Senior Monthly Handicap Series

The Senior Monthly handicap takes place on the first Tuesday of each month. the winner is the person who gets closest to or knocks the most off their time. A plaque is awarded  to each monthly winner at the annual presentation evening. 

Each monthly handicap time is based on the athletes previous 6 races not 6 months with the best time to count. The handicap times are also reviewed at the end of each year, and your handicap for the January handicap will be either your best time from your last six races if done within the last two years or your best handicap time from the last two years if you have done less than six races in that period.

The yearly winner is the person with the most points from their best 8 handicap races.

For both the Summer and winter Handicap you will have a choice of doing either the short Course (3.7 Mile winter, 3.6 Mile summer) or a long Course (5.5 Mile summer, 5.7 Mile winter). All all those taking part will be required to nominate what course they are doing before they start the handicap.

January Handicap Results
A good evening for running especially with it being February. Well done to all who took part in the monthly handicap. Well doen to Alison who who knocked over 6 minutes of her handicap time. A good 2nd place from the ever improving Jayne who knocked another 3 minutes of her handicap time. Mark had an excellent run finishing in 3rd place . In all 5 members  broke their handicap times. Well doen to Rachel who ran her first handicap on her first night at the club.

In the overall series Jayne has a 8 point lead from Mark with Michael in 3rd place. Our next handicap will be in 2 weeks time and it will be the last winter handicap until October. Hope to see you all there.

This year also sees the introduction of our new points system as we now have regularly more than 20 members taking part it was felt that we needed to have a new points system starting from 50 pts for 1st place, 48 for 2nd place, 46 for 3rd place and then going down by one point for each postion please see points system below:

2017 competitions

Senior Men's and Ladies Road Race Grand Prix Series

The Senior Grand Prix series is based around local road races that take place in our area. Each athlete has their own handicap for each distance (10Km, 10 Mile and 1/2 Marathon) or race if the race is not an exact distance such as the Blaydon race. The more time they knock off their time the more points they receive and the further away from their time the less points they receive. If you are doing a distance or event for the first time you will receive 40pts automatically.

The handicap time is based on the the athletes performances from the previous two years ie for 2013 handicap times it is the times form 2011 and 2012 that count.

For both the the men and ladies it is the best 8 events to count. The winners being the athletes with the most points at the end of the year.

Report
Some excellent running in the mud from the juniors today well done to both Brandon and emily who both had excellent runs from the fast packs in their races.
Isla Wilkie had another  good run finishing in 5th place in the U11's race. Lucy Pither and jacob both started their races well leading in the first few hundred meters, we sure you will both keep it going one day.

Unfortunately no team for the ladies today, the three who were there all ran well. The senior men all battled well through the mud with Mark Davinson having the run of the day finishing in 80th place running from the medium pack.
Well done to all who took part on a very tough course. especially Mark Charlton running in his first Harrier League event.
