SJ Club Challenge
If you would like to compete in the SJ Club Challenge for 2019/2020 then please complete this form for the month of March.
The aim of this challenge is to:
celebrate the participation of people in races
thank people for volunteering at club events and external events
encourage people to participate in club events, lead runs, help out at events and compete in relays.
I am going to outline below how the club challenge will work as well as how administration of the challenge will take place:
One point races
Every race that you do is worth 1 point. This is any race that you have entered on your own, for example Woodland 5, Yateley road races, London marathon, parkrun etc. Any race of any distance counts – a park run is worth the same amount as a 100 miler.
One point volunteering
Any race that you volunteer at is also worth 1 point. If you volunteer at a parkrun rather than run you have gained 1 point.
5 point races:
Any race that you have entered through the club is a 5 point race. This is all the relays and cross countries and any other race that goes out via the Event team or Cross Country Secretary. Please note that Endure will only count if you are doing this through the club rather than your own teams. Yateley road races will not count as a club race and so will only be worth 1 point (see (1) above).
5 point volunteering
If you volunteer at Yateley road race, our home cross country, lead a club run or help out at a club event (canal run) then you can award yourself 5 points. This includes if you volunteer first and then race or race and then volunteer.
In the first couple of days on each month you will be sent a link to a google form. You will be asked to submit:
Your total points for the month
Your total points for the year to date.
It is your responsibility to complete the form as well as ensure that you are being honest in your points total. You will NOT be asked to prove which races you did at any point and we will be taking your word as gospel! You will be given 1 week to complete the form and then results will be published via facebook and the club blog. The results will show totals of each month as well as totals for the year to date. The first month of the challenge will be April and this year’s challenge will run from April to February (11 months) but in future years it will be 12 months. This means the first form will be in your in boxes in the first week in May and first set of results issued in the second week in May.
The following Milestones will be recognised as you collect points:
At the SJ Ball in March each year certificates will be given out to people for the largest award they have got. For example, if you have collected 20 points in the year you will be awarded an ‘Iron certificate’ but if you have collected 160 points you will be awarded a ‘Gold certificate’
