RACES

IF YOU KNOW YOUR HISTORY 5K / EVENT DATE

 

The date of the original If You Know Your History 5K event was to have been Sunday 2nd August.

However, as the event is now being hosted as part of the BTR virtual series the date for entries has been extended to 31st August in line with all other virtual runs.

Most people are choosing to run on the original date of the event

(2nd August) but you can take part when it suits you.

You can enter and run in any of the virtual runs at a time and location of your choosing up to and including 31st August.

BTR HOYLAKE OFFICE CLOSED WITH IMMEDIATE EFFECT

From Friday 17th July 2020 the BTR office in Hoylake will close permanently. This is due to the cancellation of all BTR race events since the half marathon in March and the consequent reduction in revenue.

Like many businesses across the country it is not possible for BTR to continue to cover monthly ongoing overheads so work on events will continue remotely until there is clarity on just how and when events can once again be delivered.

This is a massive disappointment as myself, Yvonne and Thomas have enjoyed the personal contact with many of you over the years, however at this time we are left with no option.

If anyone would like specific information about a BTR event then please email alan@btrliverpool.com at any time.

There is a new contact phone number which is 07561 208 923 which will be active between 9.00am and 5.00pm Monday - Friday.

LIVERPOOL SANTA DASH

At this time it is not clear whether the Santa Dash will be allowed to go ahead but work is going on behind the scenes to ensure that we have the best possible chance of the event going ahead on Sunday 6th December.

Plans are underway to ensure a covid safe environment is provided if necessary at the time.

Updates on the Santa Dash will be announced as and when relevant information becomes available.

Thank you for your continued support.

If You Know Your History NAMED NUMBERS

 

Entries taken after midday on Monday 13th July will NOT display the participants name.

The entry file will be sent for number production at this time and consequently entries taken after midday on 13th July will only show the participant number.

Congratulations to everyone who has taken part in the BTR Virtual race Series so far. So the first month has been completed and we have our early leaders.

The virtual series will continue the 31st August and at the end of the three months the winners in each race will receive a winners trophy - so can you improve on the June times and get yourself at the top of the leader board?

If you're not aiming for the top spot then you can use any of the distances as great motivation to get you through this period of lock down - and you will also be helping support a local business during very difficult times.

The virtual BTR races series offers a range of distances including 1 mile, 5K, 10K, 8 miles, 10 miles and 13.1 miles and will be open for you to take up the challenge during June, July and August.
