Holcombe Harriers Championship 2018

Holcombe Harriers Club Championships 2018 – Let the Hounds loose!

The Rules:

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 1st December. (Followed by the Howler Championship party that evening)

Your result will only count if you race as a Holcombe Harrier. You should wear our club kit, where appropriate.

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, plus the size of the event.

Eg.MSen; MV40; MV50/55; MV60/65;   Eg. FSen; FV40; FV50/55; FV60/65

Events with a very small field will be M/F only.

If you choose a series event, you can do more than one race in the series but only your best result will count.

Only the events below will count towards the Championship, plus your one pre-chosen Wild Card.

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.
