ERR Virtual Motavation Results
Here are the results from the ERR Virtual Motavation 4 mile run series, which will be held on or about the last Thursday of each month.
They are in time order, but I also added a ‘Rank’ column, which shows everyone’s performance relative to their base pace, with a rank of 1 indicating the person who has improved by the most in percentage terms. As the series progresses, we’ll award points according to rank, in order to find a ‘winner’ overall.
See the bottom of the page for an explanation of base pace.

The Base Pace is calculated according to:
1. Your average pace in last year’s Motavations (*).
2. If you didn’t do any Motavations last year, your pace in last year’s ERR handicap race.
3. If you didn’t run last year’s handicap race, the handicap time I had calculated for you last year.
4. If there’s still nothing to go on, a suitable value, based on performance in the ERR Virtual Parkrun series.
Obviously, if I’m assigning an arbitrary handicap, then the idea will be to give everyone a chance, but I try to avoid anyone winning on this basis, as it probably means I’ve assigned the wrong handicap.
(*) Apart from Mark Tyrrell, who ran 1 Motavation last year so slowly that I beat him, so that time doesn’t count. As a result he is in category 4.
