October "Virtual" race sign-up - 5K, 5Mile, 10K (Read 1038 times)

    Hi, all! Come sign up for the October "Virtual" race at http://www.runningahead.com/groups/virtual/Forum/8716288640c34c5f871c77c5ec777449. We've got enough people participating now, so there is now a 10K division as well as 5K and 5 Mile. "Race" weekend is October 7th & 8th. Post your times between Oct 7th - 9th to be counted in this month's results! Times can be posted at http://www.geocities.com/yanelh/results_form.html. See you there! Janell

      A couple questions for a noobilicious (patent pending on that word) "virtual racer": If we can't find (or are too lazy) to find a race this weekend, you trust us to pick our own mileage? If I pick my own mileage and use this site to map the course and it's too short - can we blame Eric? Do the runs *have* to be on Oct. 7/8? (I noticed somebody's doing all three ... and that looks like fun. Is it cheating to run them on, say, the 6th, 7th, and 8th?) Most importantly, if I back out because of a stupid injury, will I be mocked, ridiculed, and pelted with overly ripe vegetables?

        It's completely on the honor system, so yes, we're trusting you to report your times accurately and if you're not in a real race to run the correct distance on your own. (By the way, you can blame Google, not Eric, if there's a problem with the mapping distances!) There's no prize money or actual awards, so if you want to lie and hurt your on-line credibility, well, that's your problem. I operate on the assumption that people are honest until proven otherwise. It makes life a lot simpler. If you're caught cheating in a "Virtual" race, well, I guess we just wouldn't let you race with us anymore! You've got that sub-15 minute guy on the brain, don't you! No it doesn't *have* to be Oct 7/8, but that's the weekend we're asking people to shoot for. If you can't run in a race on that weekend, it's okay to submit an earlier time. Just make it as close to the date as possible. If you're talking about Daddyo, I think he's already run two of the race times he's planning to submit. We might razz you a little bit, but most people here understand about not being able to run in a race while you're hurt. If you sign up and can't make it, I'd ask you let me know somehow - either by stating so on the results-form or by posting so in the forum. That way I won't be waiting for your results. Welcome aboard!

          I was hoping he might give me some tips! Big grin All right, put me down for all three. I'll do it on the 6/7/8 or 7/8/9. I'll repeat this on that official thread, too, so you find it. Thanks for the welcome - should be fun!

                    Would there be beer involved? Big grin Anybody know why we have a "black eye" icon? I find myself mildly disturbed. And vaguely amused. All at the same time. Black eye Black eye Black eye Black eye

                              Hi Wingz - I ran a half-marathon today - can that race be added?
                                Much as I would enjoy seeing Jake try to run a half marathon right now... Evil grin I'd like to see at least two people with HM times to turn in before adding another division - not much of a race if you're the only one in it! Is there at least one other person out there who'd reading this right now that would like to submit a HM time? Times within the last month will be accepted... Speak up! runningluke - if no one else sees this and speaks up before the results are posted for this month's race, hang on to that time and we'll include that distance next month. It's such a short notice that people might not be able to squeeze in their replies before the results come out. modified to add: go ahead and submit the time at http://www.geocities.com/yanelh/results_form.html. I put a note out on the HM trainers board and I bet someone will bite... It's worth a shot. If not, we'll definitely put it out next month because I know there are a lot of HM runners this month...
