5k Virtual Series

We can't believe it; we are gearing up for the 3rd Team Zoot UK / Europe winter virtual 5k series.

For everyone new to the series, the rules are simple; on the last Saturday or Sunday of the month, you have to run a 5k time trail and record it on Garmin or Strava. As it's a virtual series, you can run with friends and teammates, but we can't run in an organized event, Park run, or a track.

You can run a circuit, out and back, your choice, but you can't record more than a 10meter difference between the start and finish point. Last point, no stopping and starting the watch for a pause or rest (known as a Ross Barkley 😂), and we will disqualify your time. If you've not heard of the Ross Barkley 5k WR, look it up.

Once you've finished your run, send your Strava or Garmin link to your captain, then you will be added to the pan-EU ranking. Find your captain and region HERE.


Each month we have AG points awarded (under '40s) (40-49) (50-59) (60+), so you only race your AG, but the league table can be won by a 30 or 60. Every point counts. Points are awarded; 20, 18, 16, 14, 12, 10, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1 in each AG

VR5 dates are,
• 26th November
• 31st December
• 28th January
• 25th February
• 25th March

Each year Zoot has donated some fantastic prizes, so you e got to be in it to win it.
