Ben Campbell Club Championship Standings 2019

The championship standings are shown below. For results from each individual race, keep scrolling down. 

Championship Standings

Recent weeks have seen two quieter rounds - Rougemont Chase and Littondale 4 - with a modest amount of movement resulting in the championship. Nonetheless, each category could be won by a range of Striders and we are beginning to see  contenders reaching the magical 'seven rounds after which they can drop scores. Round 10 is next - Sessay Swift - with a greater number of Striders already booked to take part. How will that affect the championship battles...?

Senior Ladies

With no activity in this category during the past two rounds, Claire continues to hold onto her early lead. With six rounds remaining, anyone could still come out on top.

Senior Men

Things have been quiet in this closely-fought category during the last two rounds, so we wait to see whether anyone will pull clear as the season progresses...

Veteran Ladies

Our busiest category continues to deliver a close championship, with Sue and Nicola sharing the spoils in the last two rounds. Nicola continues to lead the way and will now be able to beginning dropping scores, but Sue has now racked-up four first places in four places... championship-winning form perhaps?

Round 1 - Liversedge

Our opening round at Liversedge saw a modest field of 6 Striders taking part in the tough hilly half-marathon, getting the first points on the board for 2019.

Round 2 - Harrogate parkrun

A fantastic turnout of 39 Striders has set the championship alight and also helped to boost the parkrun to a record turnout!

Round 3 - Dentdale 14

Dentdale's 14miles again provided a stern yet scenic test. Falling on a busy weekend, several Striders took an early-season opportunity to get valuable points on the board!

Round 4 - Ben Campbell 10K trail

A race close to the club's heart, the Ben Campbell 10k trail is the steep slopes beneath Kilburn's White Horse is held in memory of our former member whose name also adorns this very championship. 19 of our athletes took part, with our veteran ladies category being most strongly represented!

Round 5 - Ripon 10

Another regular event in our championship, the Ripon 10 is now part of the 'Ripon Hornblower' series of events.

Round 6 - Staveley Stampede

Another sunny Stampede saw some of the trends of recent rounds continue, with strong numbers taking part in the two veteran categories. In the smallest category, Senior Ladies, Laura has added another '1', closing the gap on erstwhile leader Claire, whilst in the Men's category, James Wright registered his first win of the season, continuing the pattern of a different winner in every round!
The Veteran Ladies' category saw a new first lady over the line, but it was Sue who took championship honours with Nicola holding onto the lead after 6 rounds! In the Veteran men, Ian narrowly claimed the first place, also taking away first V60 in the race itself.

Round 7 - Burton Leonard

Burton Leonard saw the highest turnout of the Championship so far, with 43 Striders taking part! Nine new names appear on our growing leaderboards as a result, including Beyhan who made an immediate impact on the Senior Ladies category! Tom Calvert became the first Senior Man to record two championship wins this year, whilst in the Veteran Men, Steve Morland narrowly pipped Ian Waller head-to-head for the first time. The Ladies' Veteran now has a new contender, with Sue racking up her third consecutive first place to put herself firmly in the mix!

Round 8 - Rougemont Chase

Seven of our Striders enjoyed an afternoon at Weeton Show, which hosted the challenging multi-terrain Rougemont Chase. An enjoyable out-and-back race (including a 'show lap' of the ring before heading off) saw some strong performances.


Round 9 - Littondale 4 mile

Nicola, Linda and Steve made the journey up Littondale to take-on the picturesque 4 mile romp around the valley, each gaining valuable championship finishes!
