Tuesday 15th June 2021
Following a successful team relay event last month… June sees something different. A team challenge. What’s that? Well, rather than team members running in sequence, 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 runner home scores 1 point for their team, second 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 [on LoveAdmin] and approved ‘trialists’ can participate. All are encouraged to participate, regardless of ‘pace’. Everyone is welcome.
No pre-entries are required for this event. Anyone wishing to participate should just turn up to training on Tuesday as normal.
This event will be the club training session for Tuesday 15th 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 Strathclyde parkrun route.
