Guildford's largest 10km running event will take place on 13 October. Starting from Guildford High Street, participants will race along closed roads towards Clandon and back.
We are very excited to partner up with racecheck to transform race participation into a more social experience. Together, we aim to give all runners the opportunity to meet a new running friend from the moment they enter the Guildford 10k on 13 October. Not everyone has a running buddy (yet), but by offering runners the chance to join a team community, everyone has the opportunity to meet new (and probably local!) people.
If you're already one of the hundreds of runners who have already signed up for this exciting new road run, you will have already chosen your "racecheck team". So what does this mean?
All Guildford 10k participants will receive a complimentary headwrap (buff) which reflects a racecheck team colour. During online registration, runners are invited to join either #TeamPink, #TeamOrange or #TeamTurquoise. Invite your friends to join the same team as you, or challenge your colleagues to race against you in a different team - you decide what you want to get out of being a racecheck team member!
If you follow @racecheck and @aatevents on social media*, you can "e-meet" other Guildford 10k participants who will be representing their teams using their team hashtags: #TeamPink, #TeamOrange or #TeamTurquoise. Motivate each other, encourage others to join your team and share your training stories. We recommend that you download the racecheck IOS app to receive racecheck team updates.
On race day, the colour-coded buffs will help you to easily identify other people in the pack who are running in your team- so in the spirit of encouraging others, why not make the effort to give them an extra cheer if you see them in the pack?
Those who thrive on the competitive aspect of running as part of a team will enjoy the racecheck team results table. Who will be the winning team- #TeamPink, #TeamOrange or #TeamTurquoise?
