We’re pleased to announce this year’s summer Road Running Series for all members of the TVH Endurance Group.
To stimulate a bit of friendly competition we’re going to institute a league table, with handsome prizes at the end of the season for the best female and male competitors.
We’ve selected 10 races over a range of distances to make up the competition – your best seven results will count, There are also bonus points for the Scrubs parkrun (even though it’s not strictly road running).
The competition is being administered by Tracy Barlow, Andrea Broughton and Andrew Mitchell. We’ll keep the league table updated via the website – we’d also like to put reports on the website after each race and so will be nominating people who are entered to do a quick write-up afterwards.
Below are the chosen races and the scoring system – let Andrea, Tracy or Andrew know any suggestions for improvements.
