When you enter, nominate your club from the drop down box. If your club does not appear in the list, you have the ability to add it manually. A Club need not be a formally constituted Club but can be any fitness or training group. You just need a name.
The Club that wins the Club Challenge will be that which accumulates the greatest number of points for the races in accordance with the following formula:-
- by turnout, weighted at five points per runner, and
- by performance with points awarded for placings in the races, (10 for 1st, down to 1 for 10th). These points will apply over all races, i.e. 50 km, 30 km, 15 and 5 km. Points for the four person relay will also apply but will be shared between the team members.
The total points awarded will be calculated by our electronic timing wizards to enable the winning Club to be determined in time for prizegiving at the end of the day. A Perpetual Shield will be awarded, to which the name of the winning Club will be added.Also, there will be a group photo with complimentary image to be made available to each member.
Clubs may bring their own marquee if they prefer, but preferably only 3 x 3 please.
PLEASE NOTE…. when you enter the Register Now portal, you will be asked if you are entering as a participant or creating a team. You use the ‘creating a team’ option only if you are entering the 4 person relay. It has nothing to do with the Club Challenge. If you are entering as a solo, click on ‘enter as a participant’ and after a while you will see a drop down box where you nominate your Club or group.
One last thing, when entering, please give us the name of the contact person, so we can be in touch when your Club reaches 10 entrants, by clicking the yes/no option in the drop down box. It does not matter if more than one person nominates as the contact person.
