Continuing our Club Virtual Series into the autumn and winter

Unfortunately we have to abandon our efforts to hold the final two races of 2020 – the AGM 5k and the Xmas 10k. Both would have been held at Simister. However, because of COVID protocols we would not have been able to use the village hall in any practical way. This was the case, even before the latest round of tiered restrictions on activity.

Phil, Irene, Dave, Ian and company in more sociable times. Ta to Linda McDermot.

Therefore we are suggesting that we continue our monthly Club Virtual Series into the autumn and winter. We are proposing to use the distance of 3 kilometres for our endeavours. Our feeling is that doing a solo 5 or 10 kilometres every month might be a stride too far. In addition we would encourage continued involvement in John and Helen’s long-standing weekly 2k series. You might well combine a 2k and 3k effort.

Given that the Club Series thus far has been significant in keeping our collective spirits up I am concerned about members, who have been perhaps excluded by their absence from the Internet. I’ll liaise with Roy and Dave as to whether we can find a way round this dilemma.

Let me say too that we would really pleased if our Scotia friends, together with Ray, Martin, John,Denis, Graham, Mario and Mary, continue to participate.

Given there’s more or less a fortnight left let’s kick things off with an October 3k Virtual event – times to be submitted to Tony by midnight, Tuesday, November 3rd

Looking forward to hearing from you and keeping us in touch with one another.

Virtual League Racing Series – Race 27: still in the forefront

Thanks to everyone competing in the Virtual 2k Series for keeping the club in the forefront of those supporting this much needed venture. It looks certain that Helen and John will continue the Series through the autumn and winnter months. In this case I hope we can sustain our collective involvement.

More information to follow in the next few days but we are proposing that we continue also our own Club Virtual Series through the autumn and winter using a standard distance each month of 3 kilometres.

In addition look out for details of a series of Time Trials, which Trevor and Linda McDermot are organising at Kirkby Fleetham in the coming months – a great venue, see below the photo taken by Linda.

FRED PEARCE VIRTUAL 5K RELAY: NEVER FORGOTTEN

Firstly I must apologise for the belated appearance of these results. I’ve been knocked off my stride by serious family illness. This said these are difficult times for so many people.

Secondly I must thank everyone for joining in with this virtual collective exercise and in a muted way continuing to honour the remarkable contribution of the Pearce family to the history of our club.

Thirdly credit is due to Dave Evans for his creative team permutations. In real life what a finish it would have been!

Despite a green light the Sutton 10k cancelled, but let’s carry on our Virtual exploits!

How frustrating! Having been given the green light by the RWA to hold the Albert Rigby race we find that the Ex-Servicemen’s club at Sutton is no longer available on October 3rd. Covid -related changes to the interior layout of the club are being carried out over the said weekend. Roy Gunnett advised by our great friend, Glyn Jones had done a great job in ensuring our submission for permission met all the criteria – thanks also to Colin Vesty for his support. Certainly this preparatory work should hold us in good stead for future requests for permits, the next on the horizon being the AGM 5k in early November. Nothing about this process is straightfoward, particularly in terms of demands on the venue itself, in this case the village hall. We’ll keep you posted on developments.

In the meantime the virtual world beckons with two immediate deadlines.

  1. The Virtual 2k series organised by Helen Elleker and John Constandinou reaches its 26th Week and it would fitting to forward as many submissions from our members as possible. All the more so as we should be proud of our consistent high profile support to the venture – see the Week 25 results below.
  2. As far as our own Club Virtual Series goes this month sees us hosting the Virtual Fred Pearce Relay. The closing date for submitting times to Tony at tonymtaylor@gmail.com has been extended until midnight on Friday, October 2. Sorry to be a pain, even if you’ve already let me know, could you confirm your time. Meanwhile the fiendish and cunning Dave Evans is enjoying creating a cluster of competitive teams, Which trio will come out on top? It should be fun finding out.

Virtual League Racing Series – Week 24 with a milestone Week 26 in the offing

Significantly next week sees Week 26 of the Virtual Series, illustrating that the competition has been going for a full half year. Helen Elleker, who has contributed so much to keeping the show on the road is hoping for a big turnout to celebrate the milestone. Hence we are encouraging as many people as possible to submit a 2k time for this coming seven days. If you’ve not been involved before it’s no problem just send me your time and date of birth – tonymtaylor@gmail.com

I think we should be proud as a club for the way we have supported the Virtual Series during this surreal year.

10 KILOMETRES HANDICAP

The race within a race based on handicap allowances was a traditional feature of Race Walking events across the decades at a club level, but particularly within Open races. Entry forms would always ask for one’s latest performance to assist the handicapper decide on your allowance based on the fastest prospective competitor starting from scratch i.e. having no handicap allowance. The handicap race was seen as providing motivation for athletes throughout the field – from a younger walker breaking through to a seasoned veteran still striving to do do their best.

FRED PEARCE VIRTUAL 5K RELAY – THE SEPTEMBER CHALLENGE

We’ve decided to make your 5 kilometre clocking in September the basis for a Virtual Fred Pearce Relay. This race has always been a highlight of of our season, commemorating the immeasurable contributions to our club of both father and son. In recent years Dave Evans has mixed and matched competitors into teams of three with a view to orchestrating a close fought final leg. Exciting and good fun!

Joe Hardy hands over to Russell Jackson in the 2019 Fred Pearce Relay

Hence we are asking if you would indicate if you would like to be in Dave’s mix. He will use as a starter the 5k times from June with due cognisance of improvements since then over the longer distances. We very much hope our friends and guests from Scotia and beyond will participate. In addition we would welcome your involvement even if this is your first appearance in the Club Series.

Therefore it would be enormously helpful to Dave as the handicapper and creator of the teams if you could let us know if you are happy to be involved by September 21st. 5k times will be accepted up to midnight, October 1st.

James Pearce and Bronte were hoping for better weather this year. It will have to be a sunny 2021 then

Hoping very much you will be part of our effort to keep up our collective spirits and our commitment to remembering Fred Pearce Senior and Junior as they were affectionately known.
