With training suspended again due to COVID-19 and the new Tier 4 restrictions, it seems like a good time to kick off this month’s festive Time Trial. It will be a ‘virtual’ 5K timed run where you can run on your own, or with one other person from outside your household in accordance with Tier 4 guidelines. Festive outfits (and post-run selfies) are optional and very welcome.

The Time Trial is open to all Road Running groups plus other members from across the Club. Road Running groups already have their routes mapped out (check with your coach). If you’re not in a Road Running group, you can map out your own 5K route.

This event will take place between 21st Dec and 31st Dec. Results will be published on the website.

Coaches, please collect your group’s results and send these (with any festive selfies!) to . Individuals running their own 5k routes can also send their results to this address for inclusion.

Have a good run. For those that have done this before, let’s see if you can improve on last month’s times.

We wish you a safe and enjoyable Xmas and New Year, and look forward to seeing you all in the New Year when restrictions allow.
Paul Dallison (RR Secretary) and the RR Coaching Team.
