2020 Dual Duel Virtual Event Guidelines will be as follows:
- Two partners per team. Age divisions grouped by adding ages and gender make up. (M/M, F/F, M/F)
- Partners will alternate legs for a total of 10 miles (Approx. 5 miles each)
- Legs are recommended at quarter-mile lengths, but can be any length from 1/8 of a mile (220 yards) to 1-mile each. If you are not using a track, it is recommended that an online mapping program be used to ensure lap accuracy.
- Example: You choose to make your lap “Around the Block” which is, according to MapMyRun is .30 miles. (three-tenths) This would equal 33.33 laps in 10 miles. Each partner would run 16 full laps. then each partner would run out-and-back for one-third of a mile to finish out the 10 miles. [You may need to do some math first.]
- If you run on a normal metric track, then one runner needs to run an extra 100 yards to make up the slight under-run. A Metric track is about 10 yards short per mile. Most tracks in the Portland area are metric.
- No meet records are at risk this year.
- Scores will be reported through Huber timing.
