The Race Organiser's back doing what he does best
Busy programme of autumn and winter events announced
The Race Organiser (TRO) hasn't got a single race organised for the rest of the year – he's actually got more than 20 contact-free, COVID-secure events lined up for you to test your post-lockdown fitness and boost your training with a powerful injection of targeted competition.
Back in January, we announced an increased programme of more than 100 events for The Race Organiser's 2020 calendar. Then coronavirus made an unwelcome appearance and soon all events were virtual or cancelled.
TRO was nimble and reacted to the challenge with a series of well-supported Race Ready virtual runs and the innovative and fun City Scramble events that mashed up running and treasure hunt formats in 27 towns and cities.
Now it's time to get real with a cheery wave from our Draycote Water competitor pictured above to illustrate just one of The Race Organiser's measures to keep us all safe – starting in waves. This simple expedient, along with smaller races, enforced social-distancing and contact-free collections enable TRO to announce a revised programme to get us up and running again.
A visit to the refreshed The Race Organiser website will reveal races from 5K to 20 miles in London, Surrey, Berkshire and the Midlands this autumn and winter.
The first event off the blocks is the Dorney Lake double-date this Saturday 5 and Sunday 6 September. Runners dominate the Saturday programme, with five distances to choose from 5K to 20 miles, while Sunday sees the multi-sports enthusiasts and lake swimmers in action.
It's 'chocks-away' at the Imperial War Museum for Duxford Dash 5K & 10K near Cambridge on 13 September and the Draycote Water 10K is on the same day in Warwickshire. TRO joins forces with AAT events for The Fox Ultra at Godalming on 19 September and the first month of autumn concludes with The Chilterns 10K on 20 and Henley 10K on 27 September.
