FYBs Are Back: Virtually for Starters
UPDATE Mar 31, 2022:
Series is now complete. Makes it number 33. Thanks to the club executive for organizing it and to all participants..
The results of FYB#3 2022 and of #1 and #2 are available from the Race Results dropdown menu.
The club executive are happy to announce a Freeze Your Buns Series 1K/5K for 2022. They had hoped to have a traditional in-person three (3) race series. However the Covid situation is currently such that this is not possible
This is certainly true for the January event which is scheduled to be virtual. However, there are hopes that by the time the late Febuary edition is due, the Covid situation will have improved to the point that an in-person race, likely modified, will be possible.
So, In view of current Covid-19 restrictions, the series will not be run as normal but in a VIRTUAL mode. This means runners can choose their own 1K or 5K course, run it over the dates outlined, and submit their times via email to email@example.com using the honour system.
So for 2022, the series schedule is currently as follows, all races (for now)in a Virtual mode:
- FYB #1 is open any time Jan. 29 through Jan. 30
- FYB#2 is open any time Feb. 26 through Feb. 27
- FYB#3 is open any time Mar. 26 through Mar. 27
For the three (3) U13 1K race series: Races: Free Shirt: $15
For the three (3) 5K race series: U13 $15 Members $30 Non-members $40
The individual races (without shirt) are: U13 Free Members $10 Non-members $15.
[Membership: If you signed up for a membership in 2020 or 2021, you are considered a member for 2022. Should in-person racing be eventually resumed, membership for 2022 specifically will then be reinstated. The fees will be prorated accordingly.]
