As Damian outlined in last week’s email, next week sees the start of Eagle AC Summer Series 2020 ( Virtual Edition!)
There will be one 5 mile race each month for May, June, July and August. Members will have a 3 day window to complete each run:
Race 1: May 20-22
Race 2: June 17-19
Race 3: July 15-17
Race 4: August 19-21
Members can send details of their run each month ( eg. Garmin ,Strava screenshot) to Damian ( firstname.lastname@example.org), Mairead ( email@example.com) or Ruairi (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Members are asked to wear club gear if possible during their run and to please send on photos.
All those who complete all 4 runs will be entered into a draw for a range of spot prizes – vouchers etc. There will be various other spot prizes throughout the series also.
The emphasis on this series is on fun and the main idea is to get members out and feeling part of the Eagle AC community. No race times will be published. However, to track your own progress over the summer months, members may wish to run the same 5 mile route every month. Hopefully we’ll all be getting faster on each attempt!!
Of course, all those taking part should strictly adhere to current HSE guidelines at all times during their runs.
For those who do have a Strava account we have an Eagle AC group for those who wish to join. It’s open to all club members and is a great way for us to stay connected with each other during these times.
Window for the first run in the series starts next Wednesday 20th May so start getting the runners and Eagle gear ready!!
