Perform two separate 5km runs during the week.
First 5km Run: Escape
For the first run, you play the role of the escapee and must set your best effort 5km time. Points are awarded for time achieved.
Second 5km Run: Hunt
For the second 5km run, you play the role of the Hunter Force and must set out to beat the time set on your previous run. Points are awarded if you successfully manage to beat your previous time set.
Each run must follow the same route
Your second run must be performed on the same route as your first run.
Start and finish in the same location
To ensure that participants don't just run down a big hill to get a good time/distance, you are required to finish the run in roughly the same spot in which you started. You can achieve this by either running a looped route or by running out halfway, turning around, and returning to your starting position.
Set treadmill gradient to 2.5%
