Spring Series Virtual Racing The HHH Spring Race Series will take you on a 29 mile Sussex odyssey over hill and down dale. It’s a feat of daring do and it needs YOU!

We are really pleased to present the HHH SPRING RACE SERIES to you Beetroots. As always, we would like every single one of you to take part and feel a little bit clubby again. Have a read and let us know by 17 February 2021 if you want to be involved!

Welcome to #SSVR

Over three races, across the three months of Spring, you will be challenged to the core of your very soul. You will face your demons and you will triumph over all adversities. 

In a nutshell: 

In very competitively matched teams, brought together by the HHH Team Algorithmer, you will battle in three challenges and the Winning Team will take the prizes! 

Dates for your Virtual Race Diaries:

Race 1: THE DOUBLE BACK - Road 10k - Feb 18 to Feb 21 2021

Race 2: THE TROUBLESOME TEN - 10 Miles - Mar 25 to Mar 28

Race 3: THE HARRIERS SPRING HALF - 13.1 Miles - Apr 22 to Apr 25

In addition to the Team Challenge, Individual Performance Prizes will be made for each race, and all race results will of course be Age-Graded. Spot prizes for random achievements will also be awarded!! 

Head Coach Martin will be supporting the Series with a training approach to ensure we all feel good enough to have a crack at our best effort.

Race One - 10k 'The Double Back'

Courses:

THE DOUBLE BACK Strava Segment is at :  https://www.strava.com/segments/27237969?filter=overall and detailed course instructions are included below

The VR Team have provided a central HH course on a Strava segment for the first race. We want you to run this course, as always with social distancing firmly at the forefront of your minds. However, given the current government advice to exercise locally, we will also accept a 10k Strava activity from those who are not near enough to Haywards Heath to call it local. We will of course assess elevation with a beady eye. 

Please take a look at the main VR Races page on the web site for guidance on what you need to do as far as the tech bit goes, and also what you should do at a minimum as far as Health and Safety requirements are concerned, and of course you will need to take social distancing measures into account also. 

More will follow on the detail as we create the teams and hurtle toward the first race window.

Next steps

Courses for THE TROUBLESOME TEN and THE HARRIERS SPRING HALF will be provided by the VR team also, but we will wait until nearer the race window to assess the social distancing measures likely to shape the course.

What Next:

To take part, just drop Ian D or Mark S a line on the club Whatsapp, or e-mail and we will include you in the Team Draft Pick (which frankly should be televised). 

Our first race window opens VERY SOON so get your place locked down (sorry) asap and certainly by the close of play on the 17th Feb. 😃
