This is to stay the same as in previous years - there are two competitions in this section - awards to 1st Lady and 1st Man in both - this runs from Jan 1st until Dec 29th

SPEED - based on fastest 3 runs in the year
AGE GRADING - based on 3 best percentage performances

CLUB ROAD CHAMPIONSHIPS - Awards to 1st in each age group from Under 20s upwards, Seniors, and all 5 Year Veteran age groups - from Ladies O/35, Men O/40 upwards to O/70s
Races to count this year are: 5kms - Doncaster Town Centre, 5 miles - Wombwell, 10kms - Penistone, 10 miles - Askern (if held) or Tadcaster as reserve - Half Marathon, 20 miles and Marathon based on your fastest time of the year (provided it is an accurate certified road course)

This is an all round competition where the first 3 Ladies and Men (any age) will win an award based on your best 5 out of the 7 club road championships - Ladies and Men ranked separate - 1st (or fastest) will receive 100 points, 2nd 99 points etc so a possible 500 points available - but to count in the prizes a member must run in at least 4 out of the 7 events

There are groups based on proven race ability, plus promotion and relegation from 2017. They are basically to reward members who compete week in, week out for the club - so the fastest runners may not necessarily win - which is often the case!! In this competition you are only running against those in your own group - points are 10 1st home, 9 for 2nd etc - you can still gain points if you are the only member there!! Your best total from 20 events count so a possible 200 points are available - there are many choices available throughout the year so you do not have to do them all!! As always I have tried to find events that do not clash with other important club events such as Track and Field Leagues, South Yorkshire Cross Country, Road and Cross Country Relays, County and Veteran Championships etc

Please note, to count - Club Vests must be worn - only exceptions are the Barnsley parkrun challenge, Winter and Summer track series, if a member is running for charity (and wears a charity running vest/t-shirt) in any event such as the London Marathon, Great North Run etc or is wearing a County, Northern or International etc vest including Veterans/Masters

Group Races to Count (some details may be provisional and may change, some may be added later):
