Club Championship Criteria

LTC Club Championship 20/21 and Race Day Prizes

LTC would like athletes to consider a “whole of season” approach, and the focus will be on Club Championship points.

Race Day Prizes and Awards

  • Race day placegetters will be acknowledged – LTC will not be issuing medals or prizes for race day winners.
  • On race day, adult athletes will be categorised into age groups. These age groups will be Senior (20-39), Veteran (40-49), Super Veteran (50+). These placings will be acknowledged on race day.
  • All athletes and volunteers will be entered into spot-prize draws, and placegetters will be given additional entries, proportional to their placing. For example, all athletes will be entered once. A first-place getter will gain an additional 5 entries; the second place getter will gain an additional 4 and so on.
  • At the discretion of the Race Director, additional entries into the spot prize draw may be allocated for exceptional performance, volunteer or TO effort or for any other reason.
