Club Champs


How does the Club Championship Work?

We have selected a range of fell races for the 2022 Junior Championships. In each race, the Ambleside Juniors will be awarded points according to their position relative to other Ambleside Juniors in our age categories of U9; U11; U13; U15; U17; U19

The first Ambleside runner (in each of our age categories) will be awarded 12 points; second 10 points; third 9 points; fourth 8 points; etc to 11th place awarded 1 points.

Each runner’s best 6 results will count towards their final Championship poins total. There are 12 races listed, giving plenty of choice and a spread of dates through the year.

Some of these races are part of the national FRA English Junior Championships, as last years 3rd place it would be fantastic to see loads of you at these races and fight for the title.
