Club Challenge 2017 Standings

ARE YOU UP FOR THE CHALLENGE?

This year we are reviving the RMHP-RC CHALLENGE.  The list below includes an assortment of 5k – 1/2 marathon local races.  Club members who compete in 7 or more races will receive a commemorative shirt and be eligible for other awards based on the following point system:

Your individual finish time will be graded on a scale (www.howardgrubb.co.uk/athletics/wmalookup06.html) that takes into account age and gender.  In each race the top finisher among our club runners will receive 15 points, second 12 points, third 10 points, fourth 9 points, fifth 8 points, etc.  All finishers, regardless of time, will receive at least 1 point.

Example – if the first RMHP-RC runner is a 60-year-old female who runs 27:00 minutes, and the next club finisher is a 70-year-old male who runs 28:00 minutes, his graded time of 20:49 places him ahead of her graded time of 21:30.  He would receive 15 points; she would receive 12 points.

IF YOU CHOOSE TO PARTICIPATE, you must email our scorer (Matt Jankowich) with your race time within 48-hours of finishing your race:  matthew_jankowich@brown.edu

Matt will adjust your time based on age and gender and update the scoring throughout the year.  This will be a fun way to compare our club performances.
