The Club Championships are the West Australian Marathon Club’s most prestigious and sought-after awards! Competition is high, you won’t hear any trash talk around here but you will hear members talking about who they’ve got their money on!
The awards are presented to the most outstanding female and male runner from each age group. They’re based on the best seven performances on the annual Programme. We also recognise the efforts of our volunteers who have their own awards category.
The Club Championship rating system is determined by running pace and is used to decide the age group and overall champions each year. The current running pace is based on a 10km race, and the pace for longer and shorter events is adjusted to give an ‘equivalent’ 10km pace for each event.
Differences between age group categories
For age groups 60 years and over, eligibility is reduced to five nominated events and for the Under 16, awards are based over three events. For the Under 16, the maximum distance of each event must not exceed 5km (this includes any WAMC events, not necessarily those nominated as Club Championship events due to the distance limitation).
A members age will be based on their age at the first event they complete each year.
The nominated races used to calculate the 2020 champions are as follows:
