Dorset Road Race League 2019
We always welcome runners of all standards to represent us in the Dorset Road Race League (DRRL). The competition comprises a series of 12 races of various distances at different venues across the county throughout the year. Each race includes separate competitions for men and women as well as club teams. In 2019 we're competing in the first division of the men's competition and second division for the ladies.
At each race, the first four men home and first three ladies count towards the respective team places. Points are awarded in line with finishing positions (i.e. first place = one point; second place = two points). The runner with the fewest points over their best seven races is the winner; after seven races those who have completed six races (then five, etc.) are taken into account to establish a position for all who have taken part in any of the races.There's no limit to the number of runners from each club that can enter each race.
At the end of the season, trophies are awarded to the top two teams in each division and the top team from the second division is promoted. Individual prizes are awarded to the top male and female runners in each category, the top male and female runner from each club (subject to completing a minimum of seven races) and any runner that competes in every race (known as the Fidelity Award), so there's plenty to compete for.
It's great to get a good club turnout in every race and boost our league positions. Your results will make a difference wherever you finish!
