On Friday 30th December, we shall have our annual 5km handicap event for club members only.
It’s free to enter, and your start times will be adjusted based on your best 5km performance of the calendar year, such that everyone will finish close together, making it a real race to the finish line!
You must enter in advance! This helps us set up the starting order. Have your best 5km time of the year ready to submit when you enter, along with a link to your Strava activity, or the event’s results web page, etc if possible.
Not done a 5km this year? Use your best performance from a different distance, and we shall make an equivalent calculation using an online race-equivalent-calculator.
We will use two 2.5km laps around Bournville from Rowheath, detailed in video and Strava links below. Start time will be approximately just after 11:00 for the first starter, with others following behind.
Those of you who are in your best form of the year will be in a great place to win. Prizes are available for the first few finishers, and for whoever wears the best pyjamas! Festive snacks for all.
