TRC resurrected this popular race a few years ago for club members only and it continues to attract high numbers on a Wednesday evening. Details will be announced through club channels nearer the time.
Sep 10 – 2 Arms on 2 Legs half marathon
Possibly the new local classic, starting in Aylesbury and finishing in Wendover, taking in the Aylesbury Arm to Marsworth, the Grand Union main line to Bulbourne and the finally the Wendover Arm.
Entries are open at Runner’s World
Oct 28 – Beachy Head Marathon
Entries are open! Get in while the fee is low!
Nov 29 – Brenda Barlow (15km)
Club-only handicap race over the same route as our Ridgeway Run race. We take the time order for ORC scoring purposes rather than the handicap finishing positions. Details will be announced through club channels nearer the time.
Dec 10 TBC – Watlington XC (10km)
As those who ran the race in 2016 will testify, it’s a fantastic race, and enhanced by the new start / finish location which provides a proper downhill finish. If they change the date to something unsuitable we’ll consider switching to the Tadley Xmas XC (5m).
2017 Off Road Championship rules
The championship is open to all paid up members of Tring Running Club. Runners must be entered in an event as Tring RC for their result to count.
Points will be awarded in BOTH female and male categories as 25 for the 1st Tring runner to finish then consecutively down to 6 for the 20th Tring runner. ALL other finishers lower than 20th will receive 5 points each.
The final total score for any competitor will be a maximum of the best 9 of their individual results, but all participants will feature in the scoring even if they have done less than 9 races.
Veterans are classified as females aged 45 and above and males aged 50 and above on the 1st January of the current year.
Juniors are classified as females and males aged 17 and below on the 1st January of the current year.
In the event of a tie for the championship winners after the final race then count-back on best ORC individual race scores will prevail, e.g. 25 + 23 will place higher than 24 + 24.
