Virtual National Road Relays

Virtual National Road Relay 5k:

Last weekend saw many of the club’s endurance runners take the opportunity of national level competition by posting a solo recorded 5k Strava/Garmin run on a course of their choice at any time during the day. Younger athletes were overseen by householders, whilst many others chose a route within exercising distance of their homes.

As well as replacing the cancelled National Road Relays normally held in early April the event also raised funds for the UK organiser’s designated NHS Charity Guernsey competitors are encouraged to donate to either this or a local equivalent.
