Gavin’s Lockdown 2.0 Virtual Race Schedule

Following yesterday’s statement that athletics can claim no special exemption from the recent lockdown rules for November, we’re going to be out of action for a little while. Consequently all organised activity at the track and clubhouse will cease.
Sad, but we need to do our bit to protect each other & our NHS. In the meantime, be safe, be kind. Check in with your clubmates and friends.
To help fill the four weeks and keep some fitness and competition levels going, I am going to organise one virtual race per week:
Week 1: Thursday 5 – Wednesday 11 November 
5K (3 miles 188 yards)
Week 2: Thursday 12 – Wednesday 18 November
10K (6 miles 376 yards)
Week 3: Thursday 19 – Wednesday 25 November
Marathon (26 miles 385 yards or 42.19K)
Week 4: Thursday 26 Nov – Wednesday 2 Dec
5 miles (8.05K)
So, before you fall off your chair, the marathon will be the quickest 26 miles 385 yards you run throughout the week in total; the other weeks have to be one-off attempts, although you are allowed as many attempts as you want, the quickest counting. For example, your marathon could be run in one go (why?!), two lots of 13 and a bit, two ten milers plus a 10K (and a teeny bit), seven runs of just under 3 miles, or any other combination of your choice, it’s entirely up to you.
Your permitted period of exercise can be taken from home, in the woods, round your garden, anywhere permitted under government guidelines.
Then send your time (minutes & seconds) for the whole distance and date of birth by email to gavin.collett@jti.com by midnight on the final date of each race and I’ll produce a “race” result every Thursday.
There is no need to send me any proof, description of course or links to any others site such as Garmin, Strava, I won’t open them. I trust you all!
Any ages, any standard, for members, friends and family of Hillingdon AC.
Please spread the word.
