The “ Peter Mander Pentathon Cup”
This perpetual trophy was donated by Peter Mander for an annual calendar year competition and is open to all members. It operates similarly to the Cornish Grand Prix. Over the course of a season, runners will be able to compete not only towards an overall Pentathon Cup winner but also towards age group prizes.
The committee have chosen a series of races over 7 distances (5km, 5 miles, 10km, 7 miles, 10 miles, ½ marathon and marathon). Once a runner has completed a race in the series they will be placed onto a leader board for that distance ranked from fastest downwards. The person at the top of each leader board will score 100 points, 2nd 99 points and so on. These points will then be used to create both overall and age group tables for both men and women. At the end of the year the person top of each respective leader board will be crowned the champion of their age group. Once each age group winner has been crowned, the times of races will be used to create an age graded score to calculate the overall winner of the Pentathon cup. In addition, there will also be completion prizes for runners who complete any five races over 5 distances. Please note that you may compete in as many races as you wish and your best time only will be used to score points.
Times generally will be taken from official results sheets, but, at the Committees’ discretion, an exception may be made for certain larger races where chip times are not available.
Your age at the beginning of the calendar year will determine your age group for the competition. The age groups are as follows: U20, 21-35, 36-45, 46-55, 56-65, 65+
