This competition was introduced in 2006 to encourage club members to discover there is more to running than roadwork alone. The purpose of the All Rounder Competition (ARC) is to recognise those club members who have performed well against their peers throughout the calendar year (i.e. 1st January to 31st December).
To reflect the All-Rounder title, the competition is set across different distances and event types including road, hill and cross country, trail and multi-terrain. Each present their own set of challenges ensuring that the award winners can truly claim to be all-rounders.
For 2020, the following guidelines will apply to identify which events fall into each category, all of which will be included in the three GP series:
- “Road” will consist of those races listed in the Road GP;
- “Off -Road” will consist of those races listed in the Off-Road/Mu;ti-Terrain GP;
- “Hill” will consist those races listed in the Hill GP.
To qualify for the ARC, members must complete at least one event within each of the above classifications. However, to earn maximum points, members will need to complete two events in each classification, generally a shorter race and a longer race as outlined in the ARC rules and/or indicated in the GP event listings.
Further information on age categories, scoring etc. are detailed in the ARC Rules. Please speak to Phil Smithard, ARC Convenor, if you have any queries about the ARC.
