Gade Valley Harriers Club League – 2017/18


Scoring System

5 points for running in a race….plus
20 points for 1st place
19 points for 2nd place….down to
1 point for 19th place

12 races to count. Should you run all 12 plus a marathon you will only score for 12 runs and your lowest result will be discard whether this a monthly fixture of the marathon.

There will be 3 league tables:

  • Mens
  • Ladies
  • Age-graded (this compares your result against the world leading time for your age & gender and gives you a percentage of that time. It is this percentage that determines your position in the race for this table. This allows fair comparison of all)


  1. All league races must be entered as a member of Gade Valley Harriers and displayed as such on the results.
  2. To score any points the runner must complete the race.
  3. All times will be based on chip time, where available.
  4. In the event that two runners share the exact time or percentage their points will be shared (e.g. if equal 1st both would score 24.5 points then next would be 3rd with 23 points).
  5. In the event of a tie in a league table at the end of the season, a countback system will be used as follows until a winner is established: Number of 1st place finishes in any league race, Number of 2nd place finishes in any league race etc. If this fails to establish a winner then head to head results on races the tied runners have all competed in will be compared. If there is still no clear winner then a coin toss will be undertaken!
  6. The league organiser will confirm the dates of any unconfirmed fixtures a soon as possible and inform participants accordingly.
  7. The league organiser reserves the right to alter league fixtures at a minimum of 3 months’ notice, but only in the case of unforeseen circumstances which would have a detrimental effect on the race’s status in the league.
