New Speed Series – pilot races

The MRC has been working with the SRC to pilot a new series of local “Speed Series” races. The aim of these races is to create a local and regional sprint and short-course marathon competition similar to the Hasler series, and with a focus on learning and fun.

Norwich CC trialled an event among club members on 25th April, which included 200m knock-out sprints, a relay event and a 3.6k tactical race with portages.

Details of the trial can be found here, with a summary of feedback received here.

The MRC and SRC are now in discussion with a couple of clubs to reopeat this trial during 2021, with a view to launching a series of races in 2022.

Please contact Dyson Pendle if your club is interested in running a trial event
