For 2021 we will have the standard championship which will incorporate a mixture of short, medium and long off road races. We will also have a summer short hill race championship incorporating the Cosmic/Deeside summer series races. Obviously a lot of races are TBC so there may be changes as/when we find out race information. For the main championship race scoring will be as per the document below:
The age grading however doesn’t take into consideration the terrain of the race. For example, it is difficult to score high in Lairig Ghru and Ben Rinnes because of this. To avoid favouritism towards “easier” races we have added grading points to certain races based on terrain difficulty.
Below is a list of all the races including dates they commence (if known) and a link (click on the race) to the relevant website for entry. Reminders will also be posted on the ITRC Facebook page so nobody misses out.
