Wellington Scottish Summer Champs

We figured it would be a bit of fun to have an unofficial Scottish Summer Champs so as to keep the momentum going from what has been a great winter, encourage people to attend certain events (as racing is always more fun when there are more of you) and to encourage people to give new events a go. This year we have even added a bit more spice by having prizes (sort of). Also a big thanks to Alasdair who will be working out everyone's results. Here is how it works:

Rules

  • You need to run three events between 1 Nov and 28 Feb

  • The three events must include events from 2 of the 4 categories (track, road, trail and wildcard)

  • You get bonus points for running extra races

  • Everyone competes against everyone else – the summer champs will not have different grades for men, women, juniors, masters etc.

Points

  • Points are earned at each race according age-grade performance (http://www.runnersworld.com/tools/age-grade-calculator). Your age-graded score is the ratio of the approximate world-record time for your age and gender divided by your actual time. E.g. A 45-year-old woman running 5k in 21:00 would score 74.84 points. A 35-year-old man who ran the same time would score 63.17 points.

  • To age-grade the Holdsworth/Jumbo, times will be converted to equivalent half-marathon performance and then age-graded.

  • 2 points for every additional race beyond 3

  • Top five performances for each event will score extra points (from 1 to 5)

Prize Giving

  • We will announce official results on 5 March (Tuesday) but will have regular updates.

  • Prizegiving will be at the Macs Brewbar on 5 March after the Waterfront 5km.

  • There will be $50 Macs Brewbar vouchers for our three place getters. However there is a catch, you have to be there to claim otherwise said voucher will be spent by those who do turn up.

Events

  • Track - Scottish Night of Miles (only the mile counts) on 8 Dec, November Regional Track Meet at Newtown on 17 Nov, Wellington Centre Champs (weekend of 2-3 of Feb, any event 800m or above)

  • Road - Round the Bays (any event) on 17 Feb, Waterfront 5km (your fastest time over Nov - Feb), Pelorus Trust on the 25 Nov

  • Trail - Rimutaka Incline on the 10 Nov, Jumbo Holdsworth on the 26th of Jan, Hutt River Trail Event (any event) on the 12 Jan

  • Wildcard - the 10,000m on 10 November.
