    I'll put this here. Some might find it interesting. There's the athletics angle, the football angle, and the Alicia angle.

    A 400mt challenge.

    Hard to figure out how fast he ran as they edited out bits of the race. She's a low 52 runner but was definitely holding back. 54/55 for her. Maybe 58 for him?

    Folks.

    Any ideas for Covid-19 restrictions related templates for events or has it been done to death?

    eg chipped timetrial/races over a set course.

    -(Level 3) one race per hour with 15 people.
    -mini races to get racing in + overall timetrial times.
    -Next races seeded based on last times.

    Covid-19 controls might included two arrival/departure carpark places so two consecutive races dont intermingle.

    Might be useful for club races or an alterative official or unoffical event.

    Any thoughts? Other ideas?

    I'd save your energy and not bother trying to organise anything, as negative as that may sound. Level 5 is only a matter of time and you'll only cause yourself lots of headaches. :(

    I know, but something to prepare for and look forward to late winter/early spring etc when hopefully the skies clear a little.

    What I don't quite get is why people aren't (maybe they are!) organising little challenges with the max amount of runners allowed. In June I think it was, a few of us organised a 5k and then a 10k 'race'. There were 8 or 10 of us for the 5k and half a dozen for the 10k. There wasn't that big a gap in terms of times and ability. I can imagine clubs would have more runners very close in that regard - we were just a loose group of running buddies.

    I guess anything less than 6 runners and it starts to lose its appeal.

    We might look to do a marathon next month actually cos a few of us were planning to do Metz this Sunday and it got cancelled with 4 days notice! I'll have to get the all clear from the Doc, and more importantly, the wife before doing it.

    Thanks in advance

    As everyone's yearning for races seems to be increasing by the day, I find myself trawling YouTube for major marathon TV broadcasts just to remind/inspire myself of the buzz of a big race day.

    Came across footage, complete with splits, from the lead vehicles of Bekele's near miss at the Marathon WR in Berlin last time out.

    Prob not for everyone, but I enjoyed it. Quality of picture really gives you a good taste of Berlin on marathon day.

    Jez that brings me back. I remember when I was a teenager I used to go into Virgin Megastore on the quays and spend all my wages from my p/t job in a video shop on Viz t-shirts.
