Team 5K and Time Trials

Lindsey Farrelly has another update on what some of us have been up to:

Lockdown Team 5K

Well done Team B!

24 club members took part in our very first 5k virtual team challenge in May. The challenge saw participants split into six teams of four. Everyone was given a handicap based on their most recently logged 5k/parkrun time. Team members then ran a 5k on a course of their choice at a time of their choice. Our superstar number cruncher and self confessed spreadsheet queen, Caroline B, crunched the numbers and added the team results together. The quickest team, aptly named Team B(rilliant) with a team time of 63 minutes and 19 seconds!

The challenge brought about lots of banter, lots of laughs, hours of endless fun trying to find the quickest courses and some even managed more than one attempt! It was a great way to do something for everybody with juniors, seniors, veterans, speedy runners, distance runners and everyone in between involved!

We’ll be repeating the challenge in the first week of June, this time using May’s 5k times as the starting point.
