What is the STAC club championship?
Info on how the STAC championship was intended to be below. The number of races that will count is TBC but will now be less than 14. There will not be a mini-championship this year:
The club championship is across 14 selected races over the year. A runners best 8 races will count towards the championship. There will be prizes for best female and male runner and the league table will be updated throughout the year.
There will also be a ‘mini-championship’ over 3 races; the Canal Run, East Leeds 10k and Escrick.
For the races chosen, we try to get a good variety of events; from distance, size, terrain and hills!
All 1st and 2nd claim members are welcome to join any or all the races. There is usually a good STAC turnout on all events. So even if you can only make one or two it’s a great way to do a run that you wouldn’t normally do with other STACs!
How does scoring work?
There is a maximum 400 points possible per race.
The fastest STAC will get 400 points; 200 points for the fastest time and 200 points for being best STAC.
Everyone else gets points related to how fast they were compared to the fastest time (so if a person was 25% slower they would get 150/200 points) and their STAC placing in that race (so if they were 5th fastest STAC 195/200) points. A total of 345/400 points for this example.
There are 14 races in 2020 and the best 8 will count towards the final placing in the table.
Throughout the year the club championship table will be updated as follows:
|Race No.||Table will be updated to show:|
|1||Best 1 from 1 race|
|2||2 from 2|
|3||2 from 3|
|4||3 from 4|
|5||3 from 5|
|6||4 from 6|
|7||4 from 7|
|8||5 from 8|
|9||6 from 9|
|10||6 from 10|
|11||7 from 11|
|12||7 from 12|
|13||8 from 13|
|14||8 from 14|
