RR Harriers male club captain James Ward has arranged the following events for club members to participate in during the ongoing Corona Virus pandemic.
RRH 5km Winter Warmer (18th to 25th January)
The challenge was to complete a local 5km run as fast as possible with the results age graded.
RRH Hilly 10km Challenge Mk 2 (25th to 31st January)
The challenge was to run a maximum of 10km starting and finishing at your own front door getting in as much ascent as possible. Unlike the previous challenge in November 2020 running repetitions up the same hill was not allowed!
RRH Virtual Marathon Challenge (1st to 7th February)
The challenge was to run 26.2 miles during the week either as a one off run or multiple runs adding up to the marathon distance. The total time was then factored depending upon how many runs you took to complete the distance and then age graded to produce the final results.
RRH Tribute to the Alsager 5 mile road race (8th to 14th February)
This challenge was a tribute to the famous Alsager 5 mile road race traditionally held in February. The idea was to run 5 miles as quickly as possible with the results then age graded.
RRH Takeaway Special Points Challenge (15th to 21st February)
The challenge for this points race was to find as many traditional take-aways as possible in your local area starting and finishing at your own door within a maximum distance of 10km. Points were scored for traditional chippy’s, Chinese takeaways and Kebab shops.
RRH Virtual 3km Interval Challenge (22nd to 28th February)
The challenge was to run 3km as an interval session e.g. 5 x 600m, 10 x 300m etc within a maximum duration of 45 minutes with the results being age graded.
RRH Spring Selfie (1st to 7th March)
The challenge was to take some selfie photos with a Spring theme. As it turned out the weather was less than Spring like that week!
RRH Virtual Random Relay (8th to 14th March)
This challenge was a relay run for teams of four runners over distances of 3, 4, 5 and 6 miles. The times were age graded and a Joker card could be played to reduce one runners time by 20%.
RRH Virtual Half Marathon (15th to 21st March)
This challenge wasn't age graded but the results count towards the RRH Championships.
Please follow government and England Athletics guidelines on your runs.
And above all, HAVE FUN 😊.
