Race the Machine is raising £1,000 to bring the new virtual race for runners to reality.
What's Race the Machine?
Race The Machine is a new virtual race for runners - with an exciting twist - it's you against your own potential! All runners are at their best when they have a target to aim for. Race The Machine will provide hard but achievable projected time targets for runners to beat based on their recent best times.
From 1500 metres to a Half Marathon Race The Machine provides 7 different distances to choose from. If you beat the time given to you, you will receive a memento, an online certificate, and can move on to another race based on your new PB - encouraging long term improvement.
Whose this for?
Race The Machine is ideal for every level of runner, from those who only ever run at their local parkrun or have recently graduated from Couch To 5K - to experienced runners looking to shave seconds off their best efforts. Every runner benefits from realistic tailor made targets - and beating yourself and your expectations provides a unrivalled sense of satisfaction. Because of this Race The Machine medals and mementos will have a special place in runners affections.
Where is the Race?
Running events in 2020 are looking uncertain due to the global pandemic. Race The Machine should be well placed to inspire runners to push and achieve in 2021.
As the website is developed, training plans and advice will be added to help entrants beat their tailor made time.
Why are we crowdfunding?
I will use your donation to invest in prizes and mementos for successful entrants to their first Race The Machine race. These can be sourced more cost effectively when purchased in large quantities. I will also pay for web development and insurance costs.
Who am I?
I am the founder and chairperson of Montrose Flyers Running Club, after 3 years I have grown the club to over 60 members and have great experience motivating and providing creative structured activities for a diverse group of runners.
