I know that a lot of you have been looking forward to this announcement with nervous excitement – so here it is, the 2019 EMAC Road Runners championship.
The races included are listed below and each will serve as the championship event with medals awarded (apart from Leigh on sea 10K)
Kimbolton 1/2 marathon 18th August – https://nicetrievents.com/events/kimbolton-half-marathon/
Leigh on Sea 10k 20th October – (not the championship event) – https://www.active.com/leigh-on-sea-essex/running/distance-running/loss-10k-2019
Fenland 10 mile 27th October – http://www.fenlandrunningclub.co.uk/fen-10/
Wolverton 5 mile 24th November – TBC
Waterside 10k (Grafham) 15th December – https://nicetrievents.com/events/waterside-10k-road-race-2019/
When entering the events (when they go live) please tick the EMAC championship box or email/message me to make sure your included in the scoring – any questions or queries, please let me know.
The scoring is based on age grading again and the best 3 from 5 results will count to the overall score. This should allow more of you to compete for the overall trophy as we only had a handful of athletes that ran 3 or more races last year. Will any of you challenge Jonathan Haynes – last years overall winner or Paul Mingay’s stunning 90% + score at Kimbolton last year?
We also have the organiser of the Peterborough Marathon happy for us to use their event next year (2020), so we will be up to 6 races then and are very close to adding a 5k race to add to the series – so we will have a full set of distances for 2020!
Looking forward to seeing you all in person at Kimbolton and if you have any questions, don’t be afraid to get in touch.
