Club Championship 2018
The Club Championship is an annual competition where our members compete in various races across county Wicklow with focus on races closest to Laragh and Glendalough.
Races over half-marathon distances and above are not selected to allow even novice members to compete in most races. Similarly large commercial races with high entry fees are also never included.
The best 6 results achieved in any of the 20 races usually selected go towards the final tally.
Scoring happens using the 'Keswick AC' system: the first club runner across the line get's 100 points. Everyone else get's the same number of points as 100 less the difference in percentage between their time and the first club runner (i.e. if you finish 13% after our first club runner, you take home 87 points).
The male and female winner are awarded with the title of Club Champion 2018 and given a prize at the Annual Xmas Party and Awards.
