🎯 BRR Virtual Championships 2024 🎯

🎽 Challenge 1/11 - February 5k: Base Set GO 🎽

 

 

This FIRST challenge is an opportunity to set the scene for the Virtual Championship (VC) season ahead, and test out those base paces. Whether you are a VC old hat (starting where you finished), or whether you are new to the VC and/or running with BRR, it’s all ready for you to score BIG on this first challenge. And remember, we have Club Championship (Alexandra Parkrun 5k) and CLGP (Bolton 5k) races this month that are the perfect opportunity to get off to a good start.

Run/walk for 5k anywhere, anytime (return/out and back or loop). Whether you are stepping out for speed, elevation, or pleasure, have fun this month and enjoy those February mornings and evenings as they FINALLY get lighter and brighter!

How our Virtual Championships work

 

Within the Virtual Championship 2024 there are 11 Virtual Challenges Feb-Dec. You need to complete 5/11 to qualify.

 

 

NEW 2024 CHALLENGES AND FINISHER BADGES REVEALED SOON!

For each Virtual Championship challenge (Feb-Dec) points are given. Points are calculated based on the difference between your set ‘Base Pace’ and your submitted challenge effort each month. You will see that when your set ‘Base Pace’ matches equally with your challenge effort an award of 100+ points is given. Your best effort points for each challenge will contribute to the annual Virtual Championship points table. You need to complete at least five challenges to qualify for a position on the Virtual Championship table.

 

Base Pace - this year there are a number of base pace options depending on if you participated last year, or if you are new to BRR/running ….

 

  1. Using finishing Base Pace from VC 2023 (e.g. BRR member that has already set base pace/rebased in VC 2023)

  2. Using Power of 10 best 5k from 2023 (e.g. New to VCs but runner for BRR or prior to joining Burnden running for an EA affiliated club)

  3. Using own run specified 5k based on BEST effort in 2023 (e.g. New to VCs and new to Burnden /club running)

  4. Using first 5k 'Base Set GO' challenge (e.g. New to VCs and new to Burnden/club running and would like to use Alexandra Parkrun/Bolton 5k BEST effort to set the base pace)

 

IF YOU NEED HELP SETTING OR DECIDING ON YOUR BASE PACE, OR NEED TO CHAT ABOUT CHANGING IT PLEASE SPEAK TO CHERYL AND/OR IAN (or email: captains@burndenroadrunners.co.uk)

 

Each month the Virtual Challenge will include a set distance to run/walk and sometimes an agreed route, although these will be minimal to offer as much flexibility as possible.

 

While completing the Virtual Challenge you will need to record and save details on your preferred device (or manually). Don't worry if your distance goes slightly over/under or doesn't exactly return to a start point, there are no penalty points.
