Harriers Challenge 2023

Click here to read Previous Harriers Challenges

 

 

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 37 races to choose from. 20 Road Races, 14 Off-Road Races, Plus 3 x Cross Country

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 ones 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 36 races (*except for the full marathon, and additional points) 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.

New for 2023 Additional points

For every event, we host we need volunteers to help set up (and take down), marshall and do the timekeeping.  Most of the time this means you can’t run (unless you help set up and take down). So we are adding additional 20 points for people volunteering!

To qualify for the additional points you MUST book online BEFORE the event (the list will be one or two weeks before the event) and turn up and help.
