OK NH!! Results link to report your performances for the Sprint-Distance Festival is posted below! This is the first installment for NH as we participate in the LET’S GO Virtual Racing Series with Massachusetts and Rhode Island! We would like to thank them for inviting the Granite State. Last week they had 442 high schoolers share their isolated performances in designated events which took place on open tracks, stretches of flat road, trail or fields. As a reminder, we have posted the rules as well.
The events to be featured are the 400m, 800m, Mile, and the 5K. These events must be contested between Thursday, April 23rd and Sunday, April 26th at 6pm. This is a 2 step process. Register first and after your performance, report the results via the link below.
Depending on the event, each runner is to run an accurately measured distance of the event, which should be measured by a Garmin watch or any other GPS software. The specific event or events should be conducted on a flat surface that is legal and safe. No downhills, please! A few suggestions for your measured race or races are open parks, secluded neighborhoods or on a treadmill. If a track is open to the public, then yes use a track.
BUT, we can’t stress this enough, please do not run in groups! Practicing social distancing is of the utmost importance. The primary reason for these meets are to create something fun during these difficult times and also get those competitive juices flowing. We know you’re eager to compete and this is our way to make that happen. But please stay safe!
Have fun, stay safe and good luck NH!
