Handicap Race Series

A great fun and social club event where anyone could be the winner and win prizes! Six races run over the same demanding course with runners setting off at staggered times depending on running ability; the slowest first and the fastest last with the aim that everyone finishes at roughly the same time.

The 2020 Handicap Series has been cancelled due to advice given on the coronavirus, however there will be a virtual option.

  • Entrants will be eligible for a commemorative gift if:
    £10 is paid for senior series course, or £4 for the junior series course, on or before the first race and run/marshal any number of races.
    You run and/or marshal a combination of four races, however your name must be on the official marshal rota before the race you help at.
    The junior commemorative gift may differ from the senior series gift.
  • The vets team for ladies and men starts at age 45

**For those who run all six races the best four times count towards the final results so your final placing is likely to be higher.

Marshals needed

Marshals (and other helpers) are needed for this event to go ahead. A marshal list will be put up in the clubhouse and ideally this needs to be full by the Tuesday before the race. If there are not enough marshals on any of the evenings the race may not be able to go ahead! Entrants are encouraged to marshal one race.
