Sperrin Harriers will once again host their Winter League Trail Series which is now into its fourth year. Set in three venues that are perfect for runners of all abilities the series, which began as a small affair, has grown into one of Northern Irelands premier trail race series attracting some of the provinces top runners.
Just like last year a total of 6 events are planned; one 5k, one 10 mile, two 10k's & two 5 mile races however how the winners are declared has changed and is now based on finish places. The athletes will be awarded points following each race and ranked. The rankings are calculated using the following criteria :
1. After each race, the athletes are ranked according to finish position
2. First home gets 1 point, the next home gets 2 and so on
3. At the end of all six races, the number of points from each runner’s best five races are added together.
4. Overall, the athlete with the lowest score wins and is awarded the Sperrin Harriers Winter League Trail Series Prize.
Category winners will be calculated in the same way, except that Category Place will be used instead of Overall Place.
Following three years of using the lowest cumulative time system over three race distances the club have decided to shake the series up and use an alternative system to help keep the series competitive and athletes interested.
Entry to each race is £3 affiliated & £4 un-affiliated with tea, coffee & refreshments being served to all athletes taking part. Registrations which only has to be completed once takes place prior to each event from 11am with all races starting at 12pm.
