RRH Audax Challenges (December 2020 to April 2021)

These challenges were initially planned to be held over the Christmas and New Year period but Lockdown 3 put a stop to attempts so the completion date was extended until April. There were three events in all, all very different. Karolina provided two, one a circuit around the Duffield area and the other an urban challenge around pubs in Derby. Steve Leach provided the third, a circuit based on Ticknall in South Derbyshire. Here are the results.

RRH Virtual 5km Easter Egg Burner (26th April to 2nd May)

An age graded 5km blast with some great times recorded.

RRH Tribute to Roger Bannister (3rd to 9th May)

On May 6th, 1954, Roger Bannister became the first person to run a sub 4minute mile. This was a straight forward 1 mile time trial to see if you could emulate Rogers achievement! (Not age graded.)

RRH Judge your Pace Challenge (10th to 16th May)

You were required to run between 6 and 10miles, and each mile had to be the same pace. A formula was used to calculate the winner (deviation/distance) based on peoples mile splits and speed profile.
