Club Championships

The club championships award our best runners in each category and race distance. The year runs from the December of the previous year to the middle of November (according to the date of the Annual Awards evening - a key date in the club's social calendar). The races are shown in the list on the right (club championships), except for the Marathon which is for any recognised marathon in the world.

To be eligible to win a trophy or runners up medal you must:

  • be a fully paid up member 
  • enter as a member of Reigate Priory AC
  • run under your own name wearing the race number specifically allocated to you
  • wear club colours, either the standard RPAC running vest or long or short sleeved derivative (not mandatory for marathon championship, see note below)

All trophies / medals are engraved at the expense of the club and are presented at the annual Awards Evening.

It will be noted that the first male and female to cross the finish line complying with these rules is designated the Club Champion regardless of age. Thereafter, the next male 40-49 / male 50-59 / male 60+ / female 35-44 / female 45-54 / female 55+ to finish is designated the appropriate Veteran Champion.

However, if there is only one person competing in an age category, then that person will compete in the age category above (e.g. MV50-59 rather than MV60+), i.e. no club champion will be awarded in an age category where there is only one runner.

Each of the champions receives a personal memento for their permanent retention plus a trophy which they hold for a year. Runners up medals will be awarded to those finishing second in their category.

Marathon championship

It is not compulsory to wear the club vest in a marathon in recognition the runner may be running for a charity and wearing their vest.
