Boot Race is a 5 km handicap race. For those who have never run a handicap race, or need a reminder, each runner starts the race based on his/her best 5 km time in the past year. If everyone matched his/her time exactly, everyone would cross the finish line together. BUT, if you can beat your best time, you come across the line just a little bit ahead of everyone else.
Come on out and have some fun.
Maps will be provided electronically, closer to the event.
Watch for others using the pathways.
Saturday 4 February 2017, 12 Regina Road Runners and friends met at the City of Regina Fieldhouse for the Regina Road Runners Club 2017 Prediction Mile.
The runners ranged from 11 years to older-and-wiser. We had walkers and runners participate. Neither group was expert at counting laps. Everyone had lots of fun cheering on their teammates.
Winning this year was Tom Maher. Congratulations, Tom! Also congratulations to Mitchell Japp and Jeannette Taylor in 2nd and 3rd. Honourable mention to Jaime Lavallee for 4th. Doug Hynne and Petra Dueck tied for the third fastest pace overall.
Also of note, there were 3 participants 16 and under. Austin Taylor had the fastest pace overall and was notably only 20 seconds from prediction (7th overall). Alexander Taylor had the second fastest pace overall and came in 11th. Mustafa Aldulaymi was beat his prediction by 4:29 which was incredible as he had based his prediction on last year’s performance — a spectacular improvement!
There was fruit, pizza, and pop for everyone afterwards.
||Difference from Predicted
Prediction Mile is fast approaching – February 4th! At the Sportplex Fieldhouse.
The Prediction Mile will run at 20:00 (8:00 PM). Be there by 19:45 to make sure you are ready to go at 20:00.
What is a Prediction Mile? You just have to predict how long it will take you to run one mile on the track and whoever is closest to their prediction, wins! No timing devices allowed though!
Sounds easy, right? If you aren’t within 5 seconds of your prediction, get practicing! Of course, winning isn’t everything and just winging it works too!
Distance: 1 mile (1.6 km / 1760 yards / 5280 feet / etc.)
Start location: Fieldhouse track, 1717 Elphinstone Street, Meet by the track.
Start time: 8:00 PM, Saturday February 4, 2017.

What do I need? Whatever you need to run or walk seven complete laps of the outside lane at the Fieldhouse, plus one timing device.
Why a timing device? Everyone will take a turn running and a turn timing someone else, so everyone can participate, walkers or runners.
Congratulations to all the runners and walkers. Thank you for your support of Hope’s Home.
