Harriers Challenge 2015
The challenge is open to all members of Stafford Harriers.
Here is this years Challenge and there are 24 races to choose from. Ten Road Races, Ten Off Road Races and Four Cross Countries. The dates have been taken from last years evets. Check actual dates
nearer the times as race organisers have been known to change dates.
If you find out confirmed dates that are different then please let us know.
Scoring is as follows, the first runner gets the same number of points that there are runners in the group at the start of the Challenge. (eg Group One 11
pts.) Second place gets one less (10 pts) and so on. Two races during the season will be deemed Bonus Races and will receive double points.
The winners will be the runners with the best 12 scores.
When a runner gets past 12 races a * will appear against the score deleted.
In the event of a tie, then the runner with the least number of races wins. If still tied then a countback on head to head results will be done. (If
it's still a tie we give up!)
In fairness to all runners we ask that you wear club colours in all challenge races so your fellow group members can spot you. Failure to do so may mean
that you don't get points in the race.
Could we please ask all in the challenge to give the organisers a chance. If you run in someone elses number or give your number to someone else please
let us know.
As stated before the Harriers Crystal Ball is broken and we are having difficulty replacing it.
Here is the list of races for this coming years Challenge. Some dates still to be confirmed it is possible that there could
be amendments to the list. At the Christmas Disco two races were drawn out of the hat that will count double points this year.
Those races were the Spring Treble @ Barlaston and South Cheshire 20
