With everyone complying with the Government’s social distancing policies it has been difficult ensuring we are still able to add a competitive edge to peoples attempts to keep fit/race fit. In order to ensure that Army Athletics is able to provide some level of competition, we have embraced the Virtual running world. The attached admin order details what is required and how to enter including the link to the Open Track website.

Results can be included Q3 of the Army Sports Trophy Competition.

More details can be found on the on the Army Athletics Defence Connect page and social media.

Please ensure those who are entering the Inter Unit Virtual 1 Mile road race, when registering you register as part of your Unit and not as part of your Corps as this is an Inter Unit Race and your time will count towards any unit. If your unit is not shown contact the Army Athletics Secretary.

Some athletes sent in photographs of them completing the challenge whilst adhering to the social distancing guidelines.
