Winter Handicap

The Winter Handicap runs each month from October to March and takes place on the last Tuesday of each month, with a 7.05pm start (approx.).

Scoring: Each runner takes part in a time trial prior to the first handicap race. Handicaps are then calculated on the basis of this time. The slowest runner will start first and the fastest runner last. Points are awarded to the first 12 finishers with first receiving 12 points down to one point for twelfth 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.

Course: Start at the bollards on the new cycle track by the Business School (just beyond Van Mildert College). Run along new cycle track to the A167. Turn left and run along to the Cock of the North roundabout (pavement/old cycle track). Loop around the bolllard at the end of the cycle track which comes out of the housing estate about 20m before the roundabout. Then run back the way you came to the start. From the start you will then do one loop back up to the bollards at the main road and then back to the Business School (2.5 miles).
