Each year 20 races are chosen to go into the NSRRA programme and the best 12 performances in these races count towards the league competition. In each of the events the 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th etc in each group receives 50, 49, 48, 47 etc points.

St. Thomas Virtual 10k
Our first virtual event the St Thomas 10k was a resounding success with 182 taking part. It seems everyone had a great time getting their competitive spirit back. Event winners were Ross Connor from City Of Stoke and Kelly Butler from Birchfield Harriers. Ross and Kelly were also first home for NSRRA.
Cheadle Virtual 4
The rules for the Cheadle 4 for are as follows:
The race can take place over the weekend of 11th and 12th July 2020.
The Cheadle 4 can be run anywhere but with the normal social distancing. You have two options:
Option 1 – One Run: Complete the run in one attempt with a minimum of 300ft elevation. Use this option for NSRRA.
Option 2 – Community: Do the 4 miles over numerous run/walks, no elevation requirements.
The 2020 event is dedicated to Oakley, the son of Jenny Dalkins who runs for Cheadle RC.
Oakley sadly passed away very recently aged just 15 from a brain tumour.
The event is looking to raise money for the fundraising in Oakley’s name and in support of the paediatric neurology department at Alder Hey hospital.
Once completed, submit your evidence to firstname.lastname@example.org and a normal set of results will be published. A bespoke race memento will be sent to you.
The virtual race is open to all, but If you are a member of NSRRA you will then be allocated your normal points (Option 1).
Send a finish line selfie to Bryan Dale – email@example.com.
Please do not travel to the race route and please observe the social distancing rules wherever you run.
Fees: £10.00 (+£1.50 Admin Charge)
