Arenatopia series 2021 – Round 4 – 5km… a year on
The fourth round of this year’s Arenatopia series takes us down memory lane to the first lockdown days and a repeat of the distance that kicked off all this virtual malarkey… 5km. However, the twist with this round is that it rewards overall improvement rather than the specific effort on the day.
Basically, I will compare this round’s effort with your 5km effort from the first Arenatopia round in May last year. You will then be scored based on how the two compare.
For those that didn’t participate last year, I will base the comparison on your best time of your last 5 parkruns.
If you didn’t participate last year, and you’ve never done a parkrun… well, quite frankly I’m not too sure what I’ll do as there is only so much online scouring I’m prepared to do!
The round shall commence from Monday 28th June and finish on (and therefore entries submitted by) 23.59 Sunday 11th July.
Hope that all makes sense. Here’s a little summary of the details/ rules:
Monday 28th June – Sunday 11th July
Times will be compared to the first arenatopia round last year
Positions based on greatest improvement when compared
Age gradings based on greatest improvement when compared
If you didn’t run it last year, I will use your best time of your last 5 parkruns
If you’ve never done a parkrun, I will just have to figure something out
Make sure you submit it on time to be counted, all the usual details can be found here: https://arena80.co.uk/2021-arenatopia/
After this round, there will be a little hiatus over the summer, returning in September for the final four rounds.
