The Burnham Joggers Club Championship is a keenly contested league based on selected events over the Burnham Joggers Club year. The prize ceremony is held at the Annual Dinner Dance and Awards Ceremony.
Events cover a range of distances and surfaces, from a mile in the Beeches to your best marathon time at any event. Many are open events organised by other local clubs. Points are awarded based on your place amongst other Burnham Joggers competing with one point for first etc.
Your best 7 races count and the person with the fewest points wins. The full rules can be found at the top Club Championship Results spreadsheet.
Runners should wear club tops (except marathons) and must be entered as a Burnham Jogger.
Many new members haven’t ran competitive races before and the club championship is a great way to get involved in the club and track your progress.
You agree that we may publish your Personal Information as part of the results of the Event and may pass such information to the governing body or any affiliated organisation for the purpose of insurance, licences or for publishing results either for the event alone or combined with or compared to other events. Results may include (but not be limited to) name, any club affiliation, race times, occupation and age category.
Club Championship Update – May 2021
Copy of e-mail sent 5th May 2021
I hope you are all keeping safe and well and enjoying running back with the Club and friends.
The Committee are continuing to work hard behind the scenes to get things back to normal as quickly and safely as possible and within restrictions.
Paul Sasada has been looking at our Club Championship fixtures to enable us to get this up and running again.
As previously advised, the current 2020 Club Championship will finish on 31st May 2021. There were 8 races (Datchet XC, Bracknell XC, Upton Court parkrun, Wokingham Half Marathon, ENVA, SJ September, SJ October and any actual or Virtual Marathon). The winners will be calculated based on completion of 5 out of 8 races.
As a one off this year and to hopefully draw a line under COVID, we will be holding a summer awards event on Saturday 10th July at the Bowls Club. This will be a less formal event than normal (but no less fun!) where we will award the Club Championship and some Lockdown Legends Awards. These will be to members (who in the view of the Committee) kept us motivated and Burnham Joggers going through lockdown.
We then run the next Club Championship till October 31st 2022 with our annual event in November 2022 in its normal and full format.
Paul has put together the following proposal for June 2021 to October 2022.
He has used our historic events, looked at the 2021 Summer 5K schedule (a bit different to normal) and added both Marlow Half and Mapledurham Half for November 2021.
He has also added a second marathon—so this means one to be run in 2021 and the other in 2022.
In total this gives us 27 events over the period. Given that we ask for 7 events out of a possible 17 for a normal year – a straight pro rata means 12 events need to be run in order to qualify to enter.
Please note that we may have late changes / cancellations from the organisers based on Covid etc—but we wanted to get this out to you so hopefully you can start booking and filling up those rather bleak diaries.
