To be eligible for the championship, a member must complete at least 4 races and at least one from each distance category (i.e. 5km, 10km, 10 mile, half marathon).

There will be an overall club championship award for one male and one female, and also age category awards for each male and female as follows: Senior (under 40), age 40-50, age 50-60 and age 60+. There will be only one award per age category - for example, if the overall male winner is age 40-50 there will be not a separate male age 40-50 award.

Points will be awarded in each individual race: the first male and female home each get 100 points, the second male and female each get 99 points etc.

If a member runs more than one race in each category, e.g. two 10ks, the race with the highest points will be used to determine the championship standings.

The Marathon Club Championship

For the first time in 2016/17 there will be a separate marathon award, and this will be awarded for the fastest age-graded marathon (26.2 miles) which a member runs anywhere in the world between 1 April 2016 and 31 March 2017.

There is a separate award for males & females. Members can run as many marathons as they want during the year, and their fastest time will count towards the marathon championship.

The member is responsible for submitting their times via the race results email address.

Chip times will be used where available.

Overall rules

Points will only be awarded to, and marathon times counted for, members who are fully paid-up on the date of the event.

Races must be run under your own name.

Members should run in club colours; although we are sympathetic to members who are raising money for a charity and wish to wear a charity vest.

For age graded / age category awards, a member’s age is fixed as at 1 April 2016 (i.e. the first day of the championship year).

Please ensure that your result is recorded on the results section of the website for the relevant event, otherwise it will not be counted.

Bracknell Forest Runners Club Championships 2018

We'll be sticking to the same format for the Club Championship this year which, for those who are not familiar with it, is:

Four distances (5km, 10km, 10 mile and Half Marathon)

Three races for each distance

To qualify for awards (overall and age category) you MUST complete AT LEAST one race and each of the four distances.

Points are awarded according to your club and gender position in the race from 100 down to 1 for each sex (ie 100 for 1st BFR Man and 1st BFR Lady, 99 for 2nd BFR Man and 2nd BFR Lady, 98 for 3rd BFR Man and 3rd BFR Lady and so on and so forth)

The great thing about the championship is that regardless of your pace you can use it to compete against your running peers as well – this is the reason that you MUST wear club kit in these races in order to score points – you'll be able to see that sneery deer in front of you as a target to chase!

The committee are delighted to announce the following races have been selected for this season Club Championship...
