The Pairs championship is a 4 race series over the summer held on our normal Wednesday club nights. There will be 3 Pairs and 1 Handicap race. Your best 3 scores from the 4 races will be counted. The races are set up with built in handicap’s so anybody could win. The point of this? GLORY!!!!....and a big trophy.
PAIRS RACE ELEMENT
Race to be run over the normal handicap course. HERE (6mile loop over our fields, the faster you are the further you'll run and the less the slower runner has to cover)
All entrants will be listed according to ability. (Fastest first – Slowest last)
Pairings will be decided as follows:-
Fastest runner paired with slowest runner, Second fastest runner paired with second slowest runner and so on.
All runners will set off at the same time. The faster runner in each pairing will run in the normal direction (anti clockwise) and carry a baton.
The slower runner in each pairing will run in the opposite direction (clockwise).
When pairs meet up the baton must be passed to the slower runner. Both runners then turn round and run back the way they came.
The first complete team (not necessarily together!!) to cross the finishing line will win that night’s race.
Handicap at The Navigation (Navigation Inn, Risley Lane, Derby DE72 3BP.)
Its a race where anybody could win. The faster you are the bigger the handicap you'll receive (time handicap, not something more sinister). Best performance on the night will take the points
Points will be awarded for each element like this:-
Assuming there are 24 competitors in the first race then the winner will receive 24 points, second 24 and so on down to 1.
The first team back will receive a point for each team they beat so in this example 24 people = 12 teams, therefore the winning team receive 12 points, the second team will receive 11 points etc.
When all 4 elements are complete the Champion will be the person accumulating the most points.
