RK Winter Series 2018/19
It is finally here……….This month sees the start of the RK Winter Series. Below you will find further details, any questions, please ask. The targets will be posted on Tuesday.
Following the 1 mile time trials, each runner’s predicted times for other distances have been calculated. These were calculated using the Jack Daniels running formula; this approach is widely used by runners as are his training techniques. They’re very accurate! These distances are as follows: Marathon, Half Marathon, 15K, 10K, 5K, 3 Mile, 2 Mile, 3K, 1600m, 1500m.
These will be posted onto the RK Facebook group and blogged so you can see your targets.
Over the coming weeks, ending on 13 February 2019, runners can participate in a number of timed runs organised by RK. You may also include up to 2 other runs (e.g. some runners may choose a 10K race such as Tatton 10K instead of a 10k that RK organise, there’s also Wilmslow 10K, Park Runs, etc.).
Times for those organised by RK will be captured; for other run events, runners should send their times to firstname.lastname@example.org
All times will be logged and uploaded into a master spreadsheet
The target is to run some of these and beat your predicted time. If you do beat it, the % by which you do so is calculated. If you run outside of the time then you do not score.
There will be a number of timed runs on each of the different days – you can choose to do all of them or less. Your best 5 will be used to calculate your overall score – this will be the sum of the % improvement of your 5 best performances.
There will be prizes for the winners.
