The results so far for 2018 are now posted on the Website.
This year we have two competitions going on for the Grand Prix where we have the usual first past the post competition, i.e. the person with the most points wins. The second is a handicap competition, where a handicap factor has been applied based on previous times, this makes it a more level playing field and gives more people the chance to win.
And as usual, we have been running the Most Improved Runners League (MIRL). This is based on 5 timed runs in the first part of the year compared against 5 runs over the same courses ran in the second half of the year. From this we can see those who have improved most.

Hi Just to let you know. Training on Tuesday will be at Menstrie. Two sessions will be available. One of them is a steady Hill run – a nice circuit up to Jerrah, then back along a nice wee trail called the Postman’s Path. If you are doing this one it will take a bit longer, probably about 90 minutes.
The other one will be the usual hour.
The Schedule for May is now posted.
There are two GP Races this month.
The Dumyat Hill Race at Stirling University on 9th May. Race starts at 7:00pm but you need to get registered, get your number etc.. so it’s advisable to be there by around 6:15pm.

The other race is the Dunblane Road Race, which is on May 27th from Dunblane High street. It starts at 1:00pm but as usual you’ll need to be there earlier to get registered.

It is possible that the training sessions planned for this week may change due to the adverse weather. Please keep an eye out for any emails from the WCH Chairman notifying you if there are any or check posts on Facebook.
Saturday 10th February is the first race in the Club’s Most Improved Runners League series. This is a competition for everyone because basically your competing against yourself.
There will be a number of races/routes that you do twice and your time is recorded each time. So for example, this is the first Falkirk Parkrun in the series, we will do another one later in the season and your times will be measured for improvement. We will do the same thing with other runs held on training nights.
The two, girl and boy, with the highest percentage improvement will be crowned MIRL champions for 2018.
It is important therefore that if you do this parkrun, you do the corresponding one later in the year to get a score.
So it doesn’t matter how fast or how slow you are. It’s how much you improve. The idea is to give every single member a chance of winning.
