Rules

The Championship is open to all first claim members.

Individuals must complete four events from the list of “nominated” events.( See Junior Championship Races 2024)

An individual’s final score is calculated using the total of their best three age and gender graded scores.

The race finish times are taken from the official published race results. Chip timing will be used, where available.

Only results that record the individual competing as a BRJ member will be scored.

Finish times will be converted into an age and gender percentage score using the Howard Grubb WMA (October 2016 edition).

Self-timed races will not be eligible.

The age category is determined by the member’s age on the 1st January.

Clothing shall be worn that identifies you as a member of BRJ.

( For further details see Senior Championships)

Junior Club Standards

In conjunction with the Annual Running Championship there is a Performance Awards Scheme.

To award effort and to encourage further achievement the club has a series of awards for performance during a championship race.

Finish times will be converted into an age and gender percentage score using the Howard Grubb WMA (October 2016 edition). This compares a child’s performance against an international record of the performance of a child of the same gender and age running over the same distance. Only one badge of a specific grade and distance  will be awarded for a performance of a similar grading.

(e.g. Only one badge is earned for running the same time over 3K over different events)

There are three badges to be won over the following distances.

One Mile; 2 Kilometres 3 Kilometres 5 Kilometres

Bronze : Time is from 50%-59.99%  WMA grade

Silver: Time is from 60%-60.99% WMA Grade

Gold: Time is over 70% WMA Grade

These cloth badges can be worn on Club hoodies etc as a mark of achievement.
