Off Road Championship

2020 fell and trail races Championship Fixtures

Current standings after 1 event Current Standings.

The Championship includes 10 trail races and 10 fell races. To qualify participants must do:

  • Any 3 trail races
  • At least 1 Interclub fell race
  • Any other 2 fell races

As there are a lot of races, and just 6 required to qualify, The qualification rules are as follows:

  • Lowest point score wins (1 point for first, 2 points second etc)

Obviously, with so many races, competitors may never race head to head. So if points are equal positions will be decided based on runners position in field:

  • Lowest position relative to rest of field ( P-ROF). So you finish 33rd out of 89 runners, your P-ROF would be 33/89 = 0.37. The closer to the winner, the lower the score. And if you are last, your score would be 1. Then the 6 lowest P-ROFs, would be added, with the lowest score winning. This way, the more races you do, the better the chance of getting a lower P-ROF.

Hope that makes sense!
