Senior Hill Championship

Here are the races that will comprise the Hawks Hill Championship for 2020.  All are fairly local, suitable for all and cover some terrific routes over a variety of terrain.  If you’re new to hill running these will be a great introduction to share with your clubmates, so hopefully we’ll have a decent turnout and some good competition.  For any advice, lift shares, or further information, get in touch with Steve Matthews on 01382 807181 or s.p.matthews@dundee.ac.uk.  See you on the hills 😀

A minimum of five races (four for V60 and above) must be completed to qualify for the Championship.  The best five results will count toward the final points total.

Ten Points will be awarded to the first Hawks finisher in each race, decreasing by one for each position in the top 10 (2nd=9 points , 3rd = 8 points, etc.)

Every runner will receive a minimum of one point for each race.

Only athletes entered as a Hawk will qualify for championship points.

Points will also be awarded as above in each age category (v40, v50, etc).  Category to be decided at time of first race in series.

If the overall club champion qualifies for a category prize then the next best in category will win that age group.

If a race does not go ahead an alternative will be added to the series.

In the event of a tie on points then head to head record will be the decider.
