Points are given for Attendance and Support over the year.

Attendance - The highest percentage of points are given for attendance, without regular attendance you are unlikely to improve. There are also bonus points given if you beat your PB from the previous year, in either of the Winter XC periods.

Support - When you compete for the Club in Races, not only does this help you to improve and gain experience but also shows support for you club. We also appreciate help with Club Races such as help with marshalling. A great deal of money from these races are given to local charities but also pays the Cotswold School Fees for the Junior Running Club, thus reducing Membership Fees.

The Jack Oaky Trophy is presented to the member, girl or boy, with the highest number of points, who has not previously won the Trophy before. They keep the Trophy for a year.
