Main article: 2012 Championship 1

This is a list of the 2012 Championship 1 season results. Championship 1 is the third-tier rugby league competition in the United Kingdom. The 2012 season started on 11 March and ends on 30 September with the Grand Final at the Halliwell Jones Stadium in Warrington.

The 2012 season consists of two stages. The regular season was played over 18 round-robin fixtures, in which each of the fourteen teams involved in the competition played each other once at home and once away. In the Championship, a win was worth three points in the table, a draw worth two points apiece, and a loss by less than 12 points during the game earned one bonus point. Defeats by more than 12 points yielded no points.

For one year only, the top four teams at the end of the regular season, Barrow Raiders, Doncaster RLFC, Whitehaven RLFC and Workington Town, are promoted to the 2013 RFL Championship, as part of an expanded 14-team division. However, the champions of the division will be decided through the second stage of the season, the play-offs. The top six teams in the table contest to play in the Grand Final, the winners of which will be crowned champions.
