Courier Cups

The Woodford Green Cup and the John Norton Trophy
These pieces of silverware are awarded to, respectively, the male and female runners who have performed at a consistently high level through the cross-country season. The competitions are on a points basis with, for the men, 20 for first Courier home in each of the Hereford League fixtures , 19 for the second man, 18 for the third and so on, with the scores totalled after the 5 fixtures. To stand a chance of winning, you pretty well HAVE to do all 5 races. It is the same system for the women, though with 10 points max per race [as there tend to be fewer female Couriers racing.] As well as the silverware,there are medals for the first 3 men and women. If points totals are tied, the runner with the higher overall  position in any of the races will get the nod.
