VIRTUAL RACE SERIES

After the Corvid – 19 virus hit the world in 2020, it had an enormous impact on the daily lives of everyone. Outdoor space, travelling, holidays and the working lives of the ordinary person all became effected. Over night, all of our trail running races and outdoor events got postponed and that gave birth to this – Dave Talbot Adventure Events – Virtual Race Series.

Our first race was a virtual version of the Malvern Hills Trail Half Marathon and now it’s evolved into the Twister Virtual Race Series. Join us.

These events are free to join. If you want a medal, there’s an option to buy one on the registration form – we’ll get that posted out to you around race day.

Twist-Mas Special Half Marathon

WE’RE BACK – LET’S TWIST AGAIN

The nights are getting longer and the days are getting shorter. The weather is getting cooler and therefore it seems that we might need some autumn / winter motivation. Some much needed camaraderie, some good olde fashioned fitness, maintain the body, maintain the mind. 

Twist-Mas Special Half Marathon
Virtual Race Series – Round 3 – Who will win the race? The fast / flat times or do you take to the hills??
 

Virtual Race Series 3 – Twist-Mas Special Half Marathon – 12th December – feel free to start when you like on this day.  You must run a half marathon and record it using Strava or similar App, whilst keeping to Government guidelines on Covid – 19. It’s free to enter this race.

 

RULES:

 
* You must run by yourself or in a small group
* You must stay at least 2 meters away from people you meet
* You must record your run and enter your results using the form that will be sent to you
* Twister Rules – for every 25 metre of height gained on your route, you will have one minute knocked off your finishing time. This will even out the playing field for those running a flat / fast route to those running a hilly route……but which one will win??
*If two times are the same, it will be the person with the most height gain that will win.

TWIST-MAS SPECIAL RULES:

1. Wearing a Santa hat = minus 2 minutes off of your time
2. Eat a mince pie on your run = minus 2 minutes off of your time
3. Drink some sherry or mulled drink = minus 2 minutes off of your time
4. If your route is mainly off road (more than 60%) = minus 6 minutes off your time.
