The Club Championships

Heathside runs a series of internal club championships for road racing, cross-country, track & field and Triathlon and Duathlon. These are competed for annually and the winners are presented with their prizes at the Christmas Party or the Summer Ball. 

1. The Turner Shield 

The Turner Shield is London Heathside’s longest standing award. It is awarded each year to the club’s most consistent male cross country runner and was first presented to the club before the Second World War, so the previous winners include many of the club’s top runners over the years. Points are scored in the main cross-country races each winter, usually 12 of them, and the person with most points wins.

2. The Lambert Trophy

The Lambert Trophy was presented to the club about 20 years ago by Ron Lambert, who correctly felt it was about time there was a female equivalent of the Turner Shield. It works in exactly the same way with points being scored in the same major races and with the overall winner being the person who scores most points.

4. Club Track & Field Championships

This is a relatively new Heathside promotion, having only started in 2008. 

It takes place over two Tuesday evenings in June or July at Finsbury Park track with three track events and two or three field events on each evening. 

It is mainly just for fun and to give people a chance to try out new events without the pressure of league competition. There is however a prize for the best all round athlete, for which you have to compete in at least one sprint, one longer race, one jump and one throw, with the times/heights/distances converted into points using decathlon tables and age gradings so that members of all ages and both genders can compete on a level playing field.

5. Triathlon and Duathlon Championships

These take place from May to August. There are two championships - one for Sprint Triathlon and one for Duathlon. For more information see the Triathlon section.

Plus: the London Heathside Club Handicap

Normally the third Tuesday night in July. A fun event for club members only, where i

 in a combined 5K race, men and women compete for separate awards in a run around beautiful Highgate Woods.

The format is that the slower runners start off the course a pre-determined number of minutes and seconds before the scratch runners. This time is their handicap time and is assigned by the handicapper, who bases his estimates on recent form and is completely unmoved by tales of injury, illness, training woes (unless they are written on the back of a large denomination banknote).
