Summer Timed Handicap Race Series

A great fun member event with a touch of competitiveness where anyone could be the winner and win prizes! Races are 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. You will need to run 4 of the 6 races to complete the series and place in the overall series results. For those taking part and paying for the whole series, or volunteering in 4 or more races, there will be a commemorative gift.
