August "Virtual 5K/5Mile" invitation to all RunningAHEAD members (Read 968 times)

    Hey, all! It's time to pre-register for August's Virtual 5K/5Mile race! For those of you who are unfamiliar with this, simply go out and run either a 5K or 5 miles. It can be at a race, or your own course if no race is handy. Then submit your times and I'll compile them into our own RunningAHEAD race results page! Dates for the race are Aug 5 - 6. Try to run during that weekend - if you must run earlier, pretend you didn't, ok? Wink Submit your time from Aug 5 - 7th only. Times submitted too early will be penalized with extra minutes tagged on! Times submitted late will miss getting posted! Sign up for the race by replying to this post! It's free! It's fun! See you there!

              Hi There, I'm very new to both this site and running and therefore apologise in advance if I have done something wrong. I would very much like to sign up for the 5 mile virtual race that will be held early August. Please can someone tell me where I post my time etc. Many thanks Rich

                    I would like to sign up for the 5 mile race. Sorry I wasn't able to get my time in for July. Thanks.

                        Well, crap...I wish I were doing a 5k, instead of a 10--I could actually win that division! Big grin k

                            I'm up for that. Have been very lean on the threshold running stuff so will try to have a crack at the 5M title!!! .....oooh!! am starting to feel the burn already!! I'll be 'pretending' to do my run on 5-6th so will do one before then as I'll be Long Running at the weekend. Only one month 'til my first half at that point so got to stick with it right??!! Good luck everyone, FC
                              Hi! Gotcha on the 5M. Congrats on the new son! So you're training for a HM? Join us on the HM training blog also in this forum! Janell

                                Sign me up for the 5M too. Is it possible to extend the race period from just the weekend to any time during the week? I do my long runs on the weekend and I'll be running slowly no matter which 5 miles I use for the race.
