Monthly Handicaps

The Monthly Handicap is a long-standing regular feature of the Club's programme. Run on the last Thursday of every month, though this changes occasionally in December, the handicap has a chasing start with the slowest competitor off first, with following runners having timed handicapped starts based on their best recent time.

There are two courses, a winter town route of 3.45 miles and a summer rural course of 4.35 miles and also an annual points competition for those who wish to take part in the handicaps year round.

We have a very sociable Jacob's Join after each handicap in the bar at the YMCA.

To see the routes follow the links below to MapMyRun.

Winter Handicap Route

Summer Handicap Route

The 2017-18 Championship will commence on Thursday 27th April, back on the 4.35 mile Summer Handicap route.

Bill and Dawn have stepped down as organisers - many thanks to them for organising it for so many years - but it will continue under new management.

The new spreadsheet for this year's competition can be found below.

Good luck everyone!

Don't forget the baseline start time is at the earlier time of 18:20.
