Burney Cup & Mary Gash Shield 2020 & Latest Standings

posted in: Latest News | 0



Over many years these two trophies have been awarded to the Notts Senior athlete who has gained the most points by competing in a number of road races from March through to September.  With races being cancelled – this will take place as a virtual fun competition.  Well almost all the races.  If we are allowed to compete then the races will be ‘real’.  So this is how it will work:

  • If the race is cancelled – the athlete needs to run that same distance on the specified date and submit a photograph of their watch indicating the time taken and distance covered.
  • If the race is ‘live’ and ‘real’ then the athlete has to compete in it and wear their Notts AC vest to get points. 
  • For virtual events – you have 24 hours to submit your times. 
  • In each gender whoever, runs the quickest time scores 10 points and so on until the 10th fastest scoring 1 point.  All athletes finishing below the 10th position will still score 1 point.  (This is the same as how it has operated before).
  • At the end of the season – the person with the most points will be declared the winner.

Please note that this is being organised as a bit of fun and something for athletes to focus on.
