Could do! Anyone else up for it? Chas? ;-)

Anyone?

Chas:
on my bike?

Scrappy Doo:
Might be, although I'll be very slow and trying to run fast might break me at the moment!!
Apr 29, 2020 11:32 AM # 
marten:
Might be. My goal is a sub 25.

philm64:
oh come on Martin! you were at 4:00 pace whilst orienteering the other week! :-)

Paul - please don't injure yourself!

Chas - on your bike sure, for comparison!!!! Get Louise & Janet to do it. Mikey could probably do 18mins on sheer talent.....

Note: Only elapsed times of zero allowed - no "Ross Barkley 5km" please! ;-) (google or twitter it if you want to know what it is ....)

I've found a very flat fast piece of road......

I'm in. Will the "race" take place? Should we start at the same time? Like a real virtual race? Or just on the same day?
May 1, 2020 3:50 PM # 
philm64:
Same day I'd say, any time really?

Any rules? eg not all downhill (!), or one way with wind behind all the way? (v windy here today). Mine is likely to be a loop, or at worst, similar to what i ran last tuesday.

No stopping. No "Ross Barkley" tactics! ;-) The final record is 10:37 for 5.04 km, downhill reps on grass, took him 90 minutes - ridiculous! ;-) https://twitter.com/KendalDotKOM/status/1255937128...

I'm in. But I plan to cheat.

23:35 https://www.strava.com/activities/3384488806

I'm in second place!

philm64:
Yay! Who else? Simon, Marten.

Chas is doing it at his own pace, Ross Barkley stylee? If he does it on his bike, I propose he does it uphill on the way up towards Holme moss. otherwise it's SIMPLY NOT FAIR.
May 2, 2020 11:52 AM # 
philm64:
Was it downhill much, Neil....? ;-)
May 2, 2020 12:24 PM # 
Frostbite:
Not all of it. There's a little climb in the 4th kilometre.
May 2, 2020 12:33 PM # 
philm64:
You're right. I detect a 9m climb. OK, you're off the hook.
May 2, 2020 12:34 PM # 
philm64:
3rd place now sadly as Simon has posted 18:45. Wow! Marten next?
May 2, 2020 1:00 PM # 
marten:
Done!
May 2, 2020 1:13 PM # 
Chas:
Here's my submission:
https://www.strava.com/activities/3384645842/segme...

5km uphill (500ft) and into the wind today just so it's fair ;-)

Tidy effort Chas as that is a long drag out to the M62.
Next weekend we should do a virtual O race instead of the Northern Champs.

Charlie wins with 16:13. Fair's fair. The segment record, I see, is 10:36.Coincidentally, that's the Ross Barkley record for 5km running as well .... (yes really).

Gold: Chas 16:13
Silver: Simon 18:45
Bronze: Phil 19:14
4th Marten 19:45
5th: Neil 23.35

Last place: everyone & anyone who failed to take part! :-)

Simon proposes a 10km in 2 weeks. Food 4 thought...... I may accept (another beasting). Chas to do no wheels, thanks!
May 2, 2020 6:20 PM # 
philm64:
Chas: 170m climb so valid, IMO.
May 2, 2020 8:21 PM # 
Scrappy Doo:
I'll take Neil's last place.... thanks

Chas:
Very generous Phil. I think I need to find a steeper hill for comparability.
Obviously running I'd be nearer Neil's time.
May 3, 2020 10:29 AM # 
philm64:
Chas: I'll do ANYTHING to not be second! ;-)
I've got about 20 silvers & 3 golds & 2 bronzes from the last 10 years O
I treasure the bronzes more than the silvers :-)

Gold: Chas 16:13
Silver: Simon 18:45
Bronze: Phil 19:14
4th Marten 19:45
5th: Neil 23.35
6th: Paul 26:31

10km in 2 weeks? (gulp)

Frostbite:
I might be struggling to find a downhill 10k

Damn, coming in too late with my 8.49 (https://www.attackpoint.org/sessiondata.jsp?sessio...)

Can't count the 8.30, I suspect I stopped at at least one set of lights, massive tail wind.
