HH Saturday Series
The next Saturday Series event will be held on October 4th at Westminster Lodge, Verulamium, St Albans.
This is the opening race in the Schools & Youth League competition.
Event details are now available through the Fixtures section or directly from this link..
As in previous years, the league will run over the winter, based on the HH Saturday Series. The scoring events are listed below. There have been a couple of significant rule changes:
- Firstly, we have introduced the opportunity to earn joker points if an individual attends a non-schools league HH events or a level C events run by any club. Up to 2 sets of Joker points can be earned and these are doubled if the competitor also joins HH. These will not count towards a Group’s score. The motivation is to encourage youth league competitors to make the transition to Sunday events and encourage individual HH membership.
- Secondly, shadowing is now allowed on Yellow and Orange. The rules contain a definition of shadowing making it is clear that it is just for safety and to prevent distress if the competitor becomes seriously lost. If direct assistance is given the competitor should be non-competitive.
Because of difficulties in obtaining the necessary permissions to stage the event, this year’s City Race has been postponed. It had been planned for October 12th.
We hope that it can be rescheduled for next year, once these issues have been resolved.
HH won the 5 event GLOSS series by a very good margin. With 12 other clubs competing, this is a great result and congratulations to all who took part with special mention for Ian Byford who scored a large number of points for us.
