Derek Smith 3000m

Date: Sat 8 May 2021
Time: 09:00

Your event day instructions are HERE! Please read everything below carefully, and pay close to attention to your Heat and Start times. 

Event Day

We want everyone to have 360 degrees of support as they complete their race, so if at all possible please come in time for the first event and stay to support others when your race has finished.

Social-Distancing

We have an incredible 65 Chasers registered to run (plus one registered pacer), so we do need to take social-distancing seriously.

  • You must not attend the event if you have been asked to self-isolate or have any coronavirus symptoms.
  • Bring your own water, safety-pins and a face-mask.
  • You must visit registration on arrival. You will be asked to confirm that you have no coronavirus symptoms and will be reminded of the social-distancing measures we have in place.
  • Please follow all instructions from our race-day marshals. They will be wearing high-vis vests.
  • There are a number of cheering zones marked out with cones. Please stand in these areas to cheer on the runners in groups of at most 6. This will mean we achieve both 360 degrees of support and social-distancing. There will be hand sanitiser provided in each cheering zone.
  • Avoid the finish area. Please don't distract our officials by gathering round the finish area. If you have questions on the day, check out this web page or speak to one of the marshals in high-vis.
  • There our toilets available on the Heath and at the track, but you must wear a face mask.
  • You can read our full risk-assessment here.

Race Instructions

  • The races and start times are listed below. We suggest arriving to the track and registering at least 20 minutes before your start time
  • Each race starts at the opposite corner of the track to the finish and the race is 7.5 laps of the track.
  • You must wear a race number both on your front and on your back. Numbers and pins will be handed out at registration.
  • You must arrive at the start area 5 minutes before your race is due to start.
  • You may do your warm-up drills along the back straight (opposite the finish area), but please do your warm-up jog on the path outside the facility. It is a good idea to do a very thorough warm up for a short race such as 3000m. For example 1 mile jog, 1 mile at threshold (comfortably fast that you could sustain for 1hr), 1 mile jog then drills and strides.
  • When you have completed your race, please leave the finish area in good time to leave space for the runners in the next race.
  • Your results will be available here and will be entered as soon as we can on race day.

Track Thursday - opens for signups on Wednesday

Date: Thu 22 April 2021
Time: 19:00

Track on Thursday is as follows:

A pyramid session

200m [60s], 400m [60s], 600m [60s], 800m [60-90s], 1000m [60-90s], 800 [60-90s], 600 [60s], 400 [60s], 200m [60s between each] (3-5k pace) Total: 5000m

There are two time slots, 19:00 and 19:20. You must book a slot before attending. You will be able to book slots from 9am (approximately) on Wednesday. 

We are opening bookings later as last week we found many people booked and then cancelled. This made it frustrating for those who had to keep checking if anyone had dropped out. In fact last week nobody who wanted to run missed out, so the number of places is about right so long as nobody books a place they don't use.

Track Rules During Coronavirus

  • You must follow all the coaches' instructions on social distancing.
  • If you are showing coronavirus symptoms you must not attend track. You must follow government guidance and self-isolate. You should obtain a coronavirus test and inform welfare@chaser.me.uk if you have a positive test.
  • Please bring your own water as there is none available at the track.
  • You can find a full risk assessment here.
  • Track sessions are free to club members. You can obtain a £5 temporary membership if you wish to try the club out.

General Track Etiquette

  • Run anticlockwise in lane 1. 
  • Overtake on the outside. Stay in lane 1 if someone is overtaking.
  • Do not cross the throws area.
  • No headphones.
  • Do not run two abreast.
