ukresults/Sweatshop Chorley Challenge Series 2004

This was a new race series, taking place during almost all of 2004. Races at which ukresults has a presence were selected for inclusion in this unique series. All you had to do was complete 8 races out of the 12 selected to be in with a chance of winning a Sweatshop voucher, courtesy of ukresults and Sweatshop Chorley.

Finalised 2005 series events table now available - click this link - general rules and prize list will remain as per 2004 series unless I can get more prizes. This will be 7 from 12 in 2005.

Prize List

The final prize list is below. Everyone who completed the series will receive at least 10 of Sweatshop vouchers. Therefore, anyone who is in the table below and hasn't already provided me with their postal address should please do so as soon as possible. Email me via the contact page with "Challenge" in the subject line.

Update 27th December

Well, that's over and done with - it's been a long year! The final results are now in - just for your information, I've left the 26/12 update in a table below as many positions changed at Clitheroe on the 27th. Some people suffered a bit due to course records for both male and female in this last race, so there are several discarded points etc.! This is a complete listing of the final positions. Anyone missing or with incorrect details MUST contact me - if you stay quiet I will never know. It's up to you to get this right. No corrections after midnight on 31st December.

What do you have to do? - Absolutely nothing! I'll automatically extract your times and calculate your points from any series race in which you finish. No need to register. All I ask is that you follow the rules below and please ensure some consistency when completing your race entry forms. For example, if you enter one race as "Mike A" and another as "Michael A" I'll assume these are two different people taking part - unless you tell me otherwise! Which also reminds me - ladies, if you get married, please let me know your new and old names otherwise I won't know!!

The list of races is set out below. The first race was the Blackburn "Winter Warmer" 10k on 1st February and the last is the Ribble Valley 10k at Clitheroe on 27th December 2004. The races are broadly one per month but some months may have more than one qualifying race (e.g. December 2004). If any race should be cancelled or postponed, a substitute race will be announced (in the same month if possible).

The prize winners will be announced on this site around New Year of 2005 and your prize vouchers will be posted to you shortly thereafter (you'll need to contact me to let me have your address though!!). These have been co-sponsored by ukresults and Sweatshop Chorley and are redeemable at any branch of Sweatshop in the UK either in person or via mail order.

The rules of the challenge are quite simple and are set out at the bottom of this page. Please read them carefully. My decision with regard to prize winners is final and in my absolute discretion. I reserve the right to seek verification of any questioned results before awarding any prize vouchers.

The current prize list may be subject to change in the absolute discretion of ukresults if for any reason there are insufficient entrants/finishers in any of the veteran age categories.

Ribble Valley 10k, Clitheroe

The Rules

1To qualify for a prize in any category (open or vet) a runner needs to record a valid finishing time in his or her selection of at least 8 races out of the 12 listed.
2If there is more than one race at a venue (e.g. a Junior race or Fun Run in addition to the "main" 10k, half marathon or other race) only the "main" race at that venue is a counter for the purposes of this series.
3If a runner records more than 8 finish times, the best 8 (i.e. the 8 lowest points scores) will count.
4If a runner changes category during the year, his/her category will remain as that in which he/she completed his/her first recorded finish in this series.
5Points will be awarded to each runner based on a percentage of the male and (as appropriate) female race winner's time (this will balance out any difference in size of field which might cause unfair results in larger races).
6The male race winner will be awarded 100%. The female race winner will be awarded 100%. All male points will be computed against the male winner's time (and will therefore be higher percentages). All female points will be computed against the female winner's time (and will similarly be higher percentages).
7The person with 8 best finish points who records the lowest total number of points will be the winner in any category.
8If a person wins a prize in the "Open" category, he or she can also win a prize in their own "Vet" category in addition to the "Open" prize (i.e. one person can win two prizes). Also, older age categories do not score in respect of younger age categories (e.g. an M65 who is beating all M55 runners only counts in the M60+ category)
9In the unlikely event of a tie on points, the results for which will be calculated to four decimal points, the runner with the highest number of finishes shall be the winner. If the tied runners have the same number of finishes then any relevant prizes will be added together and shared equally.
10If the series should end and no person has won a prize in a particular category (for example because no-one has completed 8 races in that category) the prize in that category may be awarded to the next finisher in the age category below (e.g. no Male 55, prize may go to 2nd in Male 50) or to such other person as ukresults may, in their absolute discretion, think fit (e.g. spot prizes).
11Any change of club does not affect a person's scoring but it shall be the responsibility of the runner involved in any change of club to ensure that ukresults are notified of such change to ensure that they are correctly identified in the results. Every effort will be made to ensure accuracy - runners are expected to assist by promptly pointing out any errors or omissions in the results of any race and/or the compiled series results.
12These rules may be subject to amendment by ukresults at any time during the series but will only be amended for the express purpose of clarification of any point or matter of dispute which may arise, but the basic method of calculation and award of prizes will not be materially altered at any time.
13Current standings in the series may be published on this site at intervals, subject to pressures of time allowing. Remember, it's not over until the final race!!
