Race Series Race 1 - Machrihanish MOD Runway

posted 19 Apr 2014, 10:00 by Enquiries campbeltownrunningclub
The fist venue of the SKSC Hub 2014 Race Series (previously known as Wee Toon Runners Race Series) will be the runway route at Machrihanish MOD.  This is the same route as race 1 in the 2013 race series and was very popular with over 60 competitors entering the race.

Below are the details:

Race 1

Date: Tuesday 6th May 2014
Venue: Machrihanish Mod
out towards The Sound of Kintyre past Darlochan Farm. Ist on your left sign posted Machrihanish Mod.
Time: 1900hrs.  Please arrive by 18:30 sharp to allow time to get to the runway.
Distance: 5K

Cost: Free for CRC members.  £1 per race for non CRC members.

Unfortunately the race is no longer organised by Donald Campbell as he is focusing on working with juniors and their own race series.  CRC have formed a sub committee to try and carry on the good work from the previous years.  Thankfully we still have help from Suzy, Alison, Val and Marjorie to keep us right!

Please note that this year each race will be run over 5K (3.1 miles) rather than just 3 miles.  We have received some feedback from members to increase to 5K since it's a more recognised distance for races.  This is the only change to the format and each runner will still receive a handicap time for the races.

If you are interested in participating then could you either respond to the post on Facebook or e-mail raceseries@campbeltownrunningclub.com?  If you have never competed before then please could you provide an estimated 5k time to enable us to calculate a handicap time.
