July "Virtual 5K/5M" invitation to all RunningAHEAD members (Read 1120 times)

    Hi, All! It's time to sign up for July's Virtual 5K/5 Mile race! The dates will be a bit extended due to the holiday. The race is open from Sat. July 1 - Tues July 4. This means that any time during that period you can either run in a "real" race or mark out your own distances and race them. Then, post back here with your times. You MUST submit your time between July 1 and July 5. (Times posted before July 1 will have penalty minutes added on to them by the race director, and times posted after July 5 won't be eligible for placement at all.) There are two divisions to the race - a 5K (which is 3.1 miles for any complete newbies out there!) and a 5 mile division. Pick one (or both!) and sign up for it before the first race day in order to get your virtual t-shirt. For those of you not familiar with a "virtual" race, we had our first last month - check out the thread at http://www.runningahead.com/frm_topic.aspx?id=1c3befbfaf064fe38fff38742dd1fe10. It was a lot of fun. Our 5K course record is held by mbotti at 17:02, and the 5 Mile record is held by Pron8r at 36:41. Sign up and join the fun! Tell your friends! Run like crazy and then come back and brag! PS - anyone want to volunteer to make the refreshments this time? I heard someone found cat fur in their water last time and threatened to sue if the caterer wasn't changed...

        Well I suppose I should come back and defend my 5k title Big grin I am racing a 5k on the 4th of july so this works out perfectly Cool Count me in!! Matt
          I think I would like to move up to the 5 mile race this time. I will be on vacation, but still running, 6/26 through 7/4. If I have access to a computer, I will post my time, if not I will get in the following month. Undecided

              Hrm... sure, I'll sign up. I might DNS, but it's for a good cause, right?
                This looks like it's going to be a very small race this month! So far we've got: 5K: Wingz Mbotti Zoom-zoom 5M: Hawkrunner Mile Collector Hey! I just noticed it's only Zoom-zoom and me vs mbotti. Hey, mbotti! How about giving us gals a head start? About 20 minutes? ::blink:: ::blink:: Smile Or maybe as race director I'll split it up by gender lines this time... heh heh heh... Evil grin

                  I plan to run a 5k on July 4. However, I have a marathon 4 days later, so I will probably not race it.
                    I'm in. I think I'll go 5 miles on Sunday. Is there a prize for who goes the slowest? Big grin
                      Updated list: 5K: Mbotti Zoom-zoom Trent "not racing" Wink ttmalek aswindon 5M: Hawkrunner Mile Collector Clancy ttmalek Sorry, Clancy, there isn't a specific prize for going slowest... but right now (unlike me!) you've got a good chance of placing in the top three! Big grin Last time I made a prize for all "particpants" but I was the only one who didn't place... Sad I think we should keep including "participants" prizes... Smile

                            Wasn't he just PRECIOUS in that race packet photo? Big grin Unfortunately the dinky little photo editor I have doesn't really get rid of little kitty deamon-eyes... But aside from that, he's perfect! By the way, can you tell I had too much time on my hands last night? Smile
