The club handicap is a race designed to allow runners of all standards to compete together by applying a time penalty to the faster runners. The faster the runner; the bigger the time penalty.
Well done to everyone who ran the 1st "no watches" handicap on Tuesday - here are the results.
|4th September Results||XLS|
The race is run over a 4 mile course, starting outside Waitrose in King Harry Lane; down to the King Harry pub; right along Watford Road; right into Ragged Hall Lane; all the way along to the Holly Bush pub, sharp right into Bedmond lane; under the motorway; right across the field to Mayne Avenue; up Mayne Avenue to King Harry Lane; and the classic sprint finish back to Waitrose.
The slowest runner starts first; the fastest starts last. If the handicaps are worked out correctly, all runners will cross the finish line at the same time.
There will be a trophy for the winner (the first runner over the line), and medals for 1st, 2nd and 3rd. Trophy and medals will be presented at the club dinner in November. Runners will be allocated a race number & start time at the start.
Please pin the race number to the front of your running vest (please bring your own safety pins) The race is intended to be a low key event; there will be minimal marshalling; no roads will be closed; there will be no official finish times. All runners are individually responsible for crossing roads and staying safe.
