The Sportlink Virtual Mile and evening knockout series returns for 2022; sponsored by Coolcamper Graphics and On.
This year the entries will be ranked by age grading, rather than time submitted - with the aim to create a level playing field for all. Athletes in the Under 13 category(year 6 & 7) upwards to seniors/masters can enter. There will be 4 categories; male runners, female runners, male wheelchair, female wheelchair.
The cost to enter is £9.95. This includes a medal for all entrants, and donations will be made to charities chosen by Athletics Norfolk, Sportlink and Coolcampers.
INSTRUCTIONS & RULES
You must run a circular mile route starting and finishing as close as possible to each other - ideally no more than 100m difference between the points - please use a GPS watch or download Strava on to your mobile to record your evidence. If you are unable to do either of these, please email firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss other options for submitting your route. Once you have entered you will see the instructions for uploading your evidence.
If you need to plan your route we advise using websites such as mapmyrun to create your route: https://www.mapmyrun.com/routes/create/
Your run must be completed within the period of 1st February and 14th March - entry and submission dates will be live during this time and close on midnight on 14th March.
Once entries have closed, the fastest 3 actual times for male and female runners, and male and female wheelchair athletes will receive a prize.
PROGRESSION TO TRACK FINALS
The top 64 male and female entrants, ranked by age grading will be invited to compete in the Smile track night series at Sportspark in Norwich.
A handicapping system will be applied that should in theory see all evening track races have a blanket finish. Wildcard races will also be include to invite those outside of the top 64.
Quarter Final - 1st April, top 64 males and females (age graded)
Semi-final - top 24 qualifying from QF
Final - top 9 from SF.
