RK July and August Sessions
Please read all the way to the bottom to find out about payments and booking.
The June Team Challenge has gone very well and I am now planning RK sessions in July and August. I have a few different thoughts to hopefully engage as many of you as possible. I appreciate that some of you will be nervous about running in groups whilst others may have different work times / child care issues etc which will prevent you meeting at set times. So I am hoping my plans will offer something for everyone.
1. Return of Continuous run groups.
These will be in groups of 6 - 1 leader and 5 runners. The meet venue may alter and the time will be dependent upon leader availability. There will be information available regarding the distance, terrain and pace of the run and I will provide regular runners with guidance on which groups to book into. You should not attend if you - or someone you live with, are experiencing COVID-19 symptoms. If you are unable to attend, please remove yourself from the group. Each runner should attempt to maintain a 2m distance from the other members of the group.
2. Interval sessions
These will again be in small groups but there may be some flexibility in the group that you run with depending on the leader of the group. Again you will have to book in - the time and meet point of the group may differ each session. You should not attend if you - or someone you live with, are experiencing COVID-19 symptoms. If you are unable to attend, please remove yourself from the group. Each runner should attempt to maintain a 2m distance from the other members of the group.
Please see below, suggested groupings for continuous runs and intervals where possible. Yes, you can change groups. The idea is that you - where possible - will be pushing yourself in RK sessions, whether continuous or interval. You can do the social runs at other times. But we are not at school so please just book in for a different group if you would rather.
3. Virtual races
For both July and August I will offer virtual races. These can be done as a one off or a block of 4 races - each one a different distance. Prizes will be awarded to top 3 male, female and a small number of age group prizes.
The July distances to complete and submit your best times for will be;
5K, 10K, 10miles, Half marathon
The August distances to complete and submit your best times for will be;
1mile, 5miles, 15K, 20K
4. RK Attendance Awards
Running alongside all of the above are the continuous monitoring of attendance. After completing 50 RK sessions, runners receive a RK mug. After 100 runs, runners receive a RK 100 t shirt. Dave Ward is very close to attending 250runs and he will receive a hoody.
There are a number of runners who are due mugs and T shirts and these will be passed on in the coming weeks; to date…
Completed 50runs - Karen, Craig, Jo Lenderyou
Completed 100runs - Grace, Andy C, Maura, Cathryn, Lucy, Louise
As you can imagine a lot of time and money is spent by myself and the leaders in orgainising prizes, running the club and the sessions. Therefore the above will only be available to those that are paid up members of the club. To make this as easy and cost effective as possible for the short term the only option will be £6/month paid directly into the RK bank account;
Lloyds - 309915; 28079360; Run Knutsford
Please include your name and ‘subs’ when you make your payments
Leaders and KTC members are exempt.
