2017 Casnewydd Championship

How It Works

We select races of various distances (4 miles, 10k, 10 miles, half marathon, etc) throughout the year.

Everyone gets points according to their finishing position (150 points for 1st, 149 points for 2nd...etc), men & ladies scored separately. These points are collected in a league table & updated after each race.

The exception to these points are any marathon distance event in the year (which scores you 150 points regardless) and taking part in the club Gwent Leisure Centre League races, which earn you 30 points per race.

We are also running a league table with men & ladies combined, all scored on a handicap system (similar to golf) based on their best Newport parkrun time. We have called this our Level Playing Field (LPF) Championship.  

The LPF has a number of awards based on the types of runs that occur through the year. Similar to the Tour De France, we have a yellow jersey for the overall leader, polka dot jersey for the highest points on the hilly races, green jersey for the highest points over speedy races and a white jersey for the highest new member (a member who joined in the year prior to the Championship or the year of the Championship). For further information on the calculation, see here

Please note that this championship calendar runs from Jan 2017 for 12 months and that for the whole of the championship year you remain in the age category that you are at the start of the championship.
