Ben Campbell Club Championship

Ben Campbell CC22

After a successful return to a more ‘normal’ championship in 2021, it’s full steam ahead for another varied and enjoyable club championship in 2022!

We’ve got 16 diverse events to challenge and entertain you, which will see us race on road, off road, on the flat, on hills and across a range of distances up to half-marathons! There are six interesting events which are new to the championship and so they might be new to you too! We have included a number of free events (such as our own time-trial and some parkruns) along with races from other series which the club already take part in – such as PECO XC. As before, you can select seven (or more) events to compete at across the year. There is no need to ‘enter’ the championship – just enter any (or all!) of the listed events and we’ll pick up your result. Do make sure that you list ‘Knaresborough Striders’ as your club though!
