The Ilkley Harriers Race League is an annual competition, first run in 1995 to stimulate friendly competition between Club members, and is based on results in races agreed by the Club Committee and announced in the newsletter and fixtures list.
Your time relative to the winner's time is scaled by an age/gender factor as in the table (right) to calculate race points.
Up to 4 races count in the category competitions (trail and xc, road, and fell).The overall League results will include 3 races from each category plus a wild card race.

From 2014 the League overall standings will include your best 3 scores from each category plus an additional 'wildcard' race. The wildcard allows runners to pick a race that isn't one of the listed League races. So, if you have a particular favourite race or just had a really good run then you can count that toward your League score. We hope that people will be sensible about this and keep to the spirit of the League but here a few rules:
Before 2014, the overall standings were based on 10 races, at least 3 from each category. In 2014 the new 'wild card' was introduced.
The League record of 1032 points was set in 2007 by Geoff Howard.
