That great annual event, the Trinity College track races, will take place on Thursday evening with the first race at 7pm. There will be three distance for all categories – 800 metres, one mile and 3,000 metres; men and women. Races will be held for ranges of standards so you will be running against people of roughly the same standard – people who have never won a race before will win races. You can run in one or all of the races for your category, all for the one entry fee. The weather forecast is good for Thursday evening so I would recommend it. It is a lovely event to participate in and you will enjoy racing at distances that are shorter than we normally run. You will even get tactical battles in the 3,000 metres where people jockey for position coming into the last lap or two. Great fun.
There are individual and team prizes with a very sophisticated scoring system based on your BHAA standard (every member has one) and your race time. It is very logical and every team is in with a chance – just make sure you have a team and see the proof on the night. Check out the "My downloads" section at the top of the home page for your grade.
Even if you are not going to run, it is great to watch – even the beer-drinking students outside the Pavilion bar enjoy the good sport in this great setting. So, make an effort to get there on Thursday.
