Handicap races

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.

April Handicap Report
A cool sunny night for running our first summer handicap. The conditions underfoot were however very wet and muddy making running a fast time very difficult. However one member did manage to break his handicap time on the night. Scott Laight had an excellent run knocking just under a minute off his time. Well done Scott on a very well deserved handicap win. John Donneky had an excellent run finishing in 2nd place and Sam Redgate finished in a strong 3rd place.

There were two qualifiers this month Dave Reay and Haydn Williamson. Well done to both.

In the overall series Jayne still has a good lead however the chasing pack have all made up some points . Mark Charlton is still in 2nd place 8 points ahead of John Donneky in 3rd while Sam is a further 7 points behind in 4th. There is still along way to go, remember it’s your best 8 races to count.

The next Handicap will on Tuesday 1st May, let’s hope the ground has dried up alot and the weather is a lot warmer.
