Time Trial

What is the Time Trial?

Every 3 months, Social Run Club hosts a 5K & 10K Time Trial. We have a set course that we run and you get to see where you're at. Whether this is your first time or you're trying to beat your last time, it's a good opportunity to get out and be active. Plus it's something to motivate you and train for.

Time Trial vs Race

So whats the difference between a Time Trial and a Race?


  • An official course, that is has been measured. There are bibs and timing chips. It's legit.


Social Run Club Time Trial 

  • It's a bunch of people getting together to push our limits. It is organized to be the minimal amount of planning effort.

  • No chips, no KM markings, no water stations or ribbons/prizes.

  • We do our timing the old fashion way: with a stop watch.

  • Just come out and jog, run or race the course you want to.

  • We'll got go brunch after!


We start at David Lam Park, then head along the sea wall to and around Science World, then back the way we came. We also have a quick course run through video on Youtube:
