Club Runner of the Year

Results of the Runner of the Year up to the end of  August 2014 is here.

Here’s the Runner of the Year 2013.

A brief explanation for 2013:

  • The Runner of the Year (RoY) is an award presented to the best all-round athlete in the club irrespective of age or sex
  • After another interesting and competitive Runner of the Year in 2012, it has been decided to keep the format roughly the same for 2013
  • However the Committee are still of the opinion that the Park Runs and Chevin runSundays were having too much influence on the final outcome
  • Again this year there will be three races in the main categories plus an extra category for the Park Runs/Chevin runSunday of which you may only count one score
  • Races have not been pre-selected so can be planned to suit each individual
  • An equal emphasis has been adopted for off-road and road races.

The races are divided into 6 categories:

  1. Off-road with a distance of up to and including 10k
  2. Off-road with a distance of over 10k
  3. Open road races with a distance of up to and including 10k
  4. Open road races with a distance of over 10k
  5. Park Run / Chevin runSunday – One race may count
  6. Track – One of the two Club track races may count.

Off-road includes cross-country, trail and fell races. All the cross-country races would be in category 1.

Members may submit any races that fall into these categories.

10 RACES to count with at LEAST ONE RACE IN EACH of the OFF-ROAD and ROAD CATEGORIES (CATEGORIES 1 TO 4).

Categories 5 and 6 are optional.

PLEASE NOTE CHANGE FOR 2013:- 10 races out of a maximum of 14 to count. Remember only 1 track event and 1 Park Run/Chevin runSunday can count.

No Harrogate District Summer Race League or veterans-only races to count.

Results must be posted on the Otley AC website stating:
Date, type of race (eg trail, fell, road), winner’s official time and your official time.
