What is the Race Series all about?
Each year 11 races are carefully selected depending on distance, terrain, cost and enjoyment! The race series is sponsored by Specsavers Sleaford.
From your results, points are then awarded depending on age and gender against a national scale using a recognised formula.
Of the eleven races, your best nine results will count towards your final score and the top three women and men receive prizes at the end of the year. The race series is not compulsory and is intended as a bit of fun so that you can gauge your results against your peers.
The current standings can be seen here.
Below are the races for the 2018 series. 9 out of 11 races to count. For 2018 we have some races that we haven’t been to before like Clawson 10k, The Stilton Stumble & Doncaster 10k as well as some local favourites like The Rauceby Ripper & Summer Solstice.
