Club Championships

Club Championships 2019/20

The club champs is an annual competition focused around league and other local races.

It runs from 1st Dec 2019 to 31st Oct 2020.

There are separate champs for men and women, with prizes for 1st to 3rd place.

Points can be gained by running in designated club champs races and also volunteering to help at Striders events. The winner is the person with the most points at the end of the year.

Why take part?

  • Participate in races with other Striders
  • Open to all abilities - participation can win over speed!
  • Track your progress in the monthly standings throughout the year
  • Prizes awarded at the Annual Dinner


Six 50 point races - 50 for points for 1st Strider across the line, 49 for 2nd etc with a minimum of 30 points. Your best results for up to six races out of eight will count towards your total score.

Other champs races - These are worth an additional 20 points towards your total score, wherever your finish, up to a maximum of six races (120 points).

Bonus points - 10 points are available for anyone who runs/volunteers at all mid-week road races.


Points are also available for helping out at relevant club champs events and any other Striders hosted events, e.g. St Albans Stampede. Volunteering is worth 20 points unless specified, for up to three events.

You can do as much or as little as you like, with the flexibility to run the races that suit you. Points are automatically accrued provided you race as a Strider.

Age Graded Competition 2019/20

The age graded competition is separated from the club champs, but piggy backs off a number of club champs races.

There are competitions for men and women. The aim is to gain the highest average age graded percentage for the races you take part in.

Runs from 1st Dec 2019 to 31st Oct 2020.

Age graded percentages are calculated using standard road race tables which compare your time against the world's best performance for that race distance.

Your age graded score is the ratio of the approximate world-record time for your age and gender divided by your actual time. The calculation is based on your age in years, not just your age category.

Why take part?

  • Gain recognition for performance relative to your age
  • Aim for a target percentage
  • Track your progress throughout the year
  • 1st Prize trophy awarded at the Annual Dinner


Age graded races - All of the "50 point" road races from the club champs form the races of the age graded competition, from 1 mile to Half Marathon.

To qualify for the age graded competition you must compete in at least three of these age graded races.

Your final score will be the average age graded percentage from your best three races. So the more you do, the better your chances.

Any qualifying races you enter will automatically count towards the age graded competition, provided you race as a Strider.
