The Dorset Road Race League


Races

We always welcome runners of all standards to represent us in the Dorset Road Race League (DRRL). The competition comprises a series of 12 races of various distances at different venues across the county throughout the year. Each race includes separate competitions for men and women as well as club teams. In 2017 we're competing in the first division of the men's competition and second divison for the ladies.

Scoring

At each race, the first five men home and first three ladies count towards the respective team places. Points are awarded in line with finishing positions (i.e. first male one point; second male two points). The runner with the fewest points over their best seven races is the winner; after seven races those who have completed six races (then five, etc.) are taken into account to establish a position for all who have taken part in any of the races.
There's no limit to the number of runners from each club that can enter each race.

Awards

At the end of the season, trophies are awarded to the top two teams in each division and the top team from the second division is promoted. Individual prizes are awarded to the top male and female runners in each category, the top male and female runner from each club (subject to completing a minimum of seven races) and any runner that competes in every race (known as the Fidelity Award), so there's plenty to compete for.
