Corona Virus – Solo 5k Challenge Leaderboard

5k solo run leaderboard at the end of week 2. Well done to everyone and especially Irene Clements, first female and overall leader with a time of 20.51 and age graded score of 89.22%.

The leading male is Conan McCaughey with an impressive time of 14.52 and 86.99% age graded score. Keep them coming and remember it’s age graded so the fastest time may not necessarily be the leader ????????. Anyone can enter, just visit page and read the pinned post for details –

Any one can enter but please pay strict attention to social distancing guidelines during your run. It does not matter how fast or how slow you are, it is about keeping the training motivation in these difficult times.

To enter just reply to the latest leaderboard post or use the ‘message button’ at the top of this page and enter your time, age and the Garmin or Strava link to the activity or pic of GPS watch screen with 5k run details. (Exclusively downhill 5k routes will not be recorded). One time per person only may be submitted each week commencing Sunday to the following Saturday.

At the end of every month commencing 30 April 20 and until restrictions on racing are lifted, I will be offering a prize to the top male and female athlete on the leaderboard of a FREE runners MOT. This involves a complete review and analysis of current training and outline recommendations and plan based on goals and targets. You can take this yourself or offer it to a friend. Only one prize per athlete so if the same athlete leads again at the end of month 2, then the second place athlete will be awarded the prize.
