The first ever club championship 2017/18
Our first Club Championship will run in line with our membership year from 1 April 2017 to 31 March 2018. The championship is a series of events of different distance and terrain designed to test and challenge you, while competing with your fellow Pumas and representing the club.
There will be three different trophies up for grabs as part of the championship and there will be male and female versions of each one.
The trophies are:
Club Grand Prix – Pumas need to enter 6 races to qualify. The Puma achieving the highest average score wins the competition.
Club Championship – the Puma accumulating the most points in the season wins.
Helen Silson Memorial Trophy – the Puma achieving the best improvement in their 10K times during a season. This trophy is in memory of one of our members Helen, who sadly passed away in 2016.
Trophies will be awarded at an event in April each year. More details about this nearer the time!
You can read up on all the finer details on our rules page.
