Handicap 2021

posted in: Home, News, News Club Running Events | 0

Salvaging what we can from the 2021 season we are staging three Summer Handicap races over the next two months.
For established members this is an opportunity to show your clubmates how you have kept in shape over the lockdown periods, or not as the case may be. For the more recently joined members here’s your chance to engage in some friendly rivalry on a levelled playing field.

 

Note these dates:

  • Wednesday 18 August
  • Wednesday 1 September
  • Wednesday 15 September

All races start at 7pm

You must be a paid up member to take part, and unfortunately we are not able to accommodate guests this year.
The format is a little different this year and the start/finish has been re-located. You can find out all about it on the Summer Handicap page.

Update: 20 August 2021

The first of the three races on 18 August attracted 32 men and 13 women. Results were fairly evenly grouped around the scratch time of 37 minutes showing that runners were fairly accurate in predicting their finishing times for the starting list, much appreciated by the handicapper.

For the purists, the change of starting/finishing points added ca 0.1 mile to the course length.

The next race on 1 September will be interesting as the handicaps will have been adjusted according to Race 1 results.
