Updated 26/11/17

The Night Owls League will run through the winter months. A series of events will determine the night owls champions.

In addition to the Club Events shown below, the league will use the results of NE Nights (3/5/18 hosted by NN)

Best results will determine the standing in the league. Prizes will be awarded to best runners in the following categories
(Men, Women, Veteran and Junior).

The final race will be a handicap race (based on performances over the other races) with a prize for the winner.

Scoring will be based on a comparison to the winner of the Long (or M21) Course with the best four results to count.

A `Long' course (~ 4 km.)(with a degree of technical difficulty appropriate to the area) and a short course (~ 2 km.) suitable for newcomers.
