IT'S THE THIRTY FIRST ANNIVERSARY RUNNING OF THE CALDERDALE WAY RELAY, BRITAIN'S BIGGEST CLUB RUN OFF ROAD EVENT AND WE ARE, ONCE AGAIN, OFFERING A FANTASTIC £1,800 OF BONUS PRIZES FOR RECORD BREAKING TEAMS AND PAIRS.

WE HAVE SET TARGET TIMES, BASED UPON THE EXISTING COURSE RECORDS AND ADJUSTED FOR DISTANCE CHANGES. IN ALMOST EVERY CASE, THE TARGET TIMES ARE SLOWER THAN THE EXISTING RECORDS (WHICH WERE SET IN WINTER CONDITIONS). WE WANT THE TARGETS TO BE FAIR AND ACHIEVABLE.

THE BONUS PRIZES ARE:

£300 FOR ANY OPEN OR MIXED TEAM TO BREAK THE OVERALL COURSE RECORD/ADJUSTED TARGET TIME OF 5:40:00 (record 5:34:46)

 

£300 FOR ANY LADIES TEAM TO BEAT THE LADIES RECORD/TARGET TIME OF 7:10:00 (record 7:02:11)

 

THERE WILL ALSO BE £100 BONUS PRIZES FOR ANY PAIRS THAT MANAGE TO CRACK THE RECORD/TARGET TIME FOR ANY INDIVIDUAL LEG. THERE WILL BE PRIZES FOR RECORD BREAKING MEN'S PAIRS AND LADIES' PAIRS.

 

TARGET TIMES FOR THE LEGS IN 2015 ARE

LEG 1   OPEN 1:08:00   LADIES 1:25:00 

LEG 2   OPEN 0:53:00   LADIES 1:06:00

LEG 3   OPEN 0:33:00   LADIES 0:45:00

LEG 4   OPEN 0:59:00   LADIES 1:14:00

LEG 5   OPEN 0:49:00   LADIES 1:01:00 

LEG 6   OPEN 1:04:00   LADIES 1:20:00

 

WE HAVE SET THE TARGET TIMES TO BE FAIR AND ACHIEVABLE AND, IN ALMOST EVERY CASE, SLOWER THAN THE EXISTING RECORD. FOR INSTANCE, THE LEG 3 RECORD OF 32:23 WAS SET BY SUCH AN OUTSTANDING PAIR OF ATHLETES THAT IT IS UNLIKELY EVER TO BE BROKEN...UNLESS A CERTAIN PAIR OF FELL RUNNING OLYMPIAN SIBLINGS HAVE A CRACK.

 

SO, THE CHALLENGE IS THERE, WE'VE PUT UP THE BOUNTY, IT'S OVER TO YOU NOW. GOOD LUCK.
