Urban Assault Saturday 30 January 2010

The aim of the event is to have a fun time together and to get to know the other people in the gym and a new and different way to train and get fit.

This is a 12hour event and is happening on Saturday 30 January 2010. Start time will be at 10am-gives everyone enough time to get out of bed. Prize giving will be at 22:00.

This is a team event with the emphasis on T E A M. You have to be 2, 3 or 4 members in a team of which 1 member must be a walker/runner. This event is not only for cyclists. If you can’t find a walker/runner then one of the cyclists will have to sit out a cycling round and walk/run the lap. It will be a lap of about 4km, so before you are really tired it will be your teammate’s turn. So the distance will be well within the means of everybody.

Beginners this is for you! Of course you don’t have to be here all the time, you could arrange with your team for you to sit out a few rounds if you have to attend to work/family/shopping and then fall back in and complete another few laps. So get your teams together, dress up in team colours, decide on strategy and tactics, and have fun.

If you don’t want to run/walk/cycle but would like to be part of the event, please speak to me. I need a hand with lap timing etc.
