Running Club

Club League

The club runs a competition to encourage its members to enter races in the area. Several races are new this year; fresh challenges in different locations add interest and variety. There are plenty of other events for picking-up PBs and prizes, nothing stops you running anywhere. We've tried, where possible, to pick races with lower entry fees, along with a calendar of events aimed at improving your fitness. Prizes are presented at the end of the year.

How the points are awarded

The rules: 
1) To earn points in any race you have to wear a York Acorn R.C. vest/shirt. 
2) You earn points as follows: 
a) Three Points for completing a race* and sending the results and report to the Newsletter Editor 
b) Completing a club series race listed below, points will be awarded 20 points for first runner to finish, 19 points for the second..etc.. 

*Note this excludes the York Road Race League (YRRL) - 10km road race series – that takes place in the summer and has its own separate club competition.
