LEEDS RACE SERIES 2013
The Leeds Athletics Network Race Series 2013 is a “grand prix” style series of races including most races organized by Athletics Clubs in Leeds.
There were 21 races in the series, with distances varying from 1 mile to 10 miles, some road, some off-road.
4 parkruns were included, you had the opportunity at each to record your best time over a period of 5 designated weeks (see calendar)
The 2013 Series was open to everyone and is free to enter (other than you need to pay the entry fee for each race!). Registration closed on 30 September 2013.
Note that we require name, address, club (if applicable) and date of birth. Details will not be disclosed to any third party.
We prefer that you supply an email address so that we are able to notify you of anything relevant to the Race Series. We’d also like to use this to notify you of anything else of interest in the Leeds Athletics Network. You may opt out at any time.
Overall series category placings are decided according to the best 8 race scores (i.e. approximately half of the events). Age groups are according to the age at the start of the year 1 January.
Categories are overall man, overall woman, and men and women in 5 year categories 15-19, 20-24, 25-29, 30-34, etc …
Scoring system. In each race,
The cut-off date for entries to the 2013 Series was 30 September. If a runner has completed a race or races in the Series prior to entering the Series, they will get points calculated retrospectively. The consequence is that runners already in the Series may see their points go down during the year to 30 Sept as more runners enter the Series, but after 1 October, their points are secure. (Different from 2012)
You don’t have to enter 8 races to take part – run as many as you can and see how you compare with other runners in your age-group!
We’ll be awarding little trophies to the overall male & female winners and the winners in each age-group providing they have run at least 8 races. If the winner of a group is from outside Leeds, we will also award a trophy to the best-placed Leeds runner in the group providing they have run at least 8 races. (New for 2013)
All results / league tables will be published on the Leeds Athletics Network website. We may be setting up a Facebook page available to open to all participants (or maybe next year). We may also be set up an inter-club competition (or maybe next year).
Leeds Race Series and Leeds Junior Race Series are organised by and supported by clubs in the Leeds Athletics Network.
