Mercia Club Champs Races 2024

Below is a list of events to be included in the Mercia FR Championship 2024. There are 31 events in all, 16 home races, 15 away, 15 short, 10 medium and 6 long events.

Where possible, there is included information about entries for the various events. For more information, also about locations, race specifics etc, it is strongly recommend you consult the FRA and WFRA 2024 race calenders, their respective websites - and and social media.

Qualifying criteria:

U18 Best 4 short races
U23, Open, V40 and V50 5 best races to count which must include at least one from each distance and one away race.
V60 Best 5 races, at least one short, one medium and one away (no requirement for a long race to be included).
V70 Best 3 races any distance home or away.


In any qualifying race, the finishing times of the top 5 runners (regardless of gender, age or club allegiance) will be added together and divided by 5 to produce an average time. All Mercia FR members will have their own finishing times measured against this average in terms of a percentage equivalent. The percentage figure will be the recorded score for that particular race.

Scores for each Mercia FR member in eligible races will be entered into a spreadsheet table and calculated to produce a current total and ranking within the championship. Following the final race of the championship, the 5 best scores for any individual, assuming they have met the qualifying criteria, will be added up to produce a final total and so determine final rankings and category winners.

In the event of a tie in any age category, places in the final table will be decided on a head-to-head basis, i.e. who has been the higher finisher on most occasions when the 2 (or more) tied runners have competed in the same races.


All races, whether home or away, require volunteer help to ensure they take place. If you want to help out with any of the races organised by Mercia FR, whether it be by marshaling or by assisting with race preparation/organisation, please get in touch with the ROs for the respective events. I recommend that all Mercia members should try to volunteer at least one race during the year.

Partial results will be posted periodically throughout the year to show progress in the championship as events take place.
