Subject: Virtual Frostbite.
We are going to run a Virtual Frostbite League with the following proposal:
The suggested Virtual Frostbite dates are the 2nd Sunday of the month:
To make it six we could include a further Sunday in January. Given that there are 5 next year, we are thinking about 31st Jan.
Again, one event for seniors and one for juniors. I will apply for virtual permits so each event will be licensed.
Runners can run at anytime on the Sunday with seniors doing 5 miles and juniors 1.5 miles as the normal league.
Competitors much respect social distancing rules but are permitted to run in groups of up to six.
Each competitor is responsible for uploading their own time to an online form, the link for which will be given to clubs and also available on the website and facebook page. All times to be uploaded by 6pm on the day of the run. If clubs wish to collate then I can provide a spreadsheet format but again these would need to be submitted to me by 6pm.
Normal scoring applies with 3 ladies, 3 men and 4 either m/f to make up the 10 senior scorers. For juniors again 2 girls, 2 boys and a further runner either m/f to make up the five scorers.
If a team does not have the required number of scorers missing positions will be calculated based on normal Frostbite rules. Therefore if 200 run, all non-scorers will be added as 201.
We may award extra points based on how many runners a team submits, thinking about that one!
The results will be sorted and a league table prepared. This is just for fun so no trophies or RoS awards but a bit of friendly fun.
I appreciate not everyone is into virtual events but hopefully we can encourage people to take part on a bit of light competition.
I won’t be asking for proof of times, but should we find a budding Mo then I would expect the time to be replicated next season at Bourne Woods!
Hopefully, clubs will take part, but please don’t feel any pressure to do so. As before, this is for FUN.
Please have a thought and discuss in your clubs and let me know if you would like to take part. Also let me know if both seniors and juniors or just one class.
