The CompassSport Cup (and Trophy)

The CompassSport Cup (CSC) is an interclub competition with regional heats and a final, which this year is in central Scotland.  The competition is split into the Cup (clubs with over 125 members) and the Trophy (clubs with 125 or fewer members).

This year CLOK is in the Trophy competition.

Courses

Each age group is allocated to a colour-coded course from Orange to Brown, as shown in this table.

CourseAge classes
BrownMen Open
Short Brown  M20- and M40+
BlueM50+ and Women Open
GreenM18-, M60+, W20- and W45+  
Short GreenM70+, W18- and W60+
OrangeM14- and W14-

Some of the courses are divided into separate classes.  For example, there are separate Blue Men and Blue Women classes.

In each class, the winner gets 100 points, and the score for lower places drops by 1 or 2 points per place depending on whether the class is categorised as "large" or "small". them.

We may need some people 'run up' to balance our team and give us the best chance of progressing.  I'll always consult / persuade a competitor before before entering them in a course other than their allocated one.

Please note that juniors cannot be shadowed if they're competing in the CSC competition.

There will also be White, Yellow and Light Green courses available at the event for runners who are not taking part in the main event.

The club will pay all entry fees for the CompassSport Trophy runners.

Final words

Please put this in your calendar and watch out for further information.  If we can get a good number of runners to the event we can be very competitive in the Trophy competition.

If you need any additional information – particularly for our new members – please contact me.
