Our Club Championship Race for May is the very popular Broad Oak Hill. This is a road route of around 4 miles, and as the name suggests, there may be a hill involved. This is an internal club race to be held in place of training on Thursday 20th May. There is usually a recce of the route during training the week before so if you’ve never done the race before this will be a useful practice. But don’t worry the race is marshaled.
Post your results from Strava, Garmin etc on the Doddler Members Facebook page or email them directly to Jane – firstname.lastname@example.org.
Due to Covid deferrals some races will have limited entries this year, but don’t worry if you don’t get an entry we will accept a virtual run over the same route, but it has to be in the calendar month the race is held.
If a race is cancelled, we will run a virtual equivalent over the race route in the month it was scheduled.
Any 5km or Marathon race can be achieved at an actual event or virtually over a Strava segment (i.e. elapsed time, not moving time).
Age-adjusted Club Championships
This championship aims to reward effort rather than outright speed. Actual race times are adjusted for age, so that older runners get their times reduced to what it is calculated they would have achieved in their prime. The adjustments are made using an online age-graded results calculator. The effects don’t do in until around 35, so if you are younger than this, your times won’t change. The age-adjusted times are used to put runners in a revised race order. Points are then assigned according to race position (1 point for first, 2 for second, and so on).
Normally the championship is based around 12 local races, roughly one each month as well as your best 5K and marathon for the year. You must have participated in (and finished) 5 of the events to qualify. Your points from your best 5 race results are then added up, and the lower your overall total is, the better you have done.
There are separate bunny rabbit awards for the three best men and three best women.
Please submit your best 5K and marathon times as and when they happen to email@example.com and/or message Jane Ward so that they can be kept updated throughout the year.
