October Handicap

An excellent turn out for the junior handicap with 32 juniors taking part.

It was a very close contest for the monthly handicap with just three seconds separating the top three juniors in 3rd place was Connie Innes who knocked 12 seconds of her time, in 2nd place was Kathryn Pye who knocked 14 seconds of her time well done to both girls. This Month’s winner was Callum Drummond who knocked 15 seconds of his time and also set a new course record in the process of 3:13 seconds an excellent run well done Callum. In all 8 juniors broke their handicap times. There were also three new qualifying times set well done to all three girls.

In the overall series Abby Talbot ran a very good race breaking her handicap time by 6 seconds finishing in 5th place on the night and securing a well earned victory in the overall series. Jacob gave it his all finishing just 3 seconds outside of his handicap time to finish in 2nd place overall. Callum’s excellent run promoted him into 3rd place 1 point ahead of Isla Wilkie.

This year has given us a lot of new records and some excellent PB’s and a lot the juniors can be very proud. Well done to everyone who has took part throughout the year and thank you to all those that have volunteered to help out in various ways throughout the year.

The next junior handicap will not be until March, so there is plenty of time for the juniors to improve their fitness and show us just how much they can improve during their winter training.
