Easter Juvenile Team Challenge - Week 1 - Ending Friday 2nd April 2021
With the resumption of some level of juvenile training on the horizon a few of the coaches have devised a challenge to get us all into the active mode.
A 100k challenge
Sounds like a lot. But don't worry. We will organise people into teams of 10 or more to create a bit of competition.
A team member can do anything from a half a k to 2k (u10's) older athletes can so distance from a half k to 4k (if you do more than this you will only be credited for 4k).
This can be done from one day a week up to 5 days.
It is submitted to Carmel Kelly and she will add this to the chart and whatever team reaches 100k will be the winner.
We will have a prize for the first team which we will reveal during the week.
You may submit up to 5 runs a week but must do at least one. The longest run that we allow is 4k (if you run further that's great but we won't score it😊)
If you are not feeling great start with a short run - 500m to get you going. We will add blocks of 500m to the spreadsheet. For example 1.5k or 3.5k.
Updates will be added on Tuesday and Thursday evenings and Sunday.
It is possible for a team to do the 100k in a week but its more likely it will go into week 2.
Don't rush at it. Aim for 2 or 3 times a week at least.
This week's RESULTS are in:-
Leaping Lizards 101.5k
Laughing Llamas 81.5k
Speedy Snakes 69k
Galloping Gazelles 76.5k
Racing Rhino's 59.5k
Crazy Cats 76k
Mighty Monkeys 74k
Diving Dolphins 75.5k
Swift Swans 87k
Elegant Elephants 82. 5
CONGRATS TO THE LIZARDS BUT A SPECIAL MENTION TO THE ELEPHANTS WHO LOST A RUNNER THROUGH INJURY BEFORE WE STARTED.
And most enthusiastic morning runner SENAN Traynor
