One of our most popular club events is the monthly 10k staggered jog event. We meet on the last Sunday of each month, unless there is a reason for it to be moved to the week earlier, at the Golf Club at 9.30.
It’s a 10k route on open roads through Burnham Beeches with each runner setting off at a slightly different time. The slower runners start first, the faster runners later. The idea is that everyone finishes at about the same time to make for an exciting finish.
Start times and results are based on your fastest staggered jog time in the previous 12 months.
The winner is the person whose time beats their year personal best by the biggest percentage. The results are announced a few days after the race once the calculations have been done.
It’s a great personal challenge to push for your best time. Whether you’re a fast runner or a slower runner you have the same chance of winning.
The first time you run one of the events you will be setting a time for your subsequent races. To be fair to all runners we ask that new starters give of their best on their first run.
The winner receives a cherished trophy known as ‘candlesticks’ to keep for the month – and new for 2017 they also receive a chunky staggered jog medal depicting part of the course and the candlesticks.
The route is unmarked and there are no marshals. So please take care on the course, running on the right side of the road except where turning a blind corner.
You will need to remember the route, we suggest the first time you run it you run with someone that knows the route or take a print of it with you. Much of the time you are likely the see someone ahead of you running the route. To help identify members we ask that you wear your club top.
We are lucky to have a dedicated team of volunteers without whom it wouldn’t be possible to run the staggered jog. Members are asked to volunteer to help with the start and recording finishing times once in a while.
The race is a members only event for the competition but non members and friends of members are welcome to join us.
