Anyone who knows me and the club will understand this is a fun inclusive competition which all members are encouraged to take part in. All abilities are respected and you can walk or run these challenges. Whatever you do please take part and join in the fun. I admire those who find running more difficult and still have a go at these competitions than perhaps those who take more naturally to running, but at the same time I think its fantastic we can support and be pleased to see the club’s runners of all abilities getting some amazing times. A 15 minute mile to a 5 minute mile, its all good and to be celebrated.
The records are being updated by Chris Campbell in 2023.
All events will count so if we have 2 events in a month, they will both be included.

The fastest will score 100 points and the slowest will score 25 points. All the others are scored evenly between 25 and 100. For example, if 6 ladies took part the scores would be 25, 40, 55, 70, 85 and 100. If 4 took part then it would be scored 25, 40, 75, 100.
