Well done everyone who competed in the 2021 Club Championship, and congratulations to those who managed to take home a trophy. It was fantastic to see everyone receive their trophies at the Doddler Christmas Party, I’m always impressed at how well we all scrub up after 12 months of seeing nothing but technical tees.
In preparation for the 2022 Club Championships, our new Ladies Team Captain, Sharon Hutchings, has chosen our races as listed below. Please join us by pitching up for as many as you can – other than the club internal races (Milborne 10, Broad Oak Hilly and Stur 5) you are responsible for securing yourself an entry for each race.
Post your results from Strava, Garmin etc on the Doddler Members Facebook page or email them directly to Jane – firstname.lastname@example.org.
Unless we have further government imposed lock downs in 2022, all the above races must be attended in person, no virtual substitutions will be accepted.
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.
