Club Championship in Tight Race at Mid-point of 2002

As of the end of August, with five more local meets still to run, Dugalic Dragovan and Kristijonas Sabataitis lead the Men's Championship field while Boglarka Gyofi and Beverly Hartline lead the Women's Championship Series.

But since only the best six races count toward the Championship score, other Club members with fewer races could still rise in the stand-ings and overtake these leaders. With the wet, cold Spring experienced in the Chicago area, attendance was light at many meets. So many members have five more races to add to their point totals.

Marie Larsson totes up the Club Championship after each local meet and posts the updated results. If you do not see your name, the chances are that you either did not register for the Championships or keep your Club membership up to date.

As of 2002, the new rules for the Championship series are:

  • To be eligible, you have to register to be eligible by filling out a form.
  • The championship covers the entire calendar year, but only the top six finishes for each competitor will be totaled.
  • You must be a "member in good standing." Points accumulate from the day you pay your dues and register for the championship.
  • Only registered competitors may accumulate points. At a given event, the highest-ranking registrant gets 10 points, the second-highest ranking registrant gets 9 points, etc. So, someone may score 10 points even if they were ranked second or third for the day (behind nonmembers, for example).
  • The A-meet is not included in the championship.
  • Juniors (under 21) will compete on orange courses.
  • Females will compete on green courses.
  • Men will compete on red courses.
  • You must run as an individual.
  • If two or more runners end up with the same points at year end, ties will be broken by counting the most wins (10), second-place finishes (9), etc.
