2023 Combined Championship

The 2023 championship features a mixture of 'local' road, fell & trail races over different distances. 


The competition features 16 events; 11 ‘short’, 3 ‘medium’ and 2 ‘long’ with best scores from up to 6 races to count. There is no minimum number of races and no requirement to do races from each distance category.


This year we are again using a performance-based scoring system dependent on your finishing time relative to the first man & lady. Basically, the closer your time is to the winner’s time the more points you get. Scores for 'medium' & 'long' races will be multiplied by a factor of 1.1 and 1.2 respectively, as an inducement to take part in longer distances.

A more detailed explanation of the scoring can be found here

In addition to the overall men’s and ladies championship winners, there will also be vets (over 40) and supervets (over 50) categories for both men and women.
