Participants will run these according to the latest Scottish Athletic Guidelines (Currently these need to be solo runs).  There are advantages to running in pairs and groups when possible and DRC will update in advance of each event as to what the latest guidelines are.

 

Rules

  • All events will be in accordance with appropriate SA guidelines which will change from time-to-time.
  • Updated guidance will be issued before each event window starts
  • Participants must be members of DRC for the 21/22 season.
  • Participants can enter all or any number of events so if you miss the first event please join in when you can.
  • Runners need to run the appropriate distance on a course of their choosing
  • Start/finish must be and close as possible to each other, e.g. Holywood Stroll route would work for a 5 mile.
  • There must be no more than 10m height loss, i.e. it can’t be a downhill route.
  • If using laps, each lap must be at least 1k or 0.62mile in order to avoid miss measuring on watches/phones. (except for magic mile)
  • Magic Mile can be done on the track, 4 laps plus a wee bit at the start of first lap approx. 9m, where the curved line is.

Results

  • Runs must be recorded on Garmin Connect or Strava.  By far the easiest way would be to register with Strava and join the Dumfries Running Club group.

Prizes   

  • The club will be using this in place of standard Grand Prix so the usual shields etc. are etc are up for grabs
  • The best 5 results will count for Individual prizes.
  • Age group will be decided by your age as of 1st Event.
  • Prizes will be allocated to 1st 3 males and females in each age category as per normal GP.
  • There will be additional Team prizes for each event on offer to spice things up and keep everyone interested and in the mix for prizes.
  • Teams will be drawn for each event based on estimated times. This will be done after the registration window closes for each event.  
  • Team prizes will be on each event.
  • Teams will be mixed men’s and ladies.
