North Staffordshire Road Runners Association was set up in July 1974 to promote road running in the North Staffordshire region. Members are organised into groups based on ability. There are seven mens and four ladies groups. There are also leagues for different age groups 40 to 44, 45 to 50 etc.
Each year 20 races are chosen to go into the NSRRA programme and the best 12 performances in these races count towards the league competition. In each of the events the 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th etc in each group receives 50, 49, 48, 47 etc points.

NSRRA are strongly advising that runners do not wear headphones.
This can be dangerous as you cannot hear marshalls instructions. With most courses not closed to traffic you need to hear what is going on around you.
You also risk disqualification as some races operate this policy.
