Dinton Pastures 5km/10km Summer Series 2020

We were notified today by Dinton Pastures that we can not host any events there in May or June 🙁
Races 1 & 2 of the Summer Series are to be VIRTUAL races.
Every finisher for our June virtual event will receive a wooden medal, white chocolate & raspberry TRIBE protein bar and a free downloadable personalised certificate - what more could you ask for from a run from your front door??

Virtual Event FAQs
1. What time frame do I have to complete the virtual event?
7 days from the planned event day, i.e. Thursday 11 - 18 June
2. Do I have to run the planned event course?
No, you can run any 5km/10km route/course you choose (except down a mountain!)
3. Where & how do I upload my result?
a. Click Here to get to the results page (ensure you click the correct distance)
b. Find your name on the list (which is populated the day before the event start). N.B. there is more than one page of names per distance.
c. Click "EDIT TIME" on the right of your name.
d. Complete the form - press "Submit". A link to your activity via Strava/Garmin/MapMyRun/Apple/Fitibit is fine 🙂
Your result will show against your name. Once we have verified (usually within 12 - 24 hours) your result will show in the correct ranking/order.
4. Will I still get my t-shirt if I entered all four events?
Yes, we are working on getting these printed as soon as we can and will get them sent out to you as soon as we can.
5. Will I be able to see how my time fares against someone else?
Yes, the results will be uploaded onto a results page here.
6. Will there still be Series results/rankings?
Yes, your times from the virtual events for races 1 & 2 will be included in the overall series rankings if you do all four events. There will not be trophies for the virtual races, but there will be overall series trophies.

Failure to do so has predictable results. From the moment you enter this event further costs are created therefore there are no cancellation reimbursements or refunds.

The course follow a lovely off-road, traffic-free route around Dinton Pastures Country Park, near Hurst, Reading, to clock up 5km, or go round twice for 10km. Either way, it’s pancake flat and if you enter more than one race you’ve a great chance of seeing that PB come down month by month!
The more races you enter the cheaper (& more fun!) it becomes!
