SHR Championship
Scottish Hill Runners have organised a championship since 1983. The competition provides a test of all-round hill running ability, requiring runners to complete at least one race in each category (except for Over 60s and Over 70s): short, medium and long.

The championship is based on your best 4 results from 6 races.

The 6 races in the 2014 Scottish Hill Running Championship are as follows:

SHR Championship 2014
Race Distance Date
Scolty Short 1st June
Dollar Medium 28th June
Glenshee 9 Long 3rd August
Lomonds of Fife Medium 17th August
Two Breweries Long 27th September
Meall nan Tarmachan Short 11th October
Races: One race must be completed from EACH category (Long, Medium, Short), PLUS one other to complete the championship i.e. 4 races in total. NB: For the 60+ and the 70+ categories, runners are allowed to complete ANY 4 out of the 6 races.
Eligibility: Competitors should be over 18 on day of the race. Scottish eligibility is required for the awards i.e. Scottish by birth, residence, or membership of a first claim Scottish club. Mementos are also given to all SHR members completing the championship.
Individuals: There is no requirement for membership of any organisation. Individuals are welcome to compete as individuals.
Categories: Individual Senior men/women; Over 40 men/women; Over 50 men/women; Over 60 men/women and (NEW for 2013) Over 70 men/women (if we get entrants). Age category is determined by age on the day of the race.

Team prizes to first men and womens teams (in both senior and veteran categories). 4 to count for Senior Men and 3 to count for Women and both Men and Women's Over 40 teams. NB: An athlete can only count for one Club's team in a given championship race.

Scoring: Points are awarded to the first 40 in each category. First in each category at any race receives 1 extra point, i.e. 41 points for first, 39 points for second, etc. No requirement to gain a point to receive a memento, finishing the race is what matters.
Tie Breaker: In the event of a tie in any of the championship categories, the winner will be the one who has beaten the other the most in championship races. If contenders are still equal after this has been applied, then they will tie.
The Scottish Hill Running Trophies will be awarded on the basis of the Scottish Hill Runners Championship. The first three in each category (whether SHR members or not) will be awarded medals, with the winner receiving the requisite Scottish Hill Running Trophy, to be kept for one calendar year.

All SHR members who complete the championship will be awarded a worthwhile memento (usually a mug with photograhs of championship races), i.e. you must be a member of the SHR for the year you are competing in the championship if you want to receive the memento.
