London/Manchester marathon postponed/ not sure what's happening with your summer Ironman........we can help

Virtual Running

You can still run outside, still keep fit, still work towards these goals. AND you can still get that shiny bling for all these runs.

Finarace.com are advertising Plan B allowing you to win some bling through covering distance between 25-200km or to get a new PB for a race distance between 5km to a marathon.

Runthrough are advertising virtual running where they will send you the t-shirt and bling if you email them a strava screenshot of successfully completing the distance. It doesn't need to be on the same day as the planned race.

How can we celebrate these runs and keep track of the Windrush club achievements?

Announcing the ViS Run World Series 

In order to keep training we have hatched another devilish plan to keep Windrushers active and still achieve your running goals for 2020.

The ViS Run World Series will compile a number of solo virtual achievements where you can train towards your goal and maintain your fitness for the events planned later in the year. You can win a 10km medal from Runthrough or plan-b then contribute towards winning the ViS Run World Series. Remember these runs can be anywhere, any runs count.

We just ask for each Windrusher to join the Windrush Triathlon club on strava and then sign up to the ViS Run World Series via a google sheet adding your updated times.

Where you signed up to the Manchester marathon this year? 

Those months of training can still be put to good use, why not use these extra strong calves to bag yourself an extra 50 points in the ViS challenge. Criteria to get win the extra 50 points is on the google sheet. Support crew details are also on the google sheet.
