On Friday 19th Sept, normal training was replaced by a night of timed 200m and 1500m (600/800 for younger runners) races. The idea was to have some competitive timed races within a friendly no pressure environment, and give people who may never have raced on the track a chance to do so, as well as encourage a bit of friendly rivalry. within the club.
A big thanks to everyone who turned out to run and for the many volunteers to helped out on the night. Its fair to say there were a few teething issues with this being the first time we have tried something like this, however hopefully everyone enjoyed themselves none the less, and lessons have been learned should we do anything like this again. The results are up, but we did have some timing issues so if you spot any mistakes let us know.
We would welcome any feed back. Would you like to see more of these sort of events, perhaps on a different night, rather than replacing training? Let us know at training or send us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
