Main Club Championship 2018

Note: Some dates are only provisional (*) at the moment and are based on 2017 dates. We will compile more information as time progresses but the list is offered here as is at the moment. Entry to some races will sell out so enter early to avoid being disappointed, oh and some will be already open. We will provide links as soon as we can. This page is new so it may have a few gremlins so please be patient!

Summer Fell Championship (2017) see menu above, or click:- HERE

Here is the list of races included in the GVS main 2018 championships. We have included links to as much information as is available at the time of posting and will update as soon as more information becomes available. Links to websites, route maps and entry sites are shown where known, but whilst we have done our best to be as accurate as possible you are advised to check for yourself to ensure we have got these correct. If you find any errors please do let us know so we can correct it. So all we can say is good luck to all in 2018.

FRA fell race categories are quoted after the race names in brackets but please note the distance grading listed may differ slightly from our own championship distance. They have slightly different guidelines. Only our distances will count towards the championships. On other races I have included a guide to the distance for the race.

Result links will be available here as soon as we find out where to find them... Please be patient some organisers are quite slow to publish results.

Notes:

First Strider in gets 60 points, 2nd 59 and so on. In the event of a tie both runners will receive the same score

Your best 8 scores from the list will be used to calculate final standings. To qualify you must complete at least one race from each category (Road, Trail and Fell) and at least one race of each distance (Short, Medium and Long)

All races will be decided by chip timing where it is available, unless they are a time trial. If a race is a time trial then each runner may enter as many times as they like and positions will be determined by ordering everyone’s best time

Dates listed here may be subject to change. I have got accurate dates where possible but some races have not yet been announced for 2018 and so I have had to assume based on the 2017 date. Similarly some race links are not yet available and the 2017 one is included here. Please check back for updates around the start of 2018
