Keeping You Running
March 24, 2020
Lots of you have contacted us to say how much you are struggling with what is going on in the world right now. We know it is affecting you all in many ways. Whilst we know that for some of you running may be the last thing on your mind we have received many messages from people wondering how they will cope and just how critical it is for their mental health and sanity.
Races have been cancelled all of the world, running clubs halted and gyms are now closed for our safety…..so what can we all do?
You must stick rigidly to the strict guidelines issued by the Prime Minister in relation to running(alone, or with one member of your family who you live with.)
Please also follow advice in relation to runner safety >>>> RUNNER SAFETY
Free Virtual Race… INFORMATION
We have welcomed many runners over the years at our events, without you all we would not be where we are today, for that we are truly grateful. We felt that this was the time to offer something out to you all for FREE as a thank you for all of your support and commitment over the years. We also want to give you something to focus on and get you through this difficult time.
WE have been working with Results Base who take entries for and time all of our races. There is a solid commitment that we will jointly invest our time and effort at absolutely no cost.
We have created several distances that you can enter for FREE just like a proper race. You can enter AS MANY OF THE DISTANCES AS YOU LIKE.
You can also enter your times again and again if you run faster, just follow the instruction in your e mail.
The distances will be:
- 1 Mile
- 5 Miles
The races will start now and run until midnight on 12th APRIL (this is when the Prime Minister will review the guidance to the Nation) – we will then give you an opportunity to enter again for MAY.(subject to Government guidelines).
HOW IT WORKS
You will be able to view other PARTICIPANTS, A LEADER BOARD and all RESULTS once runners have inputted them. The on-line entry system has the optional facility for each runner to upload a screen shot of their gps.
No medals, tee shirts, goody bags….just a free race.
No prizes will be awarded, just a few fantastic spot prizes.
We stress that social distancing instructions from the Government MUST be followed. If this changes we will of course cease this initiate.
