We will be holding a club championship for the 22/23 affiliation year with prizes for the top 3 male and top 3 female finishers awarded at our end of year party next April 2023! We will also have a prize for the most improved runner, comparing finishing times from Bolton Parkrun in April 22 with finishing times in March 23.
For each of the events listed below the top 30 finishers will be awarded points descending from 50 ie. 50 points for first place, 49 points for second place, 48 points for third place etc. If there are more than 30 people taking part everyone else will be given 20 points for participating.
During these difficult times we have tried to make the championship as cheap and accessible as possible! It’s also not necessarily the fastest runners that will win. The more events you take part in, the more points you will gain!
