About the Championship

The Club Championship is a league designed to reward ERC members’ performances and commitment to the club throughout the year.  Points are awarded for participating in inter-club league and competition races (e.g. cross country and midweek road league) and other races where there is a good ERC presence as well as for volunteering (e.g. marshalling and baggage) duties.

The league runs from 1st December through to 30th November and prizes are awarded to the top male and female members, at the Christmas party in December.
