MAC 5K TEAM CHALLENGE – THURSDAY 16th JUNE 2022
The Senior Endurance 5k Team Challenge returns for 2022. For the benefit of new members or those who just can’t remember, what is this thing? Well, this is a team event where everyone will set off at the same time and run the same distance. Like a race! The scoring system will allow a winning team to be determined. It is just a bit of fun, though, an excuse to push yourself over the 5k distance.
Points will be awarded to runners based on finishing position. First overall runner home scores 1 point for their team, second overall scores 2 points, etc. Points will be totalled up for each team with lowest total winning. So, to be clear: finishing position is key, not time.
Attending members will be split into one of three teams at the start of the session using an ‘old school’ method. Coloured stickers will be provided to be worn front and back, to make team identification easy during the race.
Only current members of Motherwell AC and ‘trialists’ can participate. All are encouraged to participate, regardless of pace. Everyone is welcome and everyone will be cheered across the line.
No pre-entries are required for this event. Anyone wishing to participate should just turn up to training on Thursday as normal.
This event will be the club training session for Thursday 16th June. Please meet at the Strathclyde Park Watersports Centre at 6.30pm. The action will commence after teams have been formed and everyone has had an opportunity to warm-up.
The route to be used will be the ‘old’ Strathclyde parkrun route. That is, high path coming out of the woods, playpark loop, low path on return.
