As for the time being the league has been put on hold for now, we are not encouraging anyone to enter anything that is still open, I hope you all agree under the extreme circumstances we find ourselves in, this is not a priority, the safety of everyone is though.
If you are running in groups NO MORE than 4 at 1 metre apart, as stated in previous correspondence.
Domestic League Results
Collating results from Domestic League races and maintaining the Domestic League is the responsibility of Andy Church.
After each Domestic League race, he will check the official results on the internet, and double check his findings with results published in the Newsletter every week, before updating the League standings. If results are missed, for whatever reason, it is a fiddly, time-consuming process to go back over the results and readjust.
In order to try and make Andys task easier, the following procedures will apply with effect from Monday 18th June 2018.
If your result/time does not appear in the weekly Newsletter, it is your responsibility to notify Andy Church, Domestic League Co-ordinator of your result/time. He may well have already got it through the official results, but as points are at stake, it is worth making sure.
Andy gets all his information from either race results or information provided to the NL editor. He will not be expected to trawl the internet for results beyond what is mentioned above, nor will he enter into an e-dialogue with the NL editor.
Failure to do this within one week of race completion, means you will forfeit any potential League points, and these will not be reinstated retrospectively as too much work is involved.
We think that this is a fair approach to ensure the accuracy and integrity of the Domestic league.

How does it work /2020 League Rules
PLEASE READ AND UNDERSTAND TO AVOID CONFUSION LATER IN THE YEAR.
Complete eight races during the race calendar year, BUT only four to count in each half of calendar year, SO you can do more races and disregard your lower scores………….
Up to 8 races will count towards your championship total points BUT only up to 4 races in either half of the calendar year.
If you exceed 4 qualifying races in either or both half-years, you will still benefit by being able to “discard” your weaker scores from that half where excess races completed
Points will run from 25 for first roadrunner (M and F), down to 1 point minimum (multiple runners will get one point if more than 25 roadrunners score ).
Race calendar year runs 1st January to 15th June and 16th June to 31st October.
Complete six races to be eligible for prizes……if no-one else has completed eight races in your age category.
All league races will adhere to the rules of the EA association
Only fully paid-up, WRR first claim members and EA paid up are eligible to score points
All league races will fall under the auspices of England Athletics and their rules of competition
Running a race while registered under a different runner’s name will score NO points. Most race organisers will change the name if you notify them in advance
Memento to all league finishers who complete eight races, not decided what yet.
Only paid-up, WRR first claim members are eligible to score points
You must wear the NEW Witney RR club vest/ t-shirt, NOT training tops
Overall male and female winners will not be eligible for age category prizes.
Times and positions from official race results will always be used. Where applicable this will be chip times rather than gun times.
The Championship co-ordinator may substitute races in the event of cancellations, date changes, date clashes etc
It is the runners’ responsibility to check dates & enter races in good time. No concessions will be made if entry limits prevent anyone running.
F THERE IS AN OVERALL OR AGE GROUP TIE, IT WILL BE DETERMINED AS IN THE EXAMPLE BELOW:
Order of tie-break:
The combined total best points obtained by the person up to and including the next three best scores in league races will be used, i.e a total of 11 races.
Athlete A: 8 races 200 points, then has another 4 races completed scoring 16,12,10, 9………….discard 9, so has 38 points + 200 = 238
Athlete B: 8 races 200 points, then has another 3 races completed scoring 22,18,10……..so has 50 points (with no discard) + 200 = 250
Athlete C: 8 races 200 points, then has another 2 races complete scoring 24,21….so has 45 points (has not completed a 3rd race) + 200 = 245
Athlete D: 8 races 200 points, then has another 1 race complete scoring 25….so has 25 points (has not completed a 2rd or 3 rd race) + 200 = 225
Athlete E: 8 races 200 points, no further races = 200 points
So they would finish
1ST = B
2nd = C
3rd = A
4th = D
5th = E
If there is still a tie, then the winner will be the one who has won most head to head at competing races.
Any questions or concerns please do not hesitate to contact me, firstname.lastname@example.org
The league race team, will come up with a list of races, based on supporting local clubs, price, distance from Witney, and what WRR have recommended.
