Thanks to everyone who has so far agreed to take part in the Interclub Challenge. There is still room for more - the more the merrier. We will all meet at the Gin Pit after the race for results and refreshments in the shape of pasties and cakes.
Here's a reminder of the event. Teams will be announced the week of the race.
We look forward to seeing you there...
A&T will host this event at Gin Pit - meeting at 6.30pm for a start time of 7pm
This is intended to be a light-hearted, fun challenge and is designed to involve runners of all abilities across all three Clubs.
The competition will be run as a 3-runner per team relay event. The distance covered by each runner equates to approximately 2 miles.
1. Runners will be selected into teams of 3 of equal abilities.
2. Each team will decide themselves who runs which leg.
3. When completed, the finish times for each team will be combined. The Total best times for each club’s teams will then be added together to give the overall result. Regardless of the number of teams entered only the same number of teams for each club will count. (e.g. if A&T enter 10 teams, Swinton 8 and Burnden 12, only the top 8 teams for each club will count so that the scoring is consistent). The team with the lowest overall time will be the winner of the challenge.
4. A minimum of 5 teams per club is required to make the event a success.
There is no pressure on anyone to produce spectacular times, just run your best for your club and that's good enough, the main focus of the evening is as a social event.
