Strava Art Competition

New Virtual Competitions for May

The 5 x 1 mile relay challenge starts this week.

I have allocated the first 35 people who said they were interested to teams of I hope, approximately equal strength based on mile times recorded this week. I may have to adjust the teams if my calculations are wildly out. I know one or two of you said that you were not able to start straight away and that is not a problem as I will adjust times accordingly. If anyone else wants to join in please let me know and I will do my best to fit you in.

The rules are very simple - send me your fastest mile (or fastest 2 consecutive kilometers) of the week by Sunday evening and I will work out the overall time for your team for the week. 

The team times will be published in the newsletter each week. If you can't run for any reason or you don't submit a time I will include an average of your previous times for the week. 

In addition I will publish the five fastest individual times from each of the following categories - men, ladies and juniors. To set the ball rolling the fastest five men who sent in times were  Rob Wigley (05:26), Tom Almond (05:38), Duncan Mallison (05:47), Adam Parkin (06:21) and Steve Cheesman (06:31). The fastest ladies who submitted times were Ginevra Stoneley (06:43), Gillian O'Regan (06:56), Usha Stevens (08:53), Adriana Collins (10:18) and Kate Knight (12:00). The fastest juniors were Max Orchard(05:48), Robert Duncton (07:02) and George Duncton (08:08).


Monthly Climbing Challenge

Charlie Butcher leads the climbing challenge with 1972 metres. Adrian Grant is in second place with 1263 metres, narrowly ahead of Fran Dunham with 1243 metres. 

A Challenge for this week

Run or walk the shortest distance to take in road or street names that begin with the letters R,P,A and C. Please note that this does not include the words Road, Avenue or Crescent. As an example Ringley Park Avenue would count only as an "R".
