Virtual 5k round-up

Virtual 5k round-up

Hi everyone

A big thank you to everyone who took part in our virtual 5k challenge last week and a special thanks to Tim Palmer for organising the event and collating all the results. We had a good number of people taking on the distance and some great times to boot! It’s very tough running a 5k on your own at race pace and takes a lot of mental toughness to do it so big kudos to you all.

The results were based on the highest age-graded time calculated on the world master athletics factors to make it a bit more competitive. The men’s winner was our rising star Chris Larkin, well done on a great time, we hope to see you in a green vest soon 😉 First overall for the ladies was Debbie Read who had a superb run to get the highest age graded score overall, well done Debbie!
