Club Championship 2020 – COVID Update and Virtual Races

Hi all,

Those of you on Facebook have seen that the races that make up the Club Championship in 2020 have been rightly postponed to a later date. This means that we’re in a bit of a limbo! But no more! We’ve created a couple of Kirkstall Harrier only Virtual events recently, including a 10k (completed) and now a 5k. See Facebook or the 2020 Races page for more information.

The aim of these virtual races is to allow you to continue to exercise, but in a safe environment. I appreciate not everyone is able to participate as they are isolating themselves, for those in that situation, I hope you’re well and staying sane! I hope to see you soon.

The rules are fairly simple, run a set distance in a loop (or several or on a treadmill), starting and finishing at the same spot (to avoid downhill routes) and no more than 15 minutes away from your home. Entries are to be either from a watch or a strava/garmin page showing your time and route.

The Virtual 10k has taken place over the past two weeks, with the 5k in full swing now. For the 10k, we had 24 members submit a time. As it wasn’t “race” conditions, a suitable consistent difficulty score has been applied to your handicap time. The top 3 times against their handicaps are as follows:

Position Name H’cap Time Diff Time Points
1 Hannah Claire 01:02:59 15.27% 00:53:22 50
2 Mark Phillipson 00:49:44 13.94% 00:42:48 49
3 Nick Child 00:56:54 12.72% 00:49:40 48

The full race results, and all results from this years championship can be found below.
