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:
It was very close but congratulations to the winners of the 2010 Hadicap series: Sharon Wright (won by faster handicapped times compared to second placed Susie Morley and Steve Edwards).

Race 6 (2.33M): 14th September ¦ Race Route ¦ Results
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.
