The first ever Virtual MAC Team Relays for Senior Endurance take place later this month. What is it all about? Simply, participating athletes will be formed into teams, and each team member has to run the event distance of 3k. The times for all team members are combined, and the team with the quickest overall time wins.
Only current members of Motherwell AC [on LoveAdmin] can participate.
Anyone wishing to participate 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 Monday 18th January.
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 20th January, prior to the run window opening. Team size will be 3 or 4, depending on the overall number of participants. Late entries may be invited to help make up full teams.
The run window for this will be Thursday 21st January at 00:00 until Sunday 24th January at 17:00.
Any location can be chosen for the run as long as there is no net downhill elevation to the route. The start and finish points should be close together. Loops can be used, but loops must be at least 1km in length. Out and back routes are also acceptable.
Times for the 3k run (preferably with a GPS activity from Strava/Garmin/etc) should be posted in MAC Members Facebook group or sent to email@example.com. The deadline for submitting times will be 18:00 on Sunday 24th January.
Results will be collated and posted as soon as possible after the submission deadline on the Sunday evening.
There are no prizes, just the respect and admiration of your teammates. It’s just a bit of fun to help us get through January.
