December 16, 2016

silvercup

7 November 2016 – 30 September 2017

The Annual Awards Presentation event  at the end of each running year sees the recognition of the achievement of club members who have raced at various local running events.

Each year there are a number of trophies presented as follows:

10k – fastest female and fastest female time

Half marathon – fastest female and fastest male time

Marathon – fastest female and fastest male time

Club Champion – (based on points accumulated over the year for placing in the designated Club Championship events listed below)

This past year we have welcomed lots of new members to our Club, and it would be fantastic to see some renewed enthusiasm towards our Club Championship events.  These events follow along the training pathway toward the Gold Coast Marathon weekend which for many is the target event for the year.  Our coaches have chosen these events carefully to make sure they fit into the programme for “ultimate success”!  (true story….it works 🙂

CLUB CHAMPIONSHIP RULES

  1. Distance category awards criteria

– Awards to the quickest male and female 10km, 21km and 42km race anywhere

(IE. not limited to the Club Championship points events listed below)

  1. Club Champs criteria

– The format is as follows:

  1. There are 12 races to choose from
  2. 5 of the 12 will count towards your club champs points tally
  3. 10 points for a distance category win with points reducing by 2 for each subsequent placing (e.g. first male and female in the same event earn the same points)

Restrictions:

  1. You need to be a financial member of South Pine Striders at the time of the event for the points to count.
  2. The 12 races is not to encourage you to do all 12 but rather provide options and time for recovery. Choose wisely.
  3. No complaints will be entertained.
  4. You need to run in your own registered number.
  5. You should run in Striders club kit to run faster.
  6. Your safety and health and that of other competitors is of primary importance.
