On Monday 23 April we will be holding our annual Predictor Race.
Similar to the monthly Handicap Races you will register on the night and as you do you will write down the time you think it will take you to complete the course. You will then set off, en masse, without any timing or distance devices – no watch, garmin, pedometer, fitbit, MP3, sundial or anything else that fits the description. The person closest to their predicted time will be declared the winner. Last year we had joint winners, Martin Bates and Peter Bartlett, both were just 10 secs out, but 5 mins 30 secs apart with their finishing times.
You can set yourself whatever pace you wish, flat out racing pace or gentle recovery jog.
The race will be over 4 miles but under the Summer Handicap distance of 4.9.
There is a Trophy up for grabs, and maybe more than one prize!!
Finally, yes I know it is the day after the London Marathon, it is on the same day as last year when 43 Members completed the race with approx. 10 others volunteering as Marshalls. For this year I will need a similar number.
If anyone would like some more information please get in touch.
