Entry

To compete in the Parkrun Cup, you must:

  • Be a current paid up member of the club
  • Have already set a time at Deal and Walmer parkrun (WADS) in 2019
  • Register for a free parkrun account.

 

The entry window will be announced on our Facebook group, email and closes August 1st.

 

Draw

Runners will be randomly drawn for against their round 1 opponents by the competition administrator(s). After the 1st round is complete, we’ll simply concertina the fixtures, so the winner of pairing 1 will face the winner of pairing 2 etc. We will be restricting each round to 1 month (So 1st to 31st).

 

 

Racing

Runners will arrange the dates of their own ties and inform the competition administrator(s).

Runs can only take place at WADS parkrun and both runners should set their times on the same event.

Please not that there is a 1 month window per round to complete the race, so we can move into each month with a new round.

In the event of odd rounds, i.e. 5 people moving forward to the next round. The fastest loser will get a 2nd life to run again and compete in the next round. This will take the form of fastest loser Vs slowest winner to avoid confusion.

In the very unlikely event of a draw, competitors will be asked to run again on another date.

 

Split dates

In the event that a date cannot be mutually agreed, runners may set their times over separate events. However dates must be set in advance and submitted to the competition administrator(s).

Once a runner has set a time, their opponent must stick to their agreed date, even if the conditions are unfavourable, or risk forfeit.

For this reason, runners should endeavour where possible to run the same event as their opponent.

 

Scoring points

Each runner will race against their own target time with their score representing their performance against it.

For example, your target time is 0:30:00. On race day you:

  • match it – your score is 100
  • run 0:28:30 (5% faster) – your score is 105
  • run 0:31:30 (5% slower) – your score is 95

 

The runner with the highest point score, not the fastest time, is the winner.

Your target score for round 1 will be your seasons best WADS parkrun time. If a runner improves their seasons best on, or between rounds, they will reset their seasons best and give themselves a harder target to beat.

 

Results

Results will be calculated by the race administrators as soon as possible on each Saturday where a race takes place.

Results are posted on the club’s closed Facebook group and on the club’s physical notice board.
