Collection of Friday 5 medals and trophies

Congratulations to all runners who won prizes and those who completed 4 or more races to receive a series medal. We hope that you enjoyed the events that you took part in.

A list of all prize winners will be published on the website once the results are finalised on Weds 11th July. Trophies and medals will be available for collection from the Framlingham Flyers gazebo at the Ekiden Relay being held this Sunday (15th July) at Woodbridge School.

If you belong to a club that is competing in the relays, your trophy/medal will be handed direct to your club for them to distribute.

If you didn’t run for a club or your club isn’t taking part on Sunday, please see Ricky Peacher at the Framlingham Flyers gazebo.

If neither of the above are suitable options please get in touch and we can try to work out the best way to get them to you.

We’re very pleased to announce the introduction of a junior race series supported by East of England Co-op. The races will be the existing junior races that take place before the Friday 5 races, but this year we will allocate scores based on the finish position in each age category. At the end of the series we will award trophies to the top 3 boys and top 3 girls in each age category (U9, U11, U13 and U15). Please help spread the word.

Dear Friday 5 competitor

Thank you for taking part in this year’s Friday 5 Series, we really hope you enjoyed it. The organising committee have already met to start preparations for next year’s series, and we’d like to hear any suggestions you may have.

Following feedback received over the course of this year’s events we’ve already agreed the following changes:

  • The Senior category will be replaced with an Open category. All runners will accrue points based on where they finish in the Open category, resulting in an overall 1st, 2nd and 3rd male/female for the whole series. All other age categories will remain the same. This brings the age categories for the series into alignment with those used in the individual races.
  • Trophies will be presented to the first three placed runners in each category.
  • Runners who are eligible for awards in the Open category and an age category will receive both awards.
  • Although everyone liked the idea of having a T-Shirt as the series memento, the logistics of organising T-Shirts in all the right sizes has proved impractical, so this will revert to being a medal in 2018.
  • The 2018 series will consist of 6 races. The final score will be based on the best 4 out of 6 races, giving runners the option of skipping 2 races if they don’t want to do too many races in such a short time period.
  • Runners will need to complete 4 races (not just enter 4 races) in order to receive the series medal.

If you have any other suggestions for how the series could be improved please use the following link to let us know.

We look forward to seeing you in 2018.

Kind Regards
Trevor Bunch
(on behalf of the Friday 5 Series organising committee)

IMPORTANT NOTICE FROM IPSWICH JAFFA RUNNING CLUB – Wednesday 10 May 2017

It is with regret that we must announce the cancellation of our Friday 5 fixture scheduled to take place on Friday 26th May 2017. We have not been able to satisfactorily meet the health and safety requirements to stage the event on the planned date. We have not taken this decision lightly but the safety of those participating is our primary concern. Full refunds will be provided to those who have entered.

The series rules will now revert to those applied in previous years in that you will need to complete 4 of the 5 events to qualify for the series memento.
Please accept our sincere apologies.
