was successful and will be repeated in 2020.

Rules for 2020

The competition is open to all Clevedon AC members who had paid their annual membership fee by 1st January 2020.

Participants must complete 8 or more of the races listed in order to qualify for the competition.

Prizes will be awarded in December 2020 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

...and so on down to 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 Club Championship Coordinator is Luke Murray. All queries relating to the competition should be sent to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

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 date 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: 15 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 (no more than once in the year).  You must notify the race coordinator within 30 days of completing the race.

Bonus Points: 15 bonus points and 1 race count will be awarded to anyone competing a half marathon, other than the race listed, at any point between January 1st and December 1st (no more than once in the year). You must notify the race coordinator within 30 days of completing the race.
