Pensby Supercup

The Pensby Super Cup is to decide the Victor Omnium of Pensby Runners for 2017. This league is across all our running disciplines. You can take part in as many or as few as you like but ….. races make prizes.

There is a men’s and ladies’ Victor Omnium trophy. First man home and first lady home get minimum 15 points. Second 14, third 13 etc down to 3 points. Should there be more than 13 men or women then the maximum will increase to the number entered plus 2 e.g. if 14 men then 16 points and similarly down to 3 points. DNFs get one point.

In addition, if an athlete completes in at least one race in each category they will receive an additional 10 points.

Also, if an athlete completes all 10 races in the Supercup they will receive a further 10 bonus points.

Competitors can take part in as many or as few Super cup races as they wish. They need not race in each category (Categories are : Fell, Cross Country (XC), Club, Road and Multi-terrain. There are two races in each category. There are no additional races selected for the Supercup. All races are selected from existing leagues.

You have to be a fully paid up member (1st or 2nd claim) of Pensby Runners to take part. The wearing of the Pensby vest is mandatory (with the exception of ‘fell’ category where it is preferred and internal club events where it must not be worn. You must be eligible to run for Pensby in the race.

All races are already on the calendar in one of the other road, fell, cross country etc leagues so e.g. if you run the Birkenhead Park 5 you would accumulate points for both the Supercup and the Road leagues.
