Club Handicap Races

Every year, the club runs a series of events called “The 2 Mile Handicaps” or time trials. These are great fun!

2 Mile Handicaps

We currently run the handicap races on the second Tuesday of each month. This means that they are completely optional and separate to the Wednesday club night. Runners set off at timed intervals and go round a 2 mile course. Each time you run, your setting off time is adjusted (to the second) with the aim that everyone will get to the finish line together. By halfway through the year, even the fastest and slowest runners are racing against each other on the final straight to get to the finish line first!  Runners are awarded points after each event based on how much their time has improved, and there are awards for the best improvers at the end of the year.
