Virtual WRRL 2020 Race 1

Format: 5K Virtual Race

WRRL Club Members

How to Enter
Enter via the link below. Use your EA Number and also select your Club when entering.
Run a 5K local to you, on a safe route and maintaining social distancing.
Submit your result using links from Strava or Garmin of your activity.
The platform will then collate results in a similar (but not identical) way to how normal WRRL results are organised (Club Competitions and Age Categories)
Eligibility is EA affiliated athletes. It’s free to enter as the platform is funded via EA membership.
Note: The Virtual Race series will not replace the WRRL 2020 but provides an opportunity for competition whilst we are all unable to race as normal.
To allow people time and space to train and run their 5K the race window is open for the whole of May 2020.
Please share any issues/feedback encountered when entering. It’s a fairly new system so there may be some teething issues we need to workaround.
If this idea proves successful and restrictions remain in place for mass participation events then a 5 Mile Event will be planned for June.

Runners of the Month – May 2020

Neelam Gill
Andy Hudson
Luke Morgan
Lewis Sheward

"In a month with no proper racing going we're going virtual racing and distance to find our Runners of the Month

The Warwickshire Road Race League has lost all fixtures this year so has switched to a Virtual format, with the first race being a 5K in May. The format worked really well and KR were rewarded with wins for the Ladies senior and masters teams, with the men coming second in both categories. Our first two RoMs are Luke Morgan and Lewis Sheward who placed 1st and 3rd in this 5K. Two young lads, we're excited about what they can do in the future

Within that same event, Neelam Gill managed to record a 5K PB, though I'm afraid that will have to remain unofficial until she can do it in a proper race. She's also been working on her shorter stuff over 1K and 1M, so watch her go when the time arises

Final RoM goes to Andy Hudson who achieved the challenge of running 100 miles in a week, a monster feat

Well done to Luke, Lewis, Neelam and Andy"
