EACCL Spring/summer virtual league 2021 (6/3/21)
EACCL 2019/20 season update (26/2/21)
Due to Bojo's recent announcement we have decided that sadly we will be unable to conclude the 2019/20 season. We clung on to this as an aspiration with the current pandemic. So for the 19/20 season the team results will be based on all 9 races, the individual results will be based on your best 7 races, the perfect 10 will become the perfect 9 and the Davey Blythe Memorial Trophy will be awarded to Jon Beverley. Jon has received this for all the hard work he has done for the results with his new system. This has made mine and Bobbies life so much easier and when we could race enabled you to record your finishing places so much quicker.
I will sort out the trophies next week and will endeavor to get them to the team captains for distribution and self distancing selfies as soon as possible. With current travel restrictions and rules as you can appreciate this may take some time so please stick with us as we do not have the funds to post these all out.
Thank you all again for your continued support of the league and your participation. The league survives on a shoe string to encourage as many to take part as possible with in the constraints and goodwill we have, to enable us to have as much fun in the mud on a winter's Wednesday afternoon. We are very much hoping to resume business as usual as soon as safely possible. In the mean time keep safe, get your vaccine and keep fit and healthy. The fun is hopefully just around the corner.
The final results can be found in the top left of the winter season results page

Results process for 2019/20 season (21/9/19)
Thanks to Jon at Total Race Timing we are hoping to have a new results system for the new season. This will require you bringing along your Park Run bar code, so that we can use your unique bar code. We can then apply our data to this which should make it easier in the long run to process the results. Initially we do require your patience, as we will for the first few races need to record the data as we usually do in case we have any little blips to deal with.
So when you finish you will be given a finishing position bar code instead of the old tag. This along with your PR bar code will then be scanned. You will then need to record this data like we did in previous seasons initially. Once we get everything up and running hopefully we can just scan. We will be able to get your through the results quicker and in turn Bobbie won't have to type every entry in for every race manually so she can have a glass of wine now and then and we can publish the results quicker. Happy days.
Race 6 confirmed - Blickling Park (13/9/19)
