Rules

  • You can run from home or at a location of your choosing; social distancing rules permitting
  • Time should be recorded on Strava [as this has a GAP facility to calculate a flat route time from a hilly course]. Net downhill routes will be penalised! In the absence of Strava, runners can submit a photograph of their running watch / Garmin Connect with time & distance recorded and we will require the details of elevation gain & loss please
  • Please try to flag the start and end of the distance on the run. Ideally the run would be a single event on Strava, so we can accurately get your time.
  • Points are awarded on fastest time over distance after GAP has been applied
  • Your age on Jan 1st 2020 will be used to calculate results
  • First & Second Claim Members are equally eligible for the Virtual Club Championship
  • You have all the 7 days to compete in the race for that week

Scoring

  • The scoring for Men’s and Ladies results will be separate
  • 30 points will be awarded to the first male finisher and to the 1st female, irrespective of how many members take part in a given race
  • Each finisher that follows will receive 1 point less, so 2nd place will get 29 points, 3rd place will get 28 points and so on
  • If more than 30 members compete, each person after the 30th runner will be awarded a single point
  • Whilst you are free to run every race, only your top 6 qualifying races will count towards the Championship

Results

With the best intentions we tried to use Strava's GAP facility. Unfortunately they do not allow access to this. So we have come up with our own method to follow the GAP.

A few points on how we got to the final time.

  • Strava sends the run in metres. You'll see variances in the initial distance.
    For those who lap in miles, even though the watch states 0.62miles (1km), when uploaded this falls short by a few metres.
    Some of those who thought they ran 1km, ran over a few metres.
    So the first thing to do was to take the metres per second and smooth everyone out (plus or minus time) to an even KM.
  • Once that was done we've took the elevation (positive or negative) and applied a general rule per X metres to give time bonuses / deductions

The table has been left open for transparency, showing what the run was clocked at (in distance and time) and the adjustments along the way to get to the final time. If there are any discrepencies, be nice, drop me an email at webmaster@harrogate-harriers.co.uk.

For the sake of integrity, I have double checked close results to make sure the order of Strava GAP is consistent with the website and will continue to do so.

Connect to Strava

Moving forward for longer distances, we'd like the website to connect with your Strava to get more information about the run, mainly ascent and descent, to make it as fair as possible.

In order to do this, please follow the link below. This will allow the website to connect. You will only need to do this once. We respect your privacy, so only public runs will be available and the website will not create a run or edit any per of your run, simply read the data recorded.
