(30th June) 6 Days Training Mapped out as WOC2017 gets Under Way

Today was the opening race of the 2017 World Championships in Estonia. All 6 British runners qualified in the sprint-distance heats for Saturday's final. GBR have an exciting sprint squad so the sprint relay on Sunday could be very thrilling indeed.

If you'd like to follow WOC, the WOC2017 web site is excellent, with live updates as things happen, and free TV coverage from 1200 the day after each race. There is also pay-per-view TV for live coverage of every race - ideal for anyone laid up in bed!

As WOC gets under way, the pre-entries for the Scottish 6 Days are about to close - midnight on the 30th to be precise. We have 60 Moravians entered from just under 3,000 total entries, despite a couple of unfortunate withdrawals due to injury. This makes us one of the best-represented clubs in the event, although Forth Valley seem to have the prize for most runners among the Scottish clubs - exactly 100 with local club MAROC just 10 behind. As anticipation for this massive event builds, our secretary, Ali Wiseman, has set up two training sessions on the next 2 Wednesdays to help everyone get in shape, and we hear that there will be controls out in Culbin during the week leading up to the 6 Days, left out for us by the GB Talent Squad who will be around here doing some training. More details on that as soon as we know for sure.

 

Do come and take part - these sessions are being put on because of demand from members for more training and coaching. If they are well supported it will provide more incentive for others to put on more sessions. There is a sign-up link in the "event details" in our fixtures section for each session.
