League structure:

  • It was agreed there would be a single league which covers all 6 or 7 races
  • It will be a ‘normal’ LRRL league with divisions and vet leagues
  • Individual runners can drop 2 results so the best 4 of 6 or 5 of 7 will count, teams can drop one result
  • League tables will be calculated using chip time (not gun time) following a vote 11 to 7 in favour of chip time to allow social distancing at the start (it was noted that this will remain a temporary change and the intention is to return to gun times in future)
  • All LRRL races will be open to LRRL club members only for one week before optionally opening to the general public if there are places remaining.  This is to give clubs the opportunity to enter teams
  • Team sizes will change for 2022 as follows:
    • Men 6 to count (reduced from 8)
    • Women 4 to count (reduced from 6)
    • Vet men 4 to count
    • Vet women 3 to count 
    • Mixed team 4 men and 4 women (of any age category) to count
  • The Mens and Womens teams can be all Senior/Junior, or a mix of Senior/Junior/Vets (no mandatory vet like DRXC or Reunion League).
