Martin George leads Reward Running

Reward Running Scheme Image

There are only four days left until the runners with the most improved handicap scores are rewarded with an adidas mi-coach or Sennheiser headphones BUT you have to be in it to win it so sign up quickly! The scores could change as runners all over Great Britain line up for the many races that are taking place over the Easter Weekend.

Martin George has dropped his handicap by more than 9 points through 3 races this month. One of his best performances was a 84:03 half marathon at Llanelli, where he knocked more than 2 minutes off the time that he clocked there in 2012. Hot on his heels is John Hayes who is more than 7 points lower than he was on 1 March. John has been getting stuck into the parkruns and lowered his 5k time by more than 6 minutes from 25:08 to 18:52.

Both Martin and John are in category 3 for runners who have handicaps between 13 and 20. The most improved  runner in each category will be rewarded at the end of this month along with the top overall improvements (we have ten prizes in all). The categories are:

1: 5 or under
2: 6-12
3: 13-20
4: 21 or above

At the time of writing the following runners are leading their categories:

1. Ali Wilson (improved by 2.121)

2. Robert Mann (improved by 4.294)

3. Martin George (improved by 9.066)

4. James Connell (improved 6.514)

 If you haven't signed up for Reward Running make sure you do it this week so that you are in with a shout of being rewarded for your running before the end of March!
