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 (2021 - 2022) 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 20 and the next 19, and so on down to 1 for the 20th 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 set up errors, marshalling 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 20 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 6 participation scores - the highest score wins. Owing to COVID-19 restrictions there are currently no HRRL races, CC6s, or ParkRuns to sign up to, but races at other distances are being run - see the RunBritain website - and we hope things will return to normal as soon as possible, obviously.
From 2021/22 volunteering at TRC-run races and ParkRun/junior ParkRun is recorded on a separate column.

If there are insufficient numbers in the age group category, members can qualify in either the age group below (for V70 and V80) or the age group above (for U20)
If the winner of the V70 does not qualify for a V70 award due to less than three in the category, and V70 is faster than V60 runners, the V70 will receive the V60 prize.
If the winner for the overall championship is also part of the veteran age category then the award for the veteran age group will go to the second-placed veteran member.
If a member from the Senior age category wins the overall championship, the award for the senior age category will go to the second-placed Senior member.
