A group of Claygate residents and local runners have come together to organise a virtual running race this year in the absence of any physical running race in Claygate due to COVID-19. The aim of the race is to raise much needed funds for the "Garden Project" on Claygate recreation ground. 100% of profits from the race will go to the Claygate Recreation Ground Trust charity who are overseeing this project.
The race is 5 miles long and takes place through the beautiful countryside that surrounds Claygate- through woodlands, fields and roads. The course is mainly off-road and is undulating towards the end.
The race takes place between Sat 4th - Sun 12th July and starts/finishes on Claygate Recreation Ground, Church Road, Claygate, KT10 0JP. You can run the race at anytime you wish throughout this period.
To register, submit a donation (we suggest £5 for adults and £3 for children). Please gift aid your donation where possible. Once you have done this, go to https://data.opentrack.run/en-gb/x/2020/GBR/r5ftr/ to register yourself on the race.
Results: To register your result. Load you result onto Open Track. Take a picture of yourself at the beginning/end of the course (same location). If you think you are in medal contention, take a picture of a device with the miles and completion time displayed or send STRAVA data or similar. Email the above (photo and time evidence) to the team at firstname.lastname@example.org. If entering the parent/child categories, state who the results should be linked to. Share that you have taken part with your friends and family and encourage others too as well via social media or otherwise.
