Saturday 22nd May 2021
The third MAC Team Relays for Senior Endurance take place later this month. What is it all about? Well, this time it will be a REAL relay. There will be nothing virtual about it! 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 should indicate in the MAC Members Facebook group or send an email to email@example.com. The closing date for entries will be midnight on Monday 17th May.
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 on Wednesday 19th May. 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.
This event will be the club training session for Saturday 22nd May. Please meet at the Strathclyde Park Watersports Centre at 9.30am. The action will commence at approximately 9.50am.
The route will be a mini version of the Strathclyde parkrun and can be viewed here: https://www.plotaroute.com/route/1537352
