05/02/2019 Standards and Records - Change to Qualifying Race Rules

Dear Members

At the most recent Committee meeting it was decided, in light of the number of multi-terrain races being promoted this year, to change the rules of the club with regard to Standards and Records. Until now to qualify as an acceptable race the course had to hold a Certified Accurate certificate issued by the Association of UK Course Measurers (http://aukcm.org.uk/).

The ACM issue two types of certificate;

"Certified Accurate"

This certifies a race as being both accurately measured, and a Road Race (not more than 10% unsealed road surface as defined by the IAAF)

"Registered Distance"

 

This certifies a race as being accurately measured, but including more than 10% unsealed surface.

Until this decision Werrington Joggers, being a road running club, only accepted races that were Certified Accurate (with the exception of Rutland and Peterborough Parkruns and the Werrington Guesstimate). The Committee have decided with immediate effect to accept claims for races taking place on courses covered by the Registered Distance certificate as well. As a consequence many of the races promoted for Nene Park will now be acceptable for Standards and Records. This decision is not retrospective and no claims can be made for Registered Distance races prior to 04th Feb 2019. The websites will be changed in due course to reflect this

05/12/2018 Proposal for Second Strip

At the AGM a request was made for the committee to consider a second club strip, especially for summer races. After investigation into the rules governing races there are no technical reasons why the club could not register a second strip; but in all team competitions there are rules requiring all members competing needing to wear the same strip. For Cambs Road League, Relays and other team races this would be problematic to organise for the team captain and would cause race referees additional work. In addition the committee felt that organising and holding a second stock of kit would also generate additional administration work and cost for the club, so on the whole were not in support of the proposal after due consideration.

 

If enough members feel strongly that this should be reconsidered, we would do so, but there would need to be a considerable number of requests in support of the proposal to balance both the cost of buying the kit, the administration and complexities with regard to events.

 

Regards,

Committee.“
