HRC 5K Time Trial

HRC Time Trial 2021

For 2021 we are aiming to run a total of 9 Time Trials. This will be along the usual summer and winter routes as detailed on the web site. The competition will be decided on your best 6 results based on the wava scoring system, we know that runners would be unlikely to be able to make all the time trials and of course gives you opportunity to volunteer!

Time Trials will revert back to mass starts with the finish token system reimplemented – just check in with the marshal taking names on the evening to get your name on the official results.


There is no longer a need to pre register but we ask runners to be mindful of the latest National guidelines.


Please join us at The Royal Exchange for a social drink after the Time Trial, you’ve earned it! From about 8pm onwards.

All runners are requested to adhere to all social distance rules at all times. In the event of overtaking, it is the responsibility of the faster runner to ensure they overtake at a safe distance. Please do not congregate in groups at the start and finish areas and bear in mind you are representing Haverhill Running Club whilst taking part in an organised event.

Failure to comply with these guidelines may result in the runner being ineligible for future time trials.

These guidelines are subject to change through the year in the event of Covid regulations changing nationally.

Competition And Results

This year we are having a small change to help increase the competitiveness of the Time Trial Grand Prix. Out of the nine proposed Time Trials the final score will be based on the BEST SIX Wava scores for each runner.

There will be an overall 1st, 2nd and 3rd place as before with the shield going to the winner.

In addition there will be a competition based on age category with the following bandings:












Based on the age of the runner at the start of 2021, As we are using the wava score these are mixed groups.

Virtual Time Trials (Jan 2021 – Feb 21)

In light of the current lockdown we are unable to hold our normal covid-secure Time Trials. So instead we are going virtual. All you have to do is run a 5K on the eligible dates, and tell us your time. We’ll do the rest.

The following results show just the people who have done 2 or more Time Trials, and could achieve the minimum of 3 of they do the final TT on Dec 3rd. People who have only done 2 TT’s won’t have a score on the ‘best 3’ results. They will show a score of 0 and will be at the bottom of the table, but that doesn’t mean they can’t still win!
