Jan 2023 Results - Cross Flatts

Parkrun League 2023

This is open to all members of Morley Running Club, but to be eligible you MUST have Morley Running Club as your official club on the parkrun website... not Morley Runners, or any other ones... if you aren't sure which club you are attached to on there, check!! And yes, sadly this means that our friends who are Lakers, Pudsey Pacers, Wakefield Tri etc aren't eligible - but are still very welcome to join in for fun!!

Every month, there will be one local parkrun that is the nominated club parkrun for that month. The next one will be SATURDAY 11th FEBRUARY at WAKEFIELD THORNES!!! That means there will be 12 league runs over the year, a slight change to 2022 in that there will be no minimum number needed to have been run to be in with a chance of winning, however it will still be your best 9 results that will be used. Run 10 best 9 count, run 8 all 8 count.

The points will be awarded using the age graded scores on the parkrun website, so it is not down to just time... so everyone has a chance!!

 

Following feedback from the members there will be a change to how the scoring is done.  Participants will be ranked based on their age graded %.  1st place, will get 50 points, 2nd place 49 and so on.  50th and below, if we get that many, will each receive 1 point.  Why the change? It rewards commitment, if, as happened in the recent series, only 11 people turn up then those 11 will now be rewarded for showing up by scoring very well irrespective of their age grading.  It allows for a bit more competition, your performance directly impacts the score of another runner, unlike 2022 where two runners with differing % would get the same points, this now wont be the case.

The PB points have also been changed, the first run of the series will be at Cross Flatts, we will record your time and ask that you then return to Cross Flatts at some point in December, except the 2nd, and try and beat that time, if you do you get 25 points.  Why have we done this?  Feedback suggested that a change was needed regarding the PB points and this was the option we decided on.  It may also help keep some focused through the year by giving them a benchmark to aim for.  Anyone volunteering at one of the below events and not running will be awarded 25 points.
