Harriers Virtual Time Trial League! Starting December 1st 2020
The club competitions are currently suspended because of the Pandemic, but a new internal competition, Harriers Virtual Time Trial League, will be starting on December 1st. Details below:
The competition will start 1st December 2020 and finish on the 31st March 2021. It will consist of 5 routes (2 off road, 3 road) within a six mile radius of Congleton. Three will be familiar, two not so, but will be easy to follow (recce runs will be arranged).Two are classic 5k and 10k distances others are not. Detailed rules are attached, but simply put each route can be run twice and points will be awarded for PB's and for attempting to try to better a PB.Your base PB will be the first time you run a course and will receive 3 points, next time you run it, if you beat your PB you get another 3 points, if not you get 1 point. You can run a course more than twice but only your PB and your next best time will qualify for points.
The points will form a League table which will be updated so you can chart your progress and at the end of the season the Male and Female champions will be declared ! There will be trophies for the winners and for 2nd and 3rd Male and Females. Prizes will also be awarded for the most improved PB's on each course in Male/Female categories i.e. 10 prizes.
So everyone young and old has a chance of bringing home a prize. At the sharp end it provides the chance for some serious competition and for the mere mortals of the club there's the chance to get out there and have a go but still with a chance of winning the league ! ?
