Paddy’s patter

It has been absolutely brilliant to see you representing the Green and Gold with some phenomenal times in the our first Virtual Gordon Smith Relays!
We’ve helped raise over Β£1100 for the folk over at St Oswalds, you should be tremendously proud of yourselves.
It’s a busy and important week for the club, MNF is back to its usual evening slot and we have our Virtual AGM on Wednesday with some important decisions to be made on the future of your club.
Check your emails on how to join and I’ll see you there. πŸ’šπŸ’›

Here’s the science bit, all times below based on running at 8 mins per mile for a 10k. You may need to adjust the timings for your own individual pace.

Following feedback we’ve created a pace calculator to allow you to work out your target paces easily, just enter your target 10k time in the h:mm:ss format and let it do the hard work for you.
For example 45 minutes would be 0:45:00, 65 minutes would be 1:05:00
