Summer Series 2020

It’s time to accept that none of the races originally chosen for this year’s series are going to take place so it’s time to launch a smaller, virtual version. This will initially consist of 8 races but may be expanded if some more appropriate events crop up in July.

1) 11-13th England Athletics Virtual 5k Road Running Championships. Entries open now here

2) July 18-19th HAC/Thames Valley Harriers virtual 10k (awaiting final confirmation from TVH but this should be a team competition between the 2 clubs with individual scoring for the Summer Series) Entries now open here

3) July 25th (not)parkrun

4) August 2nd Dash For Fitness virtual 10k

5) August 8th (not)parkrun

6) August 13th 5k Training Race

7) August 22/23rd Gosunder Handicap Trophy

8) September 10th 5k Training Race

League tables for Men and Women as usual, scoring as follows

-For all events you will score 5 points for taking part and finishing

-For all events other than (non)parkruns and the Gosunder the quickest male and female HAC/DFF athletes across the line will each earn another 20 points, second 19 and so on

-(not)parkruns are to be scored based on age grading with the highest male and female age gradings scoring 20 points, 2nd highest 19 points and so on

-The Gosunder will be run on a fixed course, yet to be determined. Finishing positions and scoring will be based on the total of your finish time plus handicap

Your overall score for the summer series will be the total of your 6 highest scoring events. This number may increase if more events are added.
