Scoring: Handicaps are then calculated on the basis of previous handicap runs or if none have been done, a time trial. The slowest runner will start first and the fastest runner last. Points are awarded to the first 20 finishers with first receiving 20 points down to one point for 20th position. Handicaps are reviewed after each race. The runner with the highest total after the last race will be the winner and will win the Winter Handicap Trophy.
