Monster Mondays: new series of 5k races launches for a summer challenge28 May 2019
A different type of racing is taking to the motocross track at Pleinmont during the summer months. Bedell Cristin has teamed up with Distance.gg, to stage a series of four 5k running races over the taxing track at La Trigale.
Aptly titled ‘Monster Mondays’ the series will challenge the competitive grit of up to 50 corporate teams who will complete six laps of the track between them. “Monster Mondays will be an exciting challenge for runners,” said Distance.gg’s Michael Quittenden. “We planned these races to be a celebration of team work while also encouraging a competitive spirit to win the title of the fastest firm in Guernsey.”
Kate Ovenden, managing partner of sponsor Bedell Cristin, said: “The undulating course, with its many twists and turns, will be testing for the competitors. "We hope that this series of races will encourage firms to get out in the summer evenings and enjoy the Guernsey coastline."
Participants can sign up via Eventbrite with an entry fee of £50 for each team of three. There are male, female and mixed categories.
The Monster Mondays series will take place on 10 June, 8 July, 12 August and 16 September at 6.30 pm. A prize-giving presentation will be held at the final event in September at the Imperial Hotel.
