This month’s Tortoise & Hare race is at Warren Park in Fort Collins this Sunday (November 6th). It is 5 kilometers, or 3.1 miles. The first runners will start at 8:00 A.M., so we suggest getting to the race at 7:45 A.M.
A couple important things:
- Daylight savings time kicks in this weekend. Please do not forget to set your clock back on Saturday night! (E.g., 2:00 A.M. becomes 1:00 A.M.)
- If this will be your first ever Tortoise & Hare race, you will need to predict a finishing time for yourself. For example, “36 minutes, 30 seconds for the 5k.” Alternatively, you may predict an average pace—e.g., “8:40/mile”.
Ideally, at least one day before the race, please e-mail race director Nick Clark with your predicted time or pace at firstname.lastname@example.org. Failing that, please arrive at least 15 minutes early (e.g., 7:45 A.M.) at the start of the race to sign in and tell Nick your predicted time.
