Thought I'd kick this off.

Three races of varying lengths:-
Making use of the Addidas trail you can run 5.4km, 10.4km or 15.4km (all distances approx)at each of the 3 races.

27th November 2005, 8th Jan 2006, 19th Feb 2006. I can't make the 27th November but I have eyed other events at Mallards Pike and fancy a run in the forest.

Trevor we will back to make your life a misery, <Bet you can't wait!!>

Have been looking at this, Trevor if you are about can you enter on the day for the November one as I'm not sure at the moment whether I can make it or not.

Hmmm...dates might be a problem for me...Chilly Duathlon 27th Nov, possibly Gloucester 10 on 8th Jan(???), 19th Feb Dursley Dozen AND Muddy Woody 6...and I owe the Gloucester 10 and the Dursley Dozen a damn sound thrashing :o)

MtB's a bit quick you know.

Outstanding at Suicide Six on Sunday!!

well if he is quick - then he may stand a chance of the series prize - a cool £100

The races are based on a points system.

i.e if you win the 15k you would earn 1500 points

if you win the 5k it would be only 1000 points.

Only a slight hill in the course.

Was wondering how the points worked. Do you get points for 2nd, 3rd, 4th ....?

Blazing sunshine?!?! Is that going to appear between the snow blizzards?
22/11/2005 at 16:54
yep - depending on the number in the race you will receave a % of the winners score.
i.e. if there are 10 runners and you came second you would get 1350 which is 10% less.

At the final race in February the Male/female top scorers will win the overal prize.

Well race 1 down which seems to of been a success. The winner in the 15k event was very quick. (so was the female to be honest)

Hope some of the local gang can takcle the next one

I live in the forest so would quite like to do this one. Are you expecting many runners on the november race? and what sort of time am I looking at on the 10km one to avoid humiliation?
