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)

 Club records Road75 overall record, 50 age group For records: Road routes must pass the EVRC Dubious Course Panel . 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 recordIf 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).
