The Bungay Black Dog Lockdown Extravaganza
- This event if for BBDRC members only.
- There is no charge to enter.
- The results also contribute to your Age Grading for 2020 (as there haven’t been many races…)
- Your age is just used to calculate your percentage age grading and will not appear in the results.
There are four distances to run/jog between 9th November to 6th December – there is a different set distance each week of lockdown – and now an extra week free – 10 mile and Half Marathon 7th to 13th December
- There will be a different distance assigned to each of the 4 (5) lockdown weeks. I’ve chosen four of the shorter distances as it should be more achievable for all. And now two extra distances, which will not count for the competition but will allow age grading.
- w/c 9th November 5k
- w/c 16th November 5 mile
- w/c 23rd November 1mile
- w/c 30th November 10km
- w/c 7th December 10 mile and/or Half Marathon
- Each week you run that distance and submit your time above.
- Each week there will be results and winners based on the percentage of World Masters performance corrected for age, male and female (announced in newsletter)
- Overall male and female winners will have an award at the end of the event.
- Bonus points available for a PB or completing the distance for the first time.
- 4 bonus points for doing all 4.
- Any event will count as an age grading qualifying time to supplement any that have been missed due to lack of events (although age grading submissions will still be made at the end of the year as normal).
We don’t need to see you on Strava or any other platform. We trust what you tell us; you sleep with your conscience, we don’t.
You can repeat your run as many times as you like within the week and simply re-submit your results.
The Sensible stuff
You know this already.
- Please take part safely and follow current government guidelines regarding social distancing and infection control.
- Select your route carefully, taking into account time of day and length of time that you will be running for and presence of traffic and pedestrians. We advise you to wear high visibility clothing. Please don’t have anything in or around your ears which can interfere with hearing traffic and other road users.
- Make sure you are well hydrated and warmed up sufficiently before your run. You may wish to carry additional water. Please ensure you take inhalers and any other items that you may require with you. In very hot weather (ok, maybe not in November) we would advise you to avoid running in the hottest parts of the day.
- If you have any doubts regarding your fitness to complete the event, please speak to your GP.
- In case of accident or injury, we recommend that you take a mobile phone with you. Make sure you inform someone of where and when you are going and advise them when you return.
- Carry an ICE (In Case of Emergency) card or have the number stored in your phone.
