Current Standings (March 2024)



The Rules:

  • It is open to all paid up members of the club.
  • The competition runs from  April 2023 to EO April 2024.
  • You must enter the race as a Buckley Runner to earn points in any race (Ideally you should run in a Buckley Runners vest)
  • See below for  nominated races and links.
  • Races must include a mixture of at least 3 out of the 4 formats to count – ie Road, Trail/XC, Fell, Extreme or Park Run
  • A maximum of 15 races count towards final score
  • Separate Male and Female competition


  • Points will be scored by multiplying number of runners x 5
    • So if 20 men run, the winner would get 100 points, down to the last placed Buckley male, who would get 5 points
    • If 15 ladies run, the winner would get 75 points

Extra points can be won by:

  • Getting a PB: 5 points for a PB on a previously run course


  • Winning the race: 5 points for winning down to 1 point for coming 5th


  • Winning age category: 3 points for 1st, 2 for 2nd and 1 for 3rd


  • Max for winning the Flintshire 10k in 2022, would have scored:
    • 5 points for winning the whole race
    • 70 points for being Buckley top male (14 runners)
    • So 75 points altogether from that race
