The idea is that juniors challenge themselves by running a measured 1, 2 or 3 mile course of their own choice. There are no races going on at the moment so this is the closest we can get ! The Challenge will be kept open at least until “real” races start up again.

Key points of the challenge are

• parents/juniors will need to devise a 1, 2 or 3 mile course which should be measured accurately using a tracking device (eg garmin watch, Strava or other i-phone app)
• please ensure the course is safe for your child with no danger from traffic & no trespassing on private land etc.
• the course can be circular, multi-lap or point-to point and on any terrain (but if on road, see note above re traffic). Please make sure the course isn’t significantly “net downhill” (ie finish at lower altitude than start)
• juniors can run their course whenever they like. Once they have done so, please post the details on the junior facebook page quoting “1/2/3 Mile Challenge” We will need to know

o child’s name & age

o distance run (1m, 2m or 3m)
o elapsed time
o amount of ascent/descent (if possible)
o route description or map (eg from strava)
o photos and brief reports would be great

• if any juniors choose a very hilly route (eg up a fell), they will be rewarded with “King of the Mountains” points !
• I’d recommend that juniors attempt the 1 mile challenge first. That will probably be far enough for our youngest ones. Older ones may later want to try the 2 or 3 mile challenge too.
• juniors can have as many attempts as they like at the challenge and try to improve their personal bests. Please post the details of each attempt and I will keep a record on our junior website so they can track their progress
• leave a gap after each challenge to allow time for recovery. I’d advise no more than 1 challenge per week (or 2 at most)

We’re looking forward to seeing the results coming in !!
