Off Road Championship

The Off-Road Championship (ORC) aims to promote friendly competition among Tring Running Club members through participation in local races. It’s a championship for everyone, no matter what pace group and distance you run.

We will award a trophy for the “best” senior male and senior female for 2024. There is also an award for the “best” veteran male and female. Could that be you?!

How it works
1. There are 12 races that count in the ORC- these are posted on the website. Take part in some or all of these events to enter the competition. They are all off-road/trail and feature a range of distances.

2. You must be a TRC member to take part, and you must enter an event naming TRC as your club for your result to count. While we encourage you to wear the zebra stripes, you don’t need to wear a club vest or T-shirt, unlike in the Chiltern League Cross Country.

3. Points are awarded in both female and male categories. The first Tring runner to finish gets 20 points, top 10 places will score 20>11 and everyone else scores 10 points.

4. After each event, an updated league table will be shared so you can see who your nearest “rivals” are.

5. The final total score for any competitor will be a maximum of the best 6 of their individual results, but all participants will feature in the scoring even if they have done fewer than 6 races. The winner does not have to have competed in 6 events.

6. Veterans are classified as females aged 45 and above and males aged 50 and above on 1st January 2024. Seniors are classified as females and males aged 18 and above on 1st January 2024.

7. In the event of a tie for the championship winners, the best place/highest points for ORC individual race scores will prevail.
