“It’s more than a race – It’s a Community!”
We want to develop the Windsor Womens 10k into much more than a race and by entering you have the opportunity to become a fledgling member. A community is only as strong as its members so please join our Facebook Group and get involved – with your help this group will continue to evolve. If you join us you will have free access to the following:
Closed Facebook Group
This is a closed Group available only to entrants into the Windsor Womens 10k and is the hub of our community.
This is where you can help each other out, offer feedback and insight whenever possible but please remember to be kind!
Let’s have some fun! Post your successes and your failures, questions, and challenges. Support others and seek support when you need it.
We have 3 running training programmes: Beginner, Intermediate and Improver.
These have been written by Peter Hier and James Thie and are available for download.
We have also added a very simple Stretching Programme for you and over the coming months we will be adding to this list
Slack is a messaging app for teams or groups. All the conversations inside the app are searchable and the app syncs seamlessly from your desktop to your mobile device. It is completely private and you can only gain access through invitation from Running4Women. It is brilliant for carrying on conversations about training, nutrition, injury, advice for beginners, setting up training groups amongst yourselves anything and everything! We will also get involved and answer as many questions as we can, you can learn a little more about Slack here
On The Day -The following are just a few of the things that will be available to you:
Every year we endeavour to produce a unique medal and this year is no different! We can’t tell you how difficult it is to design something that is different from the previous 13 years but we have no doubt that the designer will do so again.
Our Finisher Tshirt is custom designed and produced using APPIN Sports FAST-WICK™ fabrics which is technically known as ‘hydrophobic materials’ – simply put they don’t like water and do not soak it up. Cotton, on the other hand, loves sweat and moisture and holds on to it resulting in soaked, heavy, and cold clothing. Wicking fabrics allow sweat/moisture to pass through the fabric to reach the surface quicker, hence evaporating faster. The fabric also allows cooler air to pass through.
The Aerobic warm up is always a big favourite; with good music and a great instructor not only is it a great deal of fun but it really is a good way to get you in the mood and loosen up those joints and muscles. Couple this with little jog and you will be raring to go!
When you finish your 10k you will walk through the finish funnels where you will be presented with your medal, bottled water, then you will be directed to the Tshirt pick up point. There will be a strong Medical presence (as there is out on the course) to ensure that all is well with you.
There will be a variety of on site entertainment for Children including Bouncy Castles and Face Painters. There will also be a Sprite Sprint for 9 years and under which you can enter on the day and is approximately 40 metres and run on the grass alongside the Long Walk.
