Club Team Event 2020

Alert Alert New running Competitions for Marple Runners


This year we are going to introduce two new events to the club alongside the Club Championships.



The 1st event we are introducing is a team event

The reasoning behind this event is to bring runners of all abilities together as a team. The more teams the better. Hopefully we will get enough interest to run the event starting in April.

We are looking for runners from all six divisions to take part.


Each team will consist of six members - one person from each division, we will endeavour to have 3 men and 3 ladies per team but may have randomly allocated team members dependant on interest. All teams will be of equal ability or as close as possible by age grading.


The competition will be over five different events throughout the year.

The events are all shorter side of race lengths:

  • Club time trial ## Best time over both
  • Fletcher moss park run ## Best time over month
  • Sale sizzler ## Best time over series
  • Woodbank park run ##Best time over month
  • 1St X country event


These events are either free or minimal cost to enter.

This event will only be contested for 1st and 2nd place

Do not worry if you are unable of attend one of the events you will still get a score so it won’t stop your team from potentially winning; the score you will receive will be equal to your lowest score for one of the runs you have entered.

There will shortly be an event page on facebook where you can let your interest be known or if you are not on facebook, contact either team captains: Darren or Katrina who will pass your name on to me and we will do the draw for teams last week of March.



The Individual competition will be contested by all 6 divisions separately 3 Men’s divisions and 3 Ladies’ divisions.

The event will only be contested for 1st and 2nd places
