To compete in the 10KM league you must have completed at least 5x 10KM races from the selection of races for that year. In addition to the five required races each runner has an additional ‘wildcard’ race which they can use for any race across the leagues. This race must be made known to the league administrator before the race has run. Only 1 ‘wilcard’ per runner per year. Points are allocated for your finishing times versus your personal best. If you have not run a race before then an estimated time will be given for you.

New PB times gained in the half marathon challenge will not apply to the multi league unless the race is on the multi league list.Any accredited half marathon in the world is eligible but it must be run in club colours.Your participation in the event must be verified by either a picture of you participating (this can be done by a simple web link to a photo) or by another Goole Viking Strider who was at the race.
