Harriers Challenge 2018

Update

The October Park run in the challenge  has been moved to the 10th November park run.

Please remember that park run begins at 9am and all must be registered with park run (BEFORE the event) to get a time.

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 heard of.

Here is this year’s Challenge and there are 24 races to choose from.

Ten Road Races, Ten Off-Road Races and Four Cross Countries.

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 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!)

NEW for 2018 – Double point JOKER

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

You are completely free to select from any of 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 one week before the actual event (Ian Hodkinson, Club coach on 07703687906 or hodkinsonig@btinternet.com).

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

NEW for 2018 – Charity donation Entry Fee

This year we will charge a £5 fee 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.
