Saturday 7th August 2021
The fourth MAC Team Relays for Senior Endurance take place next month. This will be exactly the same as the event back in May that seemed to go down well. So participating athletes will be formed into teams, and each team member has to run one leg of two miles. First team home wins.
Only current members of Motherwell AC [on LoveAdmin] and approved ‘trialists’ can participate.
Anyone wishing to participate (or to help out on the day) should indicate in the MAC Members Facebook group or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. The closing date for entries will be midnight on Tuesday 3rd August.
Participating athletes will then be formed into teams with the intention to make all teams as similar in overall ability as possible. Teams will be announced by Thursday 5th August. Team size will ideally be 4, but this depends on the overall number of participants.
It is up to each team to decide on its running order. The only requirements are that each team member runs at least one leg, and each team must run four legs. So for incomplete teams, team members may run additional legs in order to complete the relay.
Members who do not enter prior to the deadline are still welcome to participate. But by not entering they cannot be placed in the initial team allocation. Instead, they will be used to make up any incomplete teams, replace injured runners, or make up their own team on the day with other non-entrants. In the worst case scenario, they can run the two miles for the individual challenge.
ON THE DAY:
This event will be the club training session for Saturday 7th August. Please meet at the Strathclyde Park Watersports Centre by 9.30am. The action will commence at approximately 9.50am, and certainly by 10am.
Please make every effort to wear your MAC vest. If you do not have one, please make this known so something can be sorted out.
If you can also bring some safety pins for the home-made race numbers, that would be appreciated. Some will be made available, but possibly not sufficient for all.
The route will be a mini version of the Strathclyde parkrun and can be viewed here: https://www.plotaroute.com/route/1537352
