Back To Race List

This weeks Thursday club gives runners the choice of taking on a 10km (staggered start based on your expected finish time, quickest runner goes off last and tries to catch the runner that went out first!)

The course will be the “Back Loop” in Mondello, so the 10km will be 6 laps of this loop.

 

If he full 10km isnt for you, why not look at the 2 person relay option, split it up however you wish (3 laps each, 2 lap/4lapm it’s up to you). This is a great option if you would like to treat your race as a session (3 x 1 mile, recovering between each one as your partner does his or her mile!)

 

Start Time: 7pm

Beautiful AGAINST THE CLOCK Medal for all participants
