  • Dewsbury 10k has sold out. There are approx. 50 STAC’s going, so keep an eye on Facebook to see if anyone is transferring nearer the time.
  • Other races with dates TBC may not happen, may clash with other events or may clash with a PECO race. In these circumstances a replacement racer will be found.
  • Some races are expected to sell-out quickly; particularly the Canal Run.
  • Where entry is open, there is a link added above to take you to the booking site
  • Scarborough will be an ‘away’ race – there will be a coach to this. More info nearer the time.

What is the STAC club championship?

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:
