The HRR XC Championships are held annually. In the 2021-22 season, points can be obtained when competing in the five races of the Oxford Mail XC League, the five races of the Chiltern XC League, the Berks, Bucks and Oxon XC Championships race, the Southern XC Championships race and the National XC Championships race. Details of these races are in the HRR Events Diary. In previous years the Berks, Bucks and Oxon XC Championships race has also been included but it did not take place this season and its future is in doubt. The third OXL fixture, which should have taken place on 9 January, was cancelled.
You can see the points you've scored in the 2021-22 spreadsheet.
The scoring system for the 2021-22 season is the same as that used for the previous seasons:
- Five points are obtained for each of the first 8 races you run in any of the 12 races.
- Points are also obtained for your 6 best positions relative to other HRR runners in your age category (25 points for the first runner in your age category, 24 points for the second, etc.).
- The age categories are SM, VM40, VM50, VM60, SL, VL35, VL45 and VL55. Runners who are U20 will be classified as SM/SL, VM70 as VM60 and VL65 as VL55. Runners who are VM70 or VL65 are marked as such within these categories. The qualification date for all age categories is September 1st 2021.
- Second-claim members are not eligible for the HRR XC Championships.
At the end of the season, prizes will be awarded in each age category to the first three runners that have finished in at least five races. There is a trophy for first place, a medal for 2nd and a medal for 3rd. Note: even if a runner has obtained more points than someone else in their age category, they will not be eligible for a prize unless they have finished in at least five races.
