The league has a similar structure to past years. It only considers Cleethorpes members, which are ranked by position after a particular race.
Males & Females compete in one overall league, as well as being scored in each category, for coming first in each category 20 is awarded, at the end of the year, only your best 12 events will count towards your total, giving you plenty of events to gain points if you miss any.

The minimum age to be in the Half Marathon league is 17, with a minimum age of 20 for Marathon league. Your points will be added at the end of the season and placed in the main league as one of your best 12 scores if this score is better than any one of your league race scores.
A minimum of 8 races is required to gain awards and out of all 24 events your 8-12 races will count as your final score.
