Winter Handicap Race #4

Our first handicap race of 2024 took place this evening with everyone suffering post Christmas blues only 8 members turned out and our first guest runner. Despite the low turnout we had our closest finish yet with everyone within seconds of each other going up the final hill and the winner was only decided in the final sprint.

In the end guest runner Gareth Irvine was first back as he went quicker then predicted on his handicap by over a minute (it’s always hard to get someones handicap time correct on first attempt) however from 2nd to 8th everyone finished in the next 30s. It was an amazing site to see everyone sprinting to the finish and for 9 runners they got a new PB to start the year.

Also the course record was smashed as Jonathan Page lowered in to 16:31 which is an amazing time.

This was the 4th race and to qualify for the final 5th race which is the championship race, you had to run 2 out of the first 4. Big well done to Victoria and Nicola H. who have done all 4 so far. Out of the 22 who first entered 18 have all run at last two and have qualified for the championship race.

The winner of our last race will be crowned champion and we will also award trophies to the faster female and fastest male of the series.
