Summer Time Trials

These are a series of 2 mile time trial runs held regularly over the summer over the same course. They are open to all VHR members and are a great way to help improve speed over a relatively short distance and to monitor progress over the course of the summer.

  • Meet at Wheata Wood car park on Woodhead Road (Grenoside) for 6.30pm for a warm up jog out to the start then the Time Trial is over a 1 mile out & 1 mile back on the TPT bridleway.
  • Please wear a watch to record your time!!!
  • Suitable for trail or road shoes- but if it's wet it can be a bit muddy! 
  • Steady jog back to car park after, total distance on the night is around 5 miles.

For the final time trial of the summer, everyone is given a handicap based on their two fastest times, with the quickest runners having to play catch up on the not so quickest. This should result in everyone crossing the finishing line more or less together, so everyone in the final has an equal chance of winning.

Thanks to Richard and Steph for organising!
