The race championships for 2020 Here is the list of races included in the GVS Main Club Championships for 2020. 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.
This year we will use the FRA fell race categories to determine our championship distances. Under 10k is classified as a short race, between 10k and 20k is a medium and over 20k is long. 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.
We hope lots of you will take part. Good Luck!

First Strider in gets 60 points, 2nd 59 and so on. In the event of a tie both runners will receive the same score with the next person getting the next but one 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, otherwise timing is decided by the published official results. In cases where the championship states that runners may enter on more than one occasion eg Park Runs, positions will be determined by ordering everyone’s best time.
Dates listed here may be subject to change. Accurate dates are stated where possible but some races have not yet been announced for 2020 and dates are based on the 2019 date. Similarly some race links are not yet available and the 2019 one is included here where possible. Please check for updates.
(tbc) = to be confirmed. Provisional dates may mean this list changes slightly if dates clash once known.
A downloadable Calendar file is included for you
to automatically add these dates to your phone, tablet or desktop
calendar applications. Thanks Aidan Grant for creating this for us,
