KH Montage 1

 

SML These are fun and friendly 5K events that take place one evening per month throughout the summer, with each club hosting one event. Every runner for the club scores a point. The top six men and top four ladies for each club score additional extra points. Always a great atmosphere and plenty of support for nervous first timers!The League was formed on the 15th May 2003. Clubs currently involved are Cambridge & Coleridge AC (C&C), Cambridge Triathlon Club (CTC), Haverhill Running Club (HRC), Newmarket Joggers (NJ), Ely Running Club (ERC) and Saffron Striders (SS).

1) Every runner earns a runner point

No matter how fast or slow you run, you WILL score a point for the club if you complete the race. It’s simple – the more runners we have, the more points we get. This is the one competition in which every single one of us can contribute to the team score. That’s why we love it!

2) The fastest 4 ladies and 6 men from each club earn additional points

This is where we get the calculators out…our fastest runners get additional points based on their finishing positions. Using our winning ladies’ team at the Kedington race as an example, here’s how it works:

Our fastest 4 girls were Sian-Marie (1st), Siobhan (6th), Mary Ann (10th) and Cheryl (27th) so we add those placings together: 1+6+10+27=44.

Now we subtract our total number of female runners. At Kedington we had 64 HRC ladies, so 44-64 gives us a final score of -20. The LOWEST score wins!

The winning team gets 6 points, second 5 points and so on, its these points you see in the league table (above).

So that is basically how it works, but do not assume that your position doesn’t matter if you are not one of our fastest runners, because…

3) Even if you are not one of our fastest 4 or 6, you can still reduce other clubs’ scores!

Every time you pass a competitor, you are pushing them back by one place. Even if you are not in our top 4 ladies or 6 men, you may be ahead of other clubs’ fastest runners!

Again using the ladies’ competition as an example, the last ‘fastest four’ runner at Kedington ran a time of 27:58 (a Saffron Strider). Therefore every HRC lady who was faster than 27:58 helped to push back that lady, and others, thereby reducing their club’s score. Twelve of our ladies did this – so please do not assume you are ‘just’ a point! Every time you pass a competitor it can really make a difference!

4) Ladies can reduce men’s scores! (But not vice versa)

The men’s competition is calculated using their OVERALL placing, whereas the female competition is based on GENDER position. This means that if our fastest ladies are able to get ahead of other clubs’ fastest 6 men (which we did at Newmarket and Kedington!), we can help the men by depriving the other clubs of points.

That’s it, easy! But if ever in doubt, just run as fast as you can!

 Trip down memory lane – remember this
