Virtual Races 2021

The YVAA Virtual races are going to continue all the way through 2021, irrespective of whether actual proper mass participation events are allowed to start again or not.

We are changing the format slightly so that in 2021 you will only have one distance to cover each month (not two as in 2020). The distances will change each month so for January it will be 5K and February 10K.

Hopefully lots of you will be able to find time, especially as the evenings lighten, to run one Virtual Race each month.

You will have to Register just once for the whole year (free of charge) and then submit your best time for that month, towards the end of the month, when a link to provide your result will be given on the YVAA website and the YVAA Facebook group.

Jason will again be posting each month’s age graded results as previously but this time there will be a year long Championship. You will have to submit a minimum of 9 results from the 12 months possible. Your best 9 months counting if you submit more than 9.

It is hoped that this will allow people to complete enough results for the series even allowing for the odd injury, illness or dare I say holiday!!!!!!.

Even though the entry is free we are going to supply medals for this Championships.

If we are allowed, then small groups could meet to do a staggered start race together. Chasing or trying to keep ahead / hang onto others always makes you run faster.
