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. 

The first place person receives a penalty of 30 seconds, 2nd place 20 seconds, 3rd place 10 seconds for the Long Course or 20, 10 and 5 seconds for the short Course.

Points are awarded as follows 20 for 1st, 19 for 2nd, 18 for 3rd and so on. 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.

July Handicap Results

A good turnout for the July handicap. An eventful handicap in that we had the unusual problem of the stopwatch resetting itself during the event. However some quick thinking from Mark has meant that we can work out what times members ran to hopefully within a few seconds of what they may have on their own watches. However due to the problems with the timekeeping on the night and due to members not running off their correct start times we managed to present the winners plaque to the wrong person sorry Emma.

The winner was in fact Claire Pither who knocked over 2 minutes off her time, Emma finished in 2nd place with Fiona close behind in 3rd. Also breaking their times were Ella and Sam. Graham ran an excellent race to finish within a couple of seconds of his handicap time. Well done to all and congratulations to Claire a good victory.

In the overall series, Emma has now took the lead by 2 points from Graham, with Jennifer a further 10 points behind in 3rd place. With still 5 handicaps left to run this year there are still a few possible contenders for the overall series. Hopefully at least one of the handicaps will also be run without some either getting lost, going the wrong way or the stopwatch malfunctioning

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.
