The Club Championships are used to determine which male and female club members have demonstrated the best overall individual performances and league participation levels over the course of the season (1st September to 31st August). The winners are announced as part of the club awards ceremony at the end of the year. You do not have to have your races recorded on the Championship tables if you prefer to keep them private - please inform the club scorer Dot Kennard, thanks.
The current tables (2023 - 2024) are available below. Each table also includes the volunteering column which is scored separately
The PERFORMANCE aspect is measured using 5 race distances which are; 5 miles, 10K, 10 miles, Half Marathon, and Marathon. The faster your times over these distances, the better your score. The fastest performance scores 30 and the next 29, and so on down to 1 for the 30th fastest performance. The Committee has decided that only accurately measured races count for the performance columns - those on www.coursemeasurement.org.uk will qualify automatically, plus any others measured with a wheel (check with race organisers). If races are certified/measured but are longer than the advertised distance your result will still be counted based on your official results. If the race is found to be shorter than the official distance (course setup errors, marshaling mistakes, etc) then these results will not count for the club championship.
The PARTICIPATION aspect is measured using the various racing leagues that Totton competes in. The higher your individual league position, the better your score, but remember, league position is determined by participation level first - you won't score highly by doing only 1 race! The top 30 ranked members score on each column.
Your overall score is the sum total of your best 3 out of 5 performance scores and your best 3 out of 5 participation scores - the highest score wins.
Volunteering at TRC-run races and ParkRun/junior ParkRun is recorded in a separate column.

To be eligible for any award you need to be a member of the club on the last day of the respective club champion season (31st August)
If any athlete leaves the club mid-way through the season or fails to renew then their result will be removed from the club championship scoring with effect from the date that they leave.
The highest band in the parkrun column is 41+.
