The Wildhogs Fell Running Championship for 2019

 

Following on from last years successful series, the Wildhogs Grand Prix events for 2019 have now been announced. Please see the below table showing the races.

 

This is a fell running series of 26 races (long and short distances). So if you feel like giving your fell shoes a proper workout come along and let the battle begin.

 

To take part in the Championship you will compete in a minimum of 4 of the races listed below however, one of your events must be long i.e. 10 or more miles (or 16+ Km)- (this rule doesnt apply to lady runners-i.e. ladies dont need to do any long events to qualify)- with a maximum of 8 races counting towards your final Championship score. Any Handsworth member, (first or second claim) can take part.

 

Club colours preferred but not compulsory, please let the series organizer or a committee member aware at beginning or end of race to ensure you get counted.

 

Scoring

 

The first Handsworth runner in each race will score 40 points, the second 39 and so on. The allocation of basic points will not be age or sex related, the points will be allocated purely on your finishing position, however, bonus points are available

see below..

 

Bonus Points

 

Participation in The Inter-club cross country races will play a part, scoring 3 bonus points for one race, 7 for two races and 11 for three races.

 

Bonus points are also available for veterans (Age Category Bonus) 1 point for V40, 2 points for V50 and 3 points for V65 for each race, no more than 40 points can be scored per race..

 

 

Ties

 

In the event of any runners scoring the same number of points, the runner who has scored better head to head with his or her rival will be the winner. If this fails to separate the runners then the runner who has a beard will be the winner. If neither or both runners have a beard it will be called a draw.

 

Prizes

 

Your age group will be determined by your age on the 01/01/2019.

 

We no longer have separate vet prizes it is now simplified to male and female 1-2-3.

 

Races

 

Please check the races are still going ahead at the published date and time prior to travelling- most of the races have website links from our own site Via this link or also check for race updates on the FRA site: http://www.fellrunner.org.uk/ . Some of the Wildhogs races require a pre-entry so ensure you enter in plenty of time to avoid disappointment. Please also be mindful of safety requirements for fell racing as fell races take place in remote locations. Please take time to read through the runners safety information on this website: http://fellrunner.org.uk/organisers.php
