29th March 2022

Corrected the date for the Clayton 10K

24th March 2022

We have been informed that the Newcastle 10K (10th April) has been cancelled. We will publish its replacement shortly.

24th February 2022

Wincle Trout and Mow Cop date have been confirmed. Reports suggest Wincle Trout is already full and a reserve list is in operation.

3rd February 2022

Group tables published, races put in date order

 

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 28 races to choose from. Twelve Road Races, Twelve Off-Road Races, Plus 3 x Cross Country & 1 x Club Time Trial.

Please check actual dates nearer the times as race organisers have been known to change dates from the provisional advertised.

If you find out confirmed dates that are different to the below, then please let us know.

Scoring

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 28 races (*except the full marathon) 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.

No Entry Fee

There is no fee to enter this year. This is just a bit of fun with a chance of a trophy at the end of
the year.
