Monthly 5km Handicap Race

Tigers,

This will be our last monthly 5km race for the year and then we start again in February so hope you can make it!

How it works?:  Each person decides on a time they think it will take them to run the 5km around the outside of Century park.  We write down each persons time and stagger the starting time for each person so that it should mean we all finish around the same time.  The time each person takes for this month will be recorded and used as their benchmark for the next months race.  

IF YOU DIDN'T RUN LAST MONTH CAN YOU PLEASE SEND AN E-MAIL TO ME OR GABRIEL VIA THE MEETUP MENTIONING THE TIME YOU THINK YOU WILL RUN SO THAT WE CAN HAVE THE ORDER OF PEOPLE STARTING SORTED BEFORE THE DAY.  THIS WILL MAKE IT RUN MUCH SMOOTHER AND WE GET STARTED FASTER!

Who is it for?:  Everyone!  As you will be competing against your own time (not other people) the aim is for you to better your 5km time each month.  This means you can walk or run or both.

What do I bring?:  Yourself and water.  The run is FREE!

What do I do with my belongings I bring?:  We will have a time keeper and bag watcher so if you have things you need to leave at the start when you run we will be able to look after it.
