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.
Senior September Handicap Report
This month’s handicap was run in near perfect conditions. So it was no surprise that 7 members broke their handicap times.
Jackie McClaren won this month’s race knocking over 4 minutes of her time she even managed to not get lost this month. Dave Reay ran well to finish in 2nd place knocking 2 and half minutes of his handicap time. Mark Davinson took a surprise third place knocking nearly a minute of his time. Well done to all who broke their handicap times and to all who took part.
In the overall series Mark Charlton now has commanding lead over the rest of the club, it will take a very determined person to catch him up and challenge for the overall series trophy.

Junior September Handicap Report
The conditions for the junior handicap were excellent for running good times and
the juniors did not disappoint.
This month 16 juniors ran 3 of them competing for the first time well done to Adam
Wilkie, Laila Pipe and Leo Burdon.
There was a close competition for the monthly handicap with 3 juniors athletes
breaking their handicap times. Noah Williamson finished in 3rd place, Grace Pither
finishing in a very good 2nd place. However the winner this month knocked 12
seconds off his handicap time congratulations to Alex Allen on an excellent win.
In the overall series we are down to a possible three winners Noah has a slender
lead at present, however both Oscar Burton and Lucy Pither can still over take him
if they both have good performances in the last handicap of the year.
The points highlighted in yellow on the overall table are your lowest points to score at
present. Good luck to all three in the last handicap of the series. Please remember
though that there is still an individual handicap plaque to be won. It would be good
to see a good turnout for the last handicap of the series.
The next handicap will be on October 11th
