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.

3. Rob Jackson Trophy (RJT)
 
New information for 2018
We are making several changes to the Rob Jackson Trophy (RJT) for 2018. These changes are intended to promote greater levels of participation and competition. We are hoping that the changes will result in at least 50% of our members participating in at least one of the designated races for 2018.
 
The main changes are as follows:
 
• We have a shorter season, with the championship starting in January and ending in September (to minimise clashes with cross country races).
 
• We will increase the number of races from eight to ten with members needing to complete five races to be eligible for an award but allowing the best six races to count.
 
• The scoring system will be simplified, with the first placed LHS runner in any given race being awarded 100 points, the second place 99 points, third 98 etc. separately for men and women.
 
• There will be separate awards for each age category (senior, 40 plus, 50 plus, 60 plus) for men and women (eight in total) so losing the current complex age bandings and scoring systems.
 
• We increase the number of races in the series from eight to ten, requiring members to complete at least five races to be eligible but allowing six races to count towards the overall standings.
 
The races are:
 
1. Fred Hughes 10    21st Jan 2018  NEW
 
2. Watford Half Marathon   4th Feb 2018
 
3. Finchley 20    18th March 2018
 
All of these races can be entered on line via https://www.activetrainingworld.co.uk/events
 
4. Crouch End 10k    20th May 2018

5. Regents Park 10k   3rd June 2018   NEW

6. LHS Handicap or Club Champs 5k 19th July 2018  NEW
 
7. Battersea Relays (3x1M)  30th July 2018

8. Battersea 5k    13th August 2018

9. Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park 10k  1st September 2018 NEW
https://www.theraceorganiser.com/enter-race/776#anchor
 
10. Middlesex 10k 30th September 2018  
 
As you will see we are proposing to use our own handicap race as part of the series. In addition, as well as the CE10k, the intention is to support new runners to the club via a similar training programme for the QE Olympic Park 10k.
 
We hope to have an awards ceremony/social event at the end of the programme in October and to “celebrate” the start of the new cross-country season.
 
We will make more of promoting the RJT championship throughout the season to both existing and new members.

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 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 handicappers, who base their estimates on recent form.
