Hello Guys I hope you all doing well in these strange times normally we would be in the middle of the busy road racing season I know I am missing it all and know many of you are as well. So while its not perfect by any means we wondered what we could do ? Virtual running as grown in the last few years some people prefer it others use it to top up their actual races. So with not being able to meet and race we thought for this year we convert our races into virtual races and give you a chance to compete with your peers and show your bling off and keep the interest going we know its not perfect and we would rather be racing face to face but best we can all do in these strange times. Full results for all races , bespoke medal and several spot prizes throughout the races.
We are restarting the NSRRA season with the St Thomas Virtual 10k on June 14th. Why a virtual race? Well its looking unlikely we will be able to hold any events this year so this is a way of helping clubs and organisers, giving runners something to aim for and obviously some NSRRA points.
At present we have 7 races signed up with decisions on others in the pipeline. If this is a success we will make sure we have 12 races in our programme with your best 8 to count.
So what do you have to do? You enter the race as normal using the links on our website. On the day you run a 10k from home, within 48 hours submit evidence of your run to Andy Vickerman at avtimingstaffs@ gmail.com a normal set of results will be produced and Paul Clinton will produce the normal league tables. Please do not travel to Tean to run the course and in the spirit of fairness please do not choose a course that is predominately downhill. The run must be a continuous run/jog/walk.
A bespoke medal will be sent to all finishers. Added to this if you take a photo of yourself at the finish of your run and send to firstname.lastname@example.org Bryan will produce his normal set of race photos.
Should we be able to start normal racing then we would revert to normal participation of events
You don’t have to be part of NSRRA to take part but you would be welcome to join us.
