Ryston Winter Endurance Series 2020-2021

The Ryston Winter Series is a closed series of events for members of all ages over pre-set courses on a mixture of terrains through the winter months (November 2020 to April 2021) set out to try and give us all a reason to get out there and enjoy our running with the ongoing pandemic.

Each month on the club website there will be precise route instructions and a map for the run/runs of the month. Runs should be completed in your own time (if we can organise something at some point then we will - see below), bearing in mind government guidelines at the time. As soon as you have completed a run you should forward confirmation (screenshot of GPS if possible) of your time either below via the form or to Jane by Facebook message or email (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.).

Members completing a minimum of one of the runs in at least four of the months will receive a memento.

There is no limit to the number of attempts of each course each month so if you think you can go quicker then have another go!

  • Running fast and/or getting high % age-grading
  • Taking part in the event and getting into the spirit of its intent
  • Consistency
  • Improvement

This is all designed to be a bit of fun. Please treat it that way. 

Any questions should be directed to Jane (Road Running Rep) or Rob (Club Chair).
