Road Running

For basic information on the Berkshire County Road Running Championships, please see the article entitled "who, what, when, where".

What's new for 2018

Phil has been doing a sterling job with this for many years but felt it was time to pass the baton on, and in my wisdom (or was it due to the painkillers from my latest running injury ?) I agreed to take it on. So I am you new road running secretary and so it gives me please to introduce myself. My name is Denise and I have been running for about 4 years as a member of Bracknell Forest Runners. I have won a couple of Championship medals in that time and certainly didn't want to see this come to an end.

Numbers of entrants to the Champs have been dropping though and so this year some changes are going to be trialled. We are going to keep the same format, there will be 4 races of different distance over the calender year. These races can be from anywhere from 5K to a marathon, but not every distance will run every year. As normal medals will be awarded for the first three finishers in each age and gender category, with points also awarded for the overall Championship Trophy which is awarded each Novmeber at the County AGM.

In order to keep this interesting, each year the least popular race of the four will be replaced. Having different races and distances each year will hopefully make these Championships more inclusive. The races chosen will either be in Berkshire (or very close to Berkshire).

Entries open on January 1st, please don't e-mail me before then.
