Championships

These are the 2022 championship races. Results from 2019, 2018, 2017, 2016, 2015, 2014, 2013, 2012, 2011 and 2010 are in the archive. 2020 didn’t happen, and 2021 was all a bit hazy. Your best 5 races (from 12) count, and must include at least one long, one medium and one short. There are three trophies - overall best man, best lady and the best on handicap. If you went at 68.3% of the winner's speed you score 68 points. Handicap scores are calculated to create a level competition despite differences of age and gender: Women get a 13% allowance. All runners between 40 and 60 get a 1% per year allowance to allow for age: eg a 40 yr old's scratch score is multiplied by 1.01, a 48 year old's scratch score is multiplied by 1.09. In your 60s a 2% per year allowance is made. in your early 70s 3% per year, late 70s 4% per year etc to reflect the fact that age-decline accelerates.
