Centre Champion Award

The Centre Champion award is awarded to the athlete who attains the highest results through the Zone, Region and State Championships. For the 2014/15 Season a new award system was put in place to allocate points through these championships events.

Therefore, if an athlete performs consistently in a number of events across all the Championship levels this will be reflected in the number of points they will receive. The points start at 12 for 1st in the Zone, followed by 10 for 2nd, 3rd-8, 4th-6, 5th-5, 6th-4, 7th-3, 8th-2, to 1 for participating and completing in an event. For the region, these points have a weighting of 1.5 and for the State a weighting of 2. To be eligible for these awards you must have attended at least 60% of the Friday running nights for the season. If the highest scoring athlete fails to qualify for State Championships, and another athlete finishes in top 3 in an event at State Championships, then this will nullify the points total.

Points Champion Award

Introduced in the 2020-2021 season, the Points Champion award is awarded on the same points score method to determine each age group Champion. Each age champion has their points divided by total number of their available events to determine the highest average point scorer of all age groups in their category.

Both Centre Champion and Points Champion awards are now presented to athletes in the Junior and Senior categories;

Junior Champion – 7-12 years
Senior Champion- 13-17 years
