We are delighted to announce the return of the QPH Road Race championships for 2022.

Starting in January, there will be at least one race each month designated as a QPH championship event (see provisional list below and calendar of events on this site). 


After each event your times will be collated on a spreadsheet and at the end of the year we will give out lots of medals (everyone loves medals) in several categories including:

  • The 3 men and women with the best *age grading % over an average of best 5 events

  • Most improved male and female runner (having taken part in at least 5 events) 

  • The most consistent age grading % across all events entered 

  • The highest number of completed QPH championship events

  • The Full House prize - for anyone who manages to run 5 different distance events including 5k (see below about park run), 10k, 10miles, half marathon and marathon


*age grading is a statistical attempt to measure the relative strength of a performance for an athlete of a given age. In other words it is harder for the average 60 year old to run 5km in 30mins than it is for the average 18 year old. So, if they got the same time the 60 year old would have a higher age grading.

This year's Road Race Captain is Ben Posen. if you have any questions you can contact him on
