Ladies Championship 2019

Championship 2018 – Winner!!!  Caz 

2019 Tadworth Ladies Championship series

A number of races qualify for this throughout the year and all you have to do is run at least 6 of them over 11 months to score in the championship.  You can, of course, do all of the races and I have tried to include a wide range of race distances and terrains.  Points will be awarded for your Tadworth placing for each race and the lower the score the better, in other words – if you are the first Tadworth lady in, then you will score 1 point.  Your best 6 scores will qualify for the final tally and the series will end after the last race in November 2019.  Prizes will be given to the first senior women, first vet women and first super vet.  These will be awarded at the Christmas Party in December 2019
