Road Running

For basic information on the Berkshire County Road Running Championships, please see the article entitled "who, what, when, where".

My name is Denise and I have been running for about 5 years as a member of Bracknell Forest Runners. 

There will be 4 races of different distance over the calender year. These races can be from anywhere from 5K to a marathon, but not every distance will run every year. As normal medals will be awarded for the first three finishers in each age and gender category, with points also awarded for the overall Championship Trophy which is awarded each Novmeber at the County AGM.

In order to keep this interesting, at least one of the races will be replaced. Having different races and distances each year will hopefully make these Championships more inclusive. The races chosen will either be in Berkshire (or very close to Berkshire).

As a new feature to adult road running, we were invited to participate in a Souther Counties representitive road race in 2018. Its likley these will happen again in 2019, please look out for ad hoc announcements regarding how to put yourself forward for the team.

Entries open on January 1st, please don't e-mail me before then.
