The Hampshire Road Race League (HRRL) is a series of road races, selected around the county for varying distance and location and between September and June. There are twelve races in the current season, all of which are open to everyone to compete in.
The HRRL is an umbrella organisation run by a committee of representatives from member clubs within Hampshire (and even Wiltshire). It provides a competitive edge to road racing and by entering and competing as individuals many runners get motivation from regularly racing against others at or near their own level, whatever that maybe.
Individual scoring is calculated on a descending % basis where the first HRRL runner gets 100% and the last 1%, for men and ladies individually. This method of scoring allows a simple gauge to your improving performance as the training begins to pay off. To score in the final league tables individuals must complete in at least 7 of the 12 races, and it is the 7 best scores that count.
Club teams score points through the success of their runners, and the series culminates in awards to the highest placed teams in the leagues. Clubs can have multiple teams, there are A and B leagues, which enables a wide participation from club runners of all standards, abilities and ages, all of whom are representing the club. The team event runs alongside the individual competition, and each teams score is based on individual finishing position, with 4 men per team, and 3 for ladies.
