Event post by: Graham Morris
Category: Social events
Event Venue: Roefield - Clitheroe
Event Time: 6:45
Who's invited?: All are welcome
Details: Summer Handicap Race followed by meal and presentation at The Edisford Bridge Pub.

Date Tuesday 6th August 6:45pm

Venue- Roefield Sports Centre Car Park, Clitheroe

The Route - Ribble Valley 10k course

Cost -No charge for this event, but members will have to pay for their own food and drink.

Format Each runner will submit their estimated race time for a 10k. This time should be their best 10k time OR a fair time that reflects the runners current form. The time should be rounded down to the nearest 30 seconds. (EG 42:49 = 42:30). Each runner will set off at different times (slower runners first)
EG Runners that would expect to finish the 10k in 60 minutes would set off at 6:45pm whereas those with an estimated time of 45 minutes would start at 7pm etc. hopefully creating an exciting finish. In theory everyone has an equal chance of wining if they run to their usual race pace.

Please support this event we need lots of runners to make it a success. Please run in your club vest.

Although you can just turn up on the day it would be a great help if you can let Graham know beforehand if you are running and also your estimated 10k time

There will be lots of prizes including a booby prize for the runner that finishes far faster than their estimated time, not a prize you want to win, so be fair with your time!!!
