Road Race League

The Wiltshire Road Race League (The League) sponsored by Newsquest Media Group is an annual series of races for all runners from clubs affiliated to Wiltshire Athletic Association with the goal of promoting road running within the county and raising the profile of Wiltshire clubs and athletes.

Following on from the success of it's inaugural season in 2012, The League will be structured into two divisions (First and Second) and will run from January to December, with all races selected being in the same calendar year.

Points shall be scored by teams according to the finishing positions of the first five male athletes and first five female athletes belonging to the same Wiltshire affiliated club, with the points being determined by the overall position of the runners against those of other Wiltshire Athletic Association affiliated club athletes of the same sex with 100 points being awarded to the first and counting down thereafter. Clubs with more than five runners of the same sex will have their points attributed to their ‘B’ team, if applicable. The calculation of points scored will be performed by the Road Running Secretary of Wiltshire Athletic Association.

An award shall be made to the club with the highest scoring team in the First Division of The League and also to the club with the highest scoring team in the Second Division of The League. An award shall also be made to the highest scoring Man and Lady within The League and also in the V40, V50 & V60 age categories.
