The Three Club Challenge is an informal event that is held annually between ourselves, Wreake and Barrow.
However, due to Covid-19 restrictions the event was not run during 2019 & 2020. Hopefully the event will return in 2022 with Wreake being the host club – further details will be shared nearer the date (Summer 2022)
The emphasis is on participation, with teams taking along more runners being the most likely to score highly – unlike the league races where only the top 8 (or 4) runners count, the score is driven off the number of runners in the smallest team. As an example, if Barrow had 30 runners, Wreake 25 and Stilton 22 then the first 22 runners from each club would be counted.
After a good run (likely around 5 undulating miles on a mix of footpaths and tracks) there will be something to eat and a raffle in the bar – always a really good evening and doesn’t break the bank.
