The England Athletics Champions of the Road series is new for 2019. In addition to individual titles at each of our England Athletics road running championship races listed below, it offers individuals and club teams competing in three or more championship events the opportunity to become the outright England Athletics Champion of the Roads.
Each of the six races listed will be a stand-alone England Championship race with individual and team titles up for grabs at 5k, 5 miles, 10k, 10 miles, Half-Marathon and Marathon. As well as recognising the the top three individuals, club teams will also be able to challenge for medals. Both men’s and women’s teams will be scored separately, with three runners to count. The times of the fastest three runners in a team will give an aggregate score to determine the winning team.
The results from each of these races will also count towards the overall Champions of the Road race series. Individuals and clubs who compete in three or more of these championship races will have the opportunity to contest for the overall title of Champion of the Roads.
End of series awards will be made in these categories, including special bespoke Champions of the Road kit designed for the series winners.
