Summer Series 2022

Summer Series 2022

Rules/general

  • To receive a Summer Series (SS) medal, you need to complete 6 out of 8 nominated SS races (as per the list below).
  • The Summer Series is designed as a more accessible, shorter-term, shorter-distance, lower-cost version of the Championship, held partly on Summer evenings, and spanning May to early September.
  • Full rules, scoring etc appear at 4 here.

Races – notes

  • The list below is an interim list.
  • Those events in bold are confirmed as proceeding by their organisers and will definitely be used in the SS.
  • Those stated as OPEN are now open to entries; members are advised not to delay in booking in for races at which they intend to compete.
  • Events shown in normal type have yet to be confirmed by their organisers. By the end of April, they will either be confirmed to PRR runners or replaced in the series by other races of a similar distance. As soon as races are confirmed and/or open for entries, or their alternatives selected, PRR members will be notified.
  • The SS features new/recent features based on their success in the 2021 SS:
    • a Club-only/organised race over the Not The Hermitage course behind/around Birnam; this was the course used as SS5 in 2021; and
    • a Strava time trial – as per the format of much of the 2021 SS – over the 5-mile Dron course (used as SS4 in 2021). Attempts may be made between 1st May and 31st August inclusive; you can run it as many times as you like and your best time will be used for scoring.
  • The Series seeks to avoid too many clashes with the summer holiday season, and, with its 6/8 approach and the option of the time trial at any point in the season, provides reasonable flexibility.
  • In response to requests and growing interest in the genre, it also contains a higher trail-running element than preceding SSs.
