2020community 

championship

The simple idea of the 2020 Championship is for people to go out and enjoy some runs together outside of the usual Monday night run. There's an element of competition, but the primary aims are the social and fun element of doing some runs as a community and for people to experience some runs they may not have done on their own. Each run is followed by a drink or a bite to eat somewhere too.

 

how it 

works

There will be 11 championship runs from January to November 2020. Runners will count their best scores from 8 of the 11 races will be counted. A league table will then be kept updated.

The first placed male and female from Run The Joules in each race will receive 15 points, with the second placed male and female from Run The Joules receiving 14 points. This will continue down to the 15th place male and female receiving 1 point. If there are more than 15 males or 15 females taking part in a race, all those placed outside the top 15 will receive 1 point for taking part.

If less than 15 males or 15 females take part, the first placed male and female will still be given 15 points, with points allocated on a descending basis to the final placed runner.

If a runner competes in less than 8 of the runs, their point total will be determined from the number of races they compete in.

If a runner competes in 8 to 11 of the races, their point total will be determined from their best 8 performances.

Therefore, the maximum point total for any individual from the 8 qualifying races will be 120.


Bonus Points

Additional points can be scored from the following activities:
1.
Age-graded Parkrun. From 1st January 2020 to 15th November 2020 all Run The Joules members can submit their best age-graded parkrun result recorded between these two dates. 15 points will be given to both the highest performing male and female runners, with 14 points given for second best performance, descending to 1 point for the 15th best performance. To be considered for points you must submit a link or screenshot of your qualifying performance to runningthejoules@gmail.com by 30th November 2020.

2.
Fastest Parkrun time. From 1st January 2020 to 15th November 2020 all Run The Joules members can submit their quickest Parkrun time recorded between these two dates. 15 points will be given to both the highest performing male and female runners, with 14 points given for second best performance, descending to 1 point for the 15th best performance. To be considered for points you must submit a link or screenshot of your qualifying performance to runningthejoules@gmail.com by 30th November 2020.

3.
Marathon. From 1st January 2020 to 15th November 2020 all Run The Joules members can submit their best marathon time recorded between these two dates. 10 points will be given to both the highest performing male and female runners, with 9 points given for second best performance, descending to 1 point for the 10th best performance. Any marathon times outside of the top ten will be given 1 point. To be considered for points you must submit a link or screenshot of your qualifying performance to runningthejoules@gmail.com by 30th November 2020.
