Tipperary.....Inter-firm Road League - Wed 31st March 2010

Just a quick reminder that the Inter-Firm road league is on this evening in Clonmel, Co.Tipp.

Details below.....

This League will commence on Wednesday 31st March and will continue on Wednesday 7th and 14th of April. On the 21st April we will have the handicap race. This year all athletes must predict their finishing time for each race when entering. Then everyone must run the course without a watch. Their finishing times will be recorded at the finish. An athlete will score points for his team by the number of seconds he/she is closest to his/her time. This year it will be the cumulative combined time for the best three athletes on each team closest to their predicted time. So if one athletes predicts 30 mins and runs 29 mins 30 secs, its -10 secs another athlete on the team runs 29 mins and predicts 29 mins 10 secs, that plus 10 seconds while the 3rd athlete to count on the team runs 29 mins 5 secs while predicting 29 mins, that plus 5 seconds, so their combined score is 5 seconds. The team with the lowest number of points wins. The best three athletes, who finish closest to their time, not where they finished in the race, will count for their team. So you, the athlete, can set your own time each night and go for it.
So now is the time to be organising your teams and remember teams can be mixed and members can come from different places of employment. Teams can consist of five athletes with three to count each night. The entry fee is €12 and it covers all four races. For further enquiries please contact Niall O Sullivan at 086 1660888
