Throw Back Thursday

This time last year we were doing this…

Virtual Marathon relay

Throughout May teams of four discussed tactics on how to train and run their virtual routes of 10.5 k each. The challenge being to be the team with the most consistent splits.

All in aid of our chosen club charity for 2020 The Salisbury Hospice

Under normal circumstances pacing a team would be much easier, but our runners were based all over South Wiltshire, some using various parts of Salisbury Plain, others using local village routes.

Some runners chose to run 2x loops of 5.25 k and others had the option of run/walking, and due to social distancing rules, none of us could train together.

As this was based on consistency rather than speed, everyone was fully engaged on the goal – Bragging rights and the chance to be awesome for the day…..

Come race day and after 10 weeks of the club being in lockdown, it was great to see the selfies come flooding in, smiling faces flying the team colours once again.
