For Junior and Seniors, a challenge for charity with medals for the runners who clock up the most Ks and other fun events.
There will be an entrance donation to charity and whatever the runners raise, HAC will match it. The charity we have chosen is The Trussell Trust, the foodbank for Thetford.
All we ask is for a donation to the local foodbank, no matter how big or small. Whatever you manage to raise, HAC will double the amount.
Here's the link to log your runs and where you'll find all the info for making your foodbank donations: HAC ADVENT CHALLENGE
From 1st December to 24th December we want you to run as many kilometres as you can – you choose the distance and the routes.
All entries will receive a medal and we also have some extra prizes to win along the way.
Prize 1 – Best Christmas Fancy Dress
Prize 2 – Most kilometres run Senior
Prize 3 – Most kilometres run Junior (must run with an adult so get your parents involved!)
Prize 4 – Best Christmas Strava Art – create your own Christmas picture with your route.
You then send evidence of your runs and your artwork into us and we will total up your kilometres and we’ll also share your amazing artwork on our website and FB pages. We would also love to see photos of you on your run, the route, your Christmas outfits etc which you can post on the Harling Athletics FB pages.
So, come on Harling Athletics Club members. Let’s finish 2020 on a fantastic high. Let’s get out those Christmas jumpers and leggings, socks and hats and get running – the challenge is on!!!
HAC Coaches and Committee
It is fantastic to see so many juniors back at athletics on Saturday mornings and Monday evenings. You all look in great form! Everyone is paying attention to their spatial awareness and using dollops of antibac hand lotion!
The only downside is on Monday evenings - the floodlights aren't working, so therefore having to use small portable ones, until they are fixed. If parents could park facing the rec with their lights on that would be a big help! Even better though would be someone to come forward and donate an amount of money to pay for the 30 year lights to be replaced or repaired!
It is also good to see a large amount of adults running on both days too. On Mondays the adults have opted not to use the rec and can be seen running through Harling with high viz and head torches on.
If you are interested in joining us, we'd loved to see you.
