Dec Handicap Race
Sunday 10th December meet 10am for a 10:15 start
Part of the Harriers Challenge 2023
Four times a year we hold the Harriers Handicap Race. Each race is open to all adult members and advanced juniors.
The winner is the first to complete a lap of the course on the Chase (approx. 4.4 miles). To make it fair, the faster runners are delayed from starting. It is this handicap that makes the run interesting and gives everyone an equal chance of winning. To keep people from “underestimating” their speed people can’t win the race on their first attempt. Recent race results can also be used as evidence of current performance.!
Map of the route and marshal points
Ed Smith is in charge of setting people’s handicaps, and helpers for marshalling and timekeeping are required.
HELPERS REQUIRED — please put your name down
For people in the Challenge there are two points available for helping.
