We headed into 2020 with plans (see below!) for our best ever club championship – 16 varied events across the year – but of course things came crashing to a halt in March after just three events had been completed. Instead we organised our hugely successful virtual championship and with that now complete, we have taken the decision to award our 2020 Club Championships based on the results of those successful Virtual events instead. So (drum roll…) here are your 2020 CLUB CHAMPIONSHIP WINNERS!
Female Senior (18-39) Mhairi Sellar
Female Vet (40+) Nicola Carter
Male Senior (18-39) James Ireland
Male Veteran (40+) John Hamilton
Congratulations to this year’s winners, who will receive their awards during our Online Awards Night on 30th January.

The 2020 Ben Campbell Club Championship
For 2020 we believe we have the widest selection of events so far and some different experiences available to our Striders. As in previous years, there are well-established ‘regulars’ mixed with new races. Having listened to feedback from members, the 2020 championship should require less travel, is spread more evenly across the months and is cheaper to enter. Your best 7 scores will count again, but we have expanded the choice of events from 15 to 16. We’ve also included rounds from the PECO and HDSRL series which many of our Striders will already be attending. Several races are already open for entries!
