Holcombe Harriers Club Championships 2017 – Let the Hounds loose!
You will be put into a Hound Team of 4.
Your best result of SIX races will count. You must compete in at least THREE different disciplines, PLUS the HOOPLA which will be on Saturday 2nd December. (Followed by the Howler Championship party that evening)
The team with the most points at the end of the year will be club champions.
You will gain points according to your positioning in your category.
The categories depend on the categories of each individual event
Eg.MSen; MV40; MV50/55; MV60/65; Eg. FSen; FV40; FV50/55; FV60/65
Only the events below will count towards the Championship.
The Points system:
1st in category = 50 points
Each position below = one point less eg 20th in category = 30points
You always get 10 points for finishing
Remember – the aim is to have all members of the team completing at least 6 of the races from 3 disciplines for the team to have a chance of winning and therefore make the championship exciting.
