Handicap 2010

Previous Results: 2009 ¦ 2008


The club handicap is a members only series, that does not require any pre-entry and is open to all club members. All are welcome to participate from beginners to seasoned runners, including those who are not full members trying us out. However only fully paid up members scores will actually count.  If you wish to participate, you just have to turn up to the normal club training session.
Runners start the race according to a handicap time calculated from a recent race. This is usually calculated from the previous handicap race or a recent race if a suitable time is not available. However, times are checked against recent race performances to prevent people running slow to gain an advantage for next time. Runners start from the slowest runner to the fastest so that eveyone finishes the race together, so anyone can win! Points are awarded based on your finishing position.
To be eligible to win, runners must complete at least 4 races and have raced at each distance.

To help the event run smoothly, the organisers ask the following:

  1. Anyone who has not raced the series before should make themselves known to the organisers in the Mark Hall meeting room BEFORE the warm up jog to the start area and provide a race time (ideally 5K, 5 mile or 10K).
  2. Please familiarise yourself with the route - maps are on the website via links below!
  3. Please check your start times so you do not miss your slot.
  4. Those who are not full members should make themselves known to the organisers and DO NOT go through the finish.
  5. If you are running 'slow' as a training run or to accompany another runner, please DO NOT go through the finish.

Apologies if any of these dates clash with any races you may have planned, but the commitee did its level best to spread the races out over the spring/summer period where weather/light conditions would be safe to run and avoiding the busy 5K/10K season. The later dates may be subject to change.

Important Announcements

RACE RULES: Members are reminded that it is now against UKA and BARR rules to swap race numbers WITHOUT permission from the race organisers.  If a runner of an affiliated event is found to be in breach of this rule, then the runner can be disqualified and further sanctions applied to both the runners and their clubs.
