During the year we hold in house Time Trials. These replace the normal Wednesday run on the appropriate days, which are usually the third Wednesday of the month, but are varied to suit other races. During the months when it is dark at 7.30 we use a 5km course which is well lit and in the summer months a 5 mile route which is semi-rural.
**Please note that use of headphones in club events eg time trials is prohibited, including bone conducting versions** (please refer to our Health and Safety page for more details)
One of the objectives of this series is to allow you to gauge your own level of performance by regularly running the same route.
The scores are calculated on a handicap basis using your actual running time against an individually calculated target time. The winner will be the person who shows most improvement or consistency in the year, so anyone has a chance of winning this trophy. Best 5 results to count. You also need to have volunteered to marshal at one race.
An explanation of the target time calculation can be found here.
