Harriers Challenge 2020

25th May 2020

Major race changes due to Coronavirus (COVID-19)

As so many races have been cancelled we have created a  series of races, well, virtual ones for you to run over the course of a week for 9 weeks.  Starting at a one-mile sprint through to a half marathon.  The Grand Prix also includes the virtual NSRAA race, St Thomas 10k.

All you have to do is complete each event in between the dates shown and either upload your Strava or Garmin details to a weekly pinned post on the Harriers Facebook page or send your details directly into the website via email (or Contact Us)

We will record the results and update the challenge tables and award your points. Jokers can be played (see rules below).

Senior Grand Prix – All virtual races
1 Mile 2 Mile 5 Km St Thomas 10k 5 Mile 5k TT 10 Km 10 Mile 1/2
31/05 – 06/06 07/06 – 13/06 14/06-20/06 14/06 21/06 – 27/06 28/06 – 04/07 05/07 – 11/07 12/07 – 18/07 19/07 – 24/07

 

We can’t say when races will restart and so it is likely to be additional changes as we move forward.

21/12/19 Race revised. Newcastle 10K clashed with another race and so replaced with Stone St. Michaels in June 2020

Rugeley 10 mile race date changed to 26/07/2020
Lilleshall Monumental 10k race date changed to 19/04/2020

The Harriers challenge is open to all members of Stafford Harriers, it’s a bit of fun and adds a little interest to your race diary & maybe introduces you to some races that you may not normally try or of even heard of.

Here is this year’s Challenge and there are 24 races to choose from. Twelve Road Races, Twelve Off-Road Races. Please check actual dates nearer the times as race organisers have been known to change dates. If you find out confirmed dates that are different to the below, 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 If there are 12 runners then 12 pts.) Second place gets one less (11 pts) and so on. 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 then we give up!)

In fairness to all runners, we ask that you wear club colours in all challenge races (without exception) so your group members can spot you. Failure to do so will mean that you don’t get any points in that particular race.

Double point JOKER;

Each competitor can select “One” race to play their JOKER and receive double points.

You are free to select one race from the 24 races at any time during the year. The only rule is that you must notify the JOKER referee in writing (either by email or text) at least 1 week before the actual event (Ian Hodkinson, on 07703687906 or hodkinsonig@btinternet.com).

Any disputes will be addressed by the challenge committee and their decision will be final.

Charity donation Entry Fee;

There is a charge of £5 to enter, all entries will go direct to the clubs’ charity fund. This is still a bit of fun with a chance of a trophy at the end of the year. In 2018 we donated £250 to Stafford’s House of Bread at Christmas time & in 2019 we donated to Eadie’s Wishes (Stella’s daughter’s charity).
