TRAC Club Championship 2018

Following consultation with members and taking on board representations made the officers of the Club have finalised the following rules for the Championship for 2018.

We hope that this will reward the competitive members of the club for their running achievements. This year the championship is open to all TRAC members (inc non UKA membership option), who compete in a TRAC top!

We have two trophies and accolades up for grabs for both Males and Females in 2018!

We are also introducing an ‘OPT OUT’ option of the Championship competition. To opt out simply email: - Tracy.Clow72@gmail.com by the 25th March 2018. Stating you are opting out of the competition, you, of course can still participate in the race. By opting out, the club will not record your entry or count towards the club championship or participation awards.

The annual awards will include a Club Championship, with points awarded on the basis of results in races. We have added races which are free to enter and also cover various distances.

The purpose of this award is to recognise the two members in the Club who have got out there in a Club vest the most times in a year which all helps to promote the Club. The onus under this rule will be for individual members to notify the Championship Secretary with the details of the races they have finished in and provide a link to the results.
