Race Challenge

This is a new award, based on individual runners completing a number of races of any distance from 5K upwards and are;-

The rules are as follows;-

  1. Runners must enter races during the calendar year, Jan-Dec.  These may include cross discipline events that include a run of at least 5K or LDWA events

  2. The race must be at least 5K; any race in excess of 5K will still only count as 1 towards your total regardless of the distance.

  3. The race result must be reported to Results@AFFRunningClub.org.uk within two weeks of completion.

  4. If a race result is not reported within two weeks it will not be allocated to your total.

  5. Races must be organised events and not you and a friend lapping a park a few times.

  6. Multiple lap races or team event races count as 1 for each individual runner.

  7. Parkruns and monthly AFF time trials will count towards your total.

  8. In the event that one or more runners enter the same number of races at the end of the year, the cup will be awarded to the runner who reached the total first in time.

Club Event Challenge

Another new award, that will be made to any Club runner who completes every Club Championship races and 3 Counties XC event during the championship year. There are five Club Championship races from 5K to Half Marathon and five cross country races in the Three Counties XC League (the last cross country is likely to be in January) and the County Championship event (also usually in January). To qualify a runner must complete all eleven races and report their results to Results@AFFRunningClub.org.uk within two weeks of completion.

Club Achievement Awards

Why have Club Achievement Awards?

To encourage all members of the Club to improve.  Some of us are fortunate in that we are often in with a chance of winning or getting a place in an event but most of us only achieve a personal best (PB) or age related best (ARB) from time to time.  The achievement award scheme is an attempt to give club members a measurable incentive to improve.

It is felt that a club member who has achieved a BRONZE standard would have the incentive to improve to a SILVER and perhaps eventually to a GOLD by putting in a little more effort and training.

Additional encouragement has been given to the beginner by the STANDARD award which enables a runner to experience a variety of distances without "time" being the important factor- running the distance is felt to be the prime objective.

What are the Club Achievement Awards?

Using a set of distance/time tables and taking into account the members sex and age it is possible to calculate an individual performance level.  A performance level of say 75% achieved by a 25 year old man can be considered to be of equal merit to a performance of 75% achieved by a 55 year old lady.

The Achievement Awards are made in recognition of attaining performance levels of 60% Bronze, 65% Silver, 70% Gold and 75% Elite.  Working the other way, a set of tables have been produced to illustrate the times relating to these performance levels for a variety of racing distances from 100 metres to marathon.

Individual performance levels for a subset of these distances are calculated and displayed on the Race Results page and are also used to produce an annual Age Related summary table.

How to Obtain an Award

Standard awards for Bronze, Silver, Gold and Elite will be issued annually at the AGM.  Only one award will be granted for each distance, that being the highest level achieved for the distance.  Awards will be progressive, so that if you achieve a Silver award one year, you will be looking to achieve Gold or Elite in the future.
