Ormeau Runners Events Calendar and Club Championship 2018
What is it?
A calendar of running events, challengers, and social events. We have added in an extra fun factor and opened up our very own Ormeau Runners Club Championships. The purpose is to inform members on events for the year while encouraging Ormeau Runners to participate in races and social events while earning points while you run and volunteer.
The club championship is based solely on participation and irrelevant of speed and finish positions.
There is also a big focus on free runs and social events. We also wanted to include a choice each Month to suit everyone’s distances and events. Use the calendar to save dates and plan ahead :)
What’s up for Grabs ?
The King or Queen of Ormeau Runners will win Running Goodies at our Annual Christmas Party Plus the Title of King or Queen of Ormeau Runners for the Next Year.
Who can enter?
The Ormeau Runners Calendar and Members Championship is open to all Members, Everyone has Equal Opportunity to partake and earn points. The table will run from January to December.
How are points Scored?
The points are irrelevant of pace and points are accumulated in participating in Runs , Races, Challenges & Social Events and Volunteering. Extra points will be given based on those races that Ormeau Runners picked as their top runs to attend for 2018.
Points can only be earned on events that have previously been stipulated as part of the Club Championship. Points must be claimed within 1 Month or they will be lost.
How do I Claim my points?
Make sure you lets us know when you partake in any stipulated events, don’t take it for granted we know. A simple Facebook post in the member’s page would suffice, that way we can check the results for that race or run and allocate you your points, well take an attendance register at Ormeau runners social events and challenges and allocate points. Parkrun points will be allocated from the Ormeau Runners parkrun club consolidated run reports.
How is a King or Queen decided?
Its easy the person who has accumulated the most points across all events at the end of the year is Crowned the club King or Queen for that year.
Extra points will be given for Official OR`s Social Runs, Challenges, Events and pop up events.
Run parkrun = 1 pts (Up to a Maximum of 20 points per Year)
Volunteer parkrun = 2 pts (Up to a Maximum of 30 points per Year)
**To claim parkrun point`s participant must register Ormeau Runners as their parkrun club, a total of a possible 50 parkrun points are available. If participants do not register Ormeau Runners as their parkrun club, the responsibility sits with the participant to inform the organisers that they wish to claim parkrun points, providing full information.**
The parkrun flash mob events are additional points that can be earned.
OR`s will produce a Monthly Race Poll on our Members Facebook page, the purpose of the poll is to a low members the option to vote in an additional race for each month that will be added into the OR`s Run Calendar and Club Championship.
