Junior Championship

The Junior Championship is Red Rose’s competition for members under 16. All first claim club members under the age of 16 are eligible to compete. The competition involves existing open races that are organised by outside authorities. These races may not be free to enter and you are expected to pay your own entry fees. Competitors must conform with the entry requirements of each race. All members competing in a Junior Championship event must wear either an official Red Rose Road Runners running top, or a baseball cap bearing the Red Rose logo or a garment bearing an official Red Rose sew on badge affixed to the front of the garment.  Any member not wearing club kit will be counted as last placed. For further information, see the full rules.

Age Categories

The age categories are based on the competitor’s age on the 1st January of the competition year.  The categories are U16, U14, U12 and U10

Results

In each gender age category the 1st Red Rose finisher will be awarded 10 points, the 2nd Red Rose 9 points and so forth. The 10th and and subsequent finishers will be awarded 1 point. There is no limit to the number of members who may score points in any race. Remember: you need at least one Cuerden and one Avenham parkrun in the year.
