Ben Campbell Club Championship Standings 2019

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

Championship Standings

We have now reached the two-thirds mark of our club championship after a strong turnout of Striders at the unusual Sessay Swift 6K. All four categories remain open and it looks certain that most will not be decided until the last couple of rounds! Remember that your total is calculated from your best seven age-adjusted scores - you can now see members who have been able to drop their worst scores! Round 11 is next - Wetherby 10k - with a good number of Striders usually in attendance. Will things be any clearer after that?

Senior Ladies

With seven finishes needed to compete for the title, we now have a three-way contest. Laura takes the lead from Claire, although Emma remains in with a mathematical possibility!

Senior Men

Most of the senior men could yet challenge for the outright title. James W currently looks to be favourite but if Tom Calvert or James Ireland can register a few more of their strong finishes, that could all change...

Veteran Ladies

There are still five of our Veteran ladies who could lift the championship with five rounds remaining. Several athletes are likely to be dropping scores in the coming weeks and that could change their fortunes considerably! For now, Nicola continues to collect strong results and hold the opposition at bay.

Veteran Men

The well-attended veteran men category continues to move towards a close finish. It is clear that the destination of the five remaining '1's now available will determine our winner.

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!

Race 9

Round 10 - Sessay Swift 6K

Congratulations to our contingent of nineteen Striders who made the short trip to Sessay Swift last night for round 10 of our Ben Campbell Club Championship.

The fast fast tarmac route over the unconventional distance of 6K had many competitors scratching their heads as to how to approach the event, but mutterings around the start-line seemed to be mostly ‘like a parkrun, but with an extra bit..’. Our Striders did themselves proud, not only as the third biggest-represented club on the night, but also finishing a close second in the Mens’ team event behind a very strong Leeds AC team. Tom Calvert was our lead man home in an excellent 20:25, building on his recent parkrun form, whilst Nicola Carter clocked a great 26:44 to lead our squad of nine ladies in.


Round 11 - Wetherby 10K


Wetherby 10K will take place on Sunday 1st September 2019
