Championship Information

Championship format

We will have a combined road, trail and fell championship for 2018, with "short", "medium" and "long" distance races in each discipline.

Stan Bradshaw Pendle Round alternative fixture

The Stan Bradshaw Pendle Round was penned in as the first fixture in our summer championship, but unfortunately it coincided with some distinctly "un-summery" weather, which will have made running and driving conditions potentially treacherous! In the event, no Harriers took part in the race, so the Committee took the decision to include the Pilgrims Cross race as an alternative fixture in the championship.

Equipment requirements for fell races

Fell races usually take place in remote and exposed areas, where weather conditions can change very quickly. Runners are strongly advised to take the following “best practice” equipment with them to every event:

  • Waterproof whole body cover (i.e. covering the torso from the head to the ankles)
  • Other body cover appropriate for the weather conditions; as a minimum, this will include a hat and gloves, but you may also wish to bring other equipment such as a fleece
  • A map (preferably waterproof) of the race route and surrounding areas (maps can often be downloaded from race websites)
  • A compass suitable for navigating the course (GPS type equipment is not acceptable)
  • A whistle
  • Emergency food rations
  • A bum-bag or back pack for carrying this equipment

This equipment is mandatory for all “long” events, regardless of the prevailing or forecast weather conditions.

For shorter events taking place in fine and settled weather, the race organiser may decide to waive some of these requirements.

Please note that some organisers may require runners to carry additional equipment beyond that listed above, for example, a lightweight foil bivi bag.

For full information about equipment requirements and other rules regarding fell running, please consult the Fell Runners Association website.

Qualifying criteria and rules

Here’s what you need to do in order to qualify for the 2018 Manchester YMCA Harriers Summer Championship:

  • You need to be a member of the Manchester YMCA Harriers!
  • You must complete at least five of the nine fixtures.

Scoring

Once you have qualified, points are awarded to runners based on their performance in each race, with the highest placed runner awarded one point, the next highest two points and so on. The runner with the lowest total number of points to meet the qualification criteria wins the championship.

Tie breaks

In the case where two or more runners are tied on points, those runners will then be ranked according to their head-to-head performances. If runners cannot be separated by head-to-head performances, they will be adjudged to have tied.

Note that this is different from how ties may have been settled in previous championships.
