Avon Valley Runners

Off Road Race Series

Rules for the Off Road Race Series 2022

This year (January to December) we will be returning to the format promised for 2020 keeping the Wiltshire League and the Gwent league events.

There will be 20 races from which to choose, all the WORL races for 2022 and all the Gwent League races for 2022 plus other events which may include some races further afield, to add variety to the choice.

However, only your best eight (8) races will count for the championship.

The first AVR runner will get 1 point, the 2nd will get 2 points and so on until all runners are accounted for. Non runners will get five points more than the number of points of the last runner of the highest attended race. The winner will be the runner with the least points.

Since only the best 8 races for each runner will count, so you don't have to run every race, however if there is a tie for the winners then the 9th and 10th etc. races will be taken into consideration until a winner is established.

Awards will be made to the top three highest scoring men and women.
