Race Yourself 2021

Anyone fancy another club challenge for the new year? Introducing: ‘Race Yourself 2021’ – two distances, 5k and 10k, run throughout 2021 (starting tomorrow) with the results being based on overall % improvement so the playing field is well and truly level.
If you took part in the Lockdown Extravaganza then that time for each distance will be your ‘baseline time’; if you didn’t take part, then the first month you submit a time will be your baseline.
Each month you just have to run the distance using your own personal runs, races or parkruns (if they restart) and submit your time on our website form (many thanks to Chris Chorley for this).
Results will need to be submitted by 23:59 on the last day of each month and be based on % improvement from your baseline time. Results will be published ASAP on the club website, Facebook group and newsletter.
Runners can take part in one or both events or even alternate, it’s up to you. This is all about getting out there and running to improve individually with a bit of healthy competition thrown into the mix.
You can start whenever you like and can skip months but there will be bonus points for the more months you complete.
The competition is open to all club members and as results are based on % improvement rather than time, men and women will compete together.
As always it’s always great to see your posts on the Facebook group. If you’re also sharing your runs on other social media it’d be great if you could mention the club (@bbdrc on Insta and Twitter) to help spread the word.
If you have any questions please feel free to email me.
..and Happy New Year!
