Club Challenge 2022

 

The Club Challenge is a free to enter challenge for all members of NDRC. Entry is automatic and the winner is the person who accumulates the most points over the year after completing at least 9 races. You can complete as many as you like. The first race is the Queens Head 5k on December 27th 2021 and the last race is the December Derby Runner Cross Country race. The races chosen are local and either free or cheap to enter. Each person is allocated a race predicted time calculated by a race pace calculator, based on performances at races in 2021. After 2022 the time a runner completed the race in previous year will be the handicap time. For every new member the race pace calculator will be used and then the same process followed. Discretion may be used for those who’ve had serious injury.

A wildcard race is added this year. This is any race up to half marathon distance that an individual is training for which they can ask to be in the club challenge before running it.

Rules

You are actively encouraged to run in your Club Vest.

No limit to the number you can complete, but you must complete at least 9 for a prize from either the road or off-road lists.

Times will be taken from race results and chip times where they are offered. In the event of a chip failure or results failure runners will be asked to submit a watch time by screenshot of their time.

  • NWIP, The Avenue, Community 5k: 1 time can be submitted for each run but once submitted that’s final. No changes permitted (run them all and submit your best time). Submit these through the submission form HERE  or to club email – clubchallenge.northderbyshirerc@membermojo.co.uk
  • Derby Runner League (formerly BDL): Your best result for 1 x road and 1 x cross country will be counted. For every Booths you run you get 10 points, so to run all 10 you’ll get 100 plus your performance points. No need to submit, all taken them from results.
  • The wildcard race is yours to choose and is counted as 1 of the 9 needed to complete the club challenge. If you want this race added please inform me (Shaun Johnson) via email the week before the race and a handicap time based on your start of year times will be issued using the race pace calculator. Points will be allocated again based on chip time unless of failure and screenshot of Strava or Garmin will be accepted. Once a wildcard is submitted no changes are permitted. You do not have to submit a wildcard race to complete.
  • Dog assisted times won’t be accepted.

Trophies for Male 1 2 3 and Female 1 2 3. A momento will be given to everyone who completes 9 or more races.

Remember: You need to complete 9 of the races listed below unless you submit a wildcard race – then it’s 8
