Kinross RR virtual challenges extended to March
Virtual runs based on club's real life events provide focus for newly extended Lockdown 2.0
Kinross Road Runners have extended the deadline to complete their lockdown friendly virtual challenges. Runners now have until the first of March to complete any or all of their four virtual running challenges based on the club’s three ‘real life races’– with a marathon added for good measure.
Each of the challenges has its own unique medal, with all four fitting together to create one large work of wooden art. Made by The Workshop in Aberfeldy, the medals must be added and paid for (£4.50 each) at the time of registration.
The Loch Leven Half Marathon Challenge is based on the club’s most popular race. Those taking on the 13.1 mile challenge can run, walk or cycle the distance anywhere they like – but ideally not on the actual LLM route itself. For an extra challenge, participants can add in a minimum elevation of 407ft – just like the real race itself.
The Path of Condie Half Marathon Challenge is based on the toughest of the three club events. Runners, walkers and cyclists up for the ‘full POC experience’ should aim for a minimum elevation of 1224 ft.
At just 5.2 miles, the Milnathort Dash Challenge is based on the club’s shortest event, and can be run, cycled or walked full on, or at leisure, with or without the minimum elevation (394ft) of the actual race.
At the other end of the scale from Milnathort is the KRR Marathon Challenge: 26.2 miles of running, cycling or walking on any route, done in one go, or in sessions.
Participants are encouraged to post their results, ask questions and share pictures of their challenges in the club’s Virtual Challenge Facebook Group, which also hosts the current leaderboards.
To encourage everyone to take part, and to thank participants for helping them support their chosen charities, Kinross Road Runners will also be giving away entries to their 2021 events to 15 lucky registrants: five each for Loch Leven Half Marathon, Milnathort Dash and the Path of Condie Half Marathon.
All profits raised from the four challenges will go directly to the club’s chosen charities.
