SCOTTISH ATHLETICS VIRTUAL DISTANCE CHALLENGE II

Unread post by Frank McLaren »

The next Scottish Athletics virtual challenge is the Club Distance Challenge II to take place on Friday, 29th May 2020 to Monday, 1st June 2020. The challenge is the most distance covered in a 15 minute run or a 30 minute run.

Athletes in U13/15 age groups must run for 15 minutes only; U17 and over can run for 15 minutes or 30 minutes.

Scoring Categories:-
(1) Total Distance by Individual Age and Gender. This category ranks individual athletes in each age group and gender category running the furthest in 15 minutes or 30 minutes
(2) Total Distance by 4 Person Mixed Team – 4 x 15 min Runs. This team category ranks teams of 4 athletes (from the same club, same age group; 2 male and 2 female) who covered the farthest distance for their club in 1 hour.
(3) Total Distance by 4 Person Mixed Team – 4 x 30min Runs. This team category rank teams of 4 athletes (from the same club, same age group; 2 male and 2 female) who covered the farthest distance for their club in 2 hours.
(4) Total Distance by Age Category. All distances from all runners in each age group category count towards the club’s distance for U13, U15, U17, U20, Senior and Masters.
(5) Total Distance by all Club Members (U17 to Masters). Every extra kilometre counts in this total club distance category, which adds up the distances run by all members of all ages and genders to give one club total.
(6) Total Distance by all Club Members (U13 and U15). Every extra kilometre counts in this total club distance category, which adds up the distances run by all members of all ages and genders to give one club total.

Your result:-
(1) Performances should be submitted online to scottishathletics by the athlete taking part and state the distance covered in KILOMETRES
(2) Athletes must make their runs PUBLIC on their Garmin/Strava profile to allow results scrutiny.
(3) Club results are calculated using combined valid runs by registered club members within the challenge timeframe.
(4) In the team categories, the farthest runs over each 15 min or 30 min run by athletes from the same club will contribute to the ‘A’ team. The next best results will make up the club’s ‘B’ team, and so on to include all athletes competing. Clubs can enter as many teams as they wish.

Safety:-
(1) Athletes MUST avoid popular running/walking routes or busy parks.
(2) Be considerate to other people by keeping a 2m (minimum) distance at all times when passing.
(3) Do not drive somewhere to run.
(4) ALL runs must start and finish at around the same point – either lapped or out and back.
(5) Lapped courses must not include laps of less than 1km.
(6) Runs MUST be completed solo, other than U13 and U15 athletes who should be accompanied by an adult: under 13 athletes must be supervised by a responsible household member at all times, and under 15 athletes should be accompanied if appropriate.

All details can be found on the Scottish Athletics website.
