The Campbelltown Joggers Club Championship is contested over a series of nine monthly races commencing in February each year and finishing with the final race in October. The races are usually held on the fourth Sunday of the month but please check the club calendar as a few times during the series, a race may be held on the second or third Sunday of the month due to clashes with long weekends, other events that may be held at Bradbury Oval or a clash of date with a popular fun run like the Sutherland 2 Surf.
Points are awarded to all qualified finishers in each race and at the end of the series of nine races the best seven results of each competitor are used to determine the finishing order in the Championship. To qualify to score championship points you must be a financial member of Campbelltown joggers Club and have completed two qualifying races (5km and 10 Mile events are included as qualifying runs) to allow the handicappers to assess your running ability and apply a fair handicap to your time.
There are two types of start that we use in the Championship, Staggered Start and Mass Start with these starts being alternated each month. With the Staggered Start all runners start off their handicap time with the slowest runners starting first and the quicker runners starting last. With a Staggered Start the order that you cross the finishing line determines your finishing order (subject to being qualified) this usually creates a close finish where most of the runners will finish within a minute. With a Mass Start all runners start at the same time and this creates a straight out race to the finish. The finishing order will not determine the race result, once all competitors have crossed the finish line handicaps will be applied to all of the runners times to determine the race result.
