Club Champs 2023
Club Championship 2023 is GO!
Latest Standings - 31st July 2023
Six counters in now and only three to go (including two more long races), after Pen y fan and Four fans, two absolute classics of Welsh fell running.
Female category - Pen y fan saw Bethan strengthen her lead at the top, with Emma still in second place and Daniela leap-frogging the field into third place, just one point ahead of Debbie.
Open category - Pen y fan saw Wyndham also strengthen his lead at the top, with Tom Turner replacing Tom Mollekin in second place and gain current bragging rights for Top Tom. A strong showing from Brett also puts him in contention in fourth place. Paul Tucker was the only Mynydd Du entry at Four fans (shame) but justifiably walks away with the full 20 club championship points and zooms up the leaderboard.
Here are the basics...
Local races to keep our carbon footprint down and to support local ROs
3x Short 3x Medium 3x Long Races - Mixture of Beacons and Black Mountains races
Up to 4 counters to score (20-1 points for the first twenty Mynydd Du finishers)
Extra challenges (for bonus points) to keep it interesting throughout the year (details to follow below)
Ladies and Open categories
Fabulous bespoke prizes up for grabs! 1st, 2nd and 3rd place in each category will receive a bespoke Mynydd du buff!
Here are the races...
Spiffy Prizes for 1st, 2nd & 3rd places in Open and Ladies categories
So for example...
Running four of the counting races, say Tour of Torpantau, Cribyn, Pen y fan and Four fans could give you a maximum of 80 points (20 points x 4 races).
If you did one of the bonus point challenges you could get another 10 points for being the 1st place Mynydd Du runner
If you completed Brecon Beacons instead of the Cribyn Race you would have a Short, Medium and Long counter and would therefore get 5 extra bonus points
If you completed all eight counters you would get 1 extra point per race (4 extra points) and an extra bonus 3 points for completing all counting races.
If you broke the course record of one of the Races, say Black Mountains ;) then you would get an extra 10 points.
