ELVIS is back!
Looking forward to resuming friendly competition with local sister clubs. The ethos of ELVIS is that the events should be accessible to a wide spectrum of runners, reasonably priced and enjoyable. The more H90Joggers who enter improves the chances of our club doing well . Go to https://elvisraces.club where details of the inter-club competition can be found.
Once again there will be a H90J ELVIS Challenge. The Challenge is focused on identifying those members that show the most and consistent improvement over the series of races as well as the outright best performers. Therefore any member of any standard or age is in with a chance of gaining recognition – beginners are particularly encouraged to participate. Entry to the Challenge is automatic on completion of your first race and a minimum of 5 races have to be finished to qualify (possibly 4 subject to review).
A couple of races have already been opened to entries – Dag 88 filled very quickly and is now full (with 30 H90J entrants) and its best to enter the Newman Hilly (also GP #1) as soon as possible. Covid may still affect things so keep an eye out for updates on event details and entry opening: also check https://elvisraces.club See below for the full list of the planned events.
