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 those taking part will be required to nominate what course they are doing before they start the handicap.
Senior December Handicap Report
A good turnout for the last handicap of the year with 18 senior members running and a good night for running.
The December handicap was won by Angela Riberio who knocked nearly 2 minutes of her time Dave Murray finished in an impressive 2 nd place again breaking his handicap time, Kelly Dunn finished in a determined 3 rd place.
Well done to all who took part and congratulations to Angela on a fine win. Ben, Tom and Nicole all ran qualifying times for the handicap well done to all three.
In the overall series we saw a very close finish to the competition coming down to the last handicap race of the year. It was also a close finish between the two contenders with Dave just catching Kelly in the last few hundred meters to win the overall competition for the 2 nd time Dave last won the handicap series 17 years ago in 2002. Well done to both Dave and Kelly for giving us a tremendous climax to the handicap series and for all their determination throughout the year.
