|Senior Monthly Handicap Series
The Senior Monthly handicap takes place on the first Tuesday of each month. the winner is the person who gets closest to or knocks the most off their time. A plaque is awarded to each monthly winner at the annual presentation evening.
Each monthly handicap time is based on the athletes previous 6 races not 6 months with the best time to count. The handicap times are also reviewed at the end of each year, and your handicap for the January handicap will be either your best time from your last six races if done within the last two years or your best handicap time from the last two years if you have done less than six races in that period.
The yearly winner is the person with the most points from their best 8 handicap races.
For both the Summer and winter Handicap you will have a choice of doing either the short Course (3.7 Mile winter, 3.6 Mile summer) or a long Course (5.5 Mile summer, 5.7 Mile winter). All all those taking part will be required to nominate what course they are doing before they start the handicap.
