About the road league
The league comprises a series of public road races that take place across the year (see table below). This includes the Huddersfield Park run. Only Seniors and Under 17s take part. (UKA rules for competition (Rule 207 - see below) says the maximum distance for road racing for a 15 year old is 10km, for a 13-14 year old is 6km)
Athletes enter the races and score points for their postions in terms of who was home first, second, third etc. for Longwood Harriers.
Points scores: 1st: 15 points; 2nd 12 points; 3rd 10 points and then in descending order one point each time per place
Over the season these are recorded by Donald Kennedy (who is the league organiser) and added together to give the final totals and result you can see here.
