The Clonliffe 2020 club championships will take place over three evenings starting on Tuesday, July 14 with the 100 and 800. Day two will feature 400 and 5000 on Thursday the 16th with day three (skipping a week for the Dublin graded) on Tuesday the 28th for the 1500.
This year for obvious reasons we have a very different club championship. All club members please read and understands the following:
The championship is confined to fully paid-up club members only.
It is a condition of entry to the club Championships that you have read and understand all the detail on the Covid – 19 page of this website and in particular that you are not answering yes to any of the medical/travel questions.
Entry to the championships is in advance. No entries on the day and no late entries. If you are a member of a training group please talk to your coach as we want the coaches to enter the athletes in a block. If you are not a member of a club training group you may of course enter following the same format.
Entries must be made by email to firstname.lastname@example.org specifying the event you are entering, your name and an accurate predictive finishing time.
Entry for days one and two is now open and will close at midnight on Friday night July 11th.A timetable and start list for each race will be published on this website the evening before each championship day.
It would help enormously if all athletes could make a bib (maybe use the reverse of an old race number) and write their name in black marker, capitals please on that.
Athletes are requested not to come onto the track until they are called for their particular race.
Once the race is over all, except the first three in the championship, must leave the arena. Do not approach the officials for your finishing time or position. This will be posted on the club website that night.
Cash prizes for the first three men and first three women in each of the championship events (subject to there being a minimum of four starters in each).
Please note that we will not have electronic timing and all events will be hand timed, the officials will do the utmost to record the finishing times for as many as possible but as always the strong advice is to self time.
Any club member not taking part in the championship please make yourself available on the evening to assist with officiating. All officials are advised to wear face masks. If you’re in a position to officiate please text Noel Guiden 0879599888 as soon as possible so we can fully plan.
