Just trying to drum up some support for this unique race series in the North West. I tried it out this year on a provisional basis and it does seem to have some promise (although it's a lot of extra work for me, especially early on in the series!).
Basically, you need to complete 8 out of 12 of the listed races to stand a chance of winning a prize (Sweatshop voucher). The series is free to take part in - you just need to complete the 8 races. Your score is based on the male or female winning time, unlike a positional basis, and therefore larger events don't put you at a disadvantage. If you complete more than 8 then your worst scores are discarded.
Full details and the provisional events list can now be found at the Challenge page
Give it a go!
