Erewash Running Incentive Championship
E.R.I.C. is a trophy awarded annually to the person accumulating the most points. The purpose is to reward an EVRC member who has clocked up a combination of personal running achievements and positive contributions to the club e.g. racing in an EVRC shirt, setting new PB’s, organising a club night out, marshalling at an event, competing in the leagues or an internal EVRC championship event. People can earn points for anything, we just need to know about it.
The competition will start and finish on 1st January each year.
E.R.I.C. will be presented to the winner at the Presentation/Buffet Evening.
The winner will hold the trophy for a year.
No points are awarded for races which clash with "your club needs you" races (e.g. leagues)
|Miles Raced||1 point per mile inc. decimals raced as EVRC||1 per mile||does not count if race clashes with a league or EVRC champs race (- 5 point penalty applied)||If the result is on the website its been included if not on the website its likely to have been missed so please flag it up|
|PB||AGE OR OVERALL||15||Must be 2nd attempt at the distance e.g. a debut 5k will not score a PB . Includes fell route PB's if route can be validated. As per roads it needs to be a second attempt . Road PB's are for statute distances (1m ,5k, 5m, 10k, 10m ,1/2, 20m, marathon). Ultras fall under Fell rules ie its course PB's not distance PB's.||Road routes must pass the EVRC Dubious Course Panel http://www.evrc.co.uk/content/evrc-dubious-course-panel-edcp . Fell routes need to pass Fell goat route check i.e. does it compare to previous races or has it changed enough to influence the time. Double points will be awarded for age and overall PB e.g if your V40 PB breaks your overall PB thats 15+15|
|Performance bonus||Standard race||1st 15, 2nd 12, 3rd 9, 4th 7, 5th 5||Overall or Age/gender. Age Groups count as per EVRC records (FV35 and up, MV40 and up), ie being 1st MSNR will not count.||If you win overall and age/gender group you will receive win points for both e.g. 1st place and 1st V40 = 30points|

|Overall PAIRS champs and individual champs races||1st 10 , 2nd 8, 3rd 6 ,4th 4||In PAIRS it’s the 'Pairs' finishing position that scores||There's a win bonus for each individual race and also the bonus for the final overall standings.|
|Club records Road||75 overall record, 50 age group||For records: Road routes must pass the EVRC Dubious Course Panel http://www.evrc.co.uk/content/evrc-dubious-course-panel-edcp . Multi terrain races are very unlikely to count unless they're clearly over distance. Point to point races wont count if they have an advantageous net drop in gradient|
|Club Records Fell (inc. ultra, multi terrain)||30 overall record, 15 age group, 5 for a vacant/new record||If there are no times for that race 5 points will be awarded. If there are no times as the route was revised e.g because of conditions 0 points will be awarded (1 off routes cant be beaten so wont be recorded as a record)||For Records: Fell routes need to pass the Fell Goat route check i.e. does it compare to previous races or has it changed enough to influence the time. Lower points than the road as the records are a lot thinner (there will be bonus's added up to the level of the road points if its a Billy Big B@ll@cks time).|
