First runner for each category will receive 6 points, the second 5 points, then 4, 3, 2 and 1 point for the remaining runners. The scoring system for the 2018 Championship will be based on an Age Graded system (calculation based on this website: http://www.arrs.net/)

Championship trophies will be rewarded to Top Male, Top Female, V50 Male and V45 Female.

A commemorative medal for the runners will be delivered to each runner (except the one rewarded with a trophy) who performed 8 races from the Championship list in view to promote the Didcot Runner club.
