The aim of Club Championships is to encourage competition between club members at all levels, and to support local running clubs / local events where possible. Events are chosen to provide variety and are suitable for members of all levels within the club. This year we have included some non-standard distances as well as a mix of road, trail and XC. We try to choose races that are accessible by public transport, although where this is not possible we do encourage car sharing. There are also a number of races where entry will be paid for by the club.
The Ealing Eagles Club Championships year runs from May 2017 (i.e. after London Marathon) to the end of April 2018, with prizes being awarded at the main summer social in June 2018
Eagles must compete in FIVE or more distances in order to qualify for the Club Championships. Your best five races across different distances count towards their final score. The distances are:
7k (new distance for 2017/18)
For your marathon to be included as one of your races, you must have run in five other distances. Scores for the marathon will be added in at the end of April.
For all events points are awarded based on final finish position (i.e. gun times) against other competing Eagles with men and women having separate scoring – first male and first female will get 1 point; 2nd gets 2 points; etc. We use final finish position so you can see who you are racing and who is in front of you.
You have to finish the race and be registered as an Eagle in the race results in order for the result to count. It is your responsibility to ensure you are registered as an Eagle for the event (even if this is after the event).
We encourage you to run in an Eagles vest so everyone knows who they are racing as this is a competition among fellow Eagles! It is also a great advert for the club! The exception to this is Eagles organised events and the marathon. [NB you may be removed from the Club Championships results if you are identified as not having worn a vest]
All members are encouraged to compete, however the championship prizes can only be won by first-claim-eagles who are paid up members on the date of the final race.
Additional events may be added at the discretion of the committee, for example if a race is cancelled.
