Winter Handicap Race #5

The final race of our first ever winter handicap took place last night and out of the 22 people who registered, 20 people did at least one race and 17 qualified for the final race. Out of those 17 we had a fantastic turn out with 14 runners racing the championship race. The winner of this race would be the series champion for 23/24 and it was anyones guess who would win it.

Firstly a massive thank you to everyone who has volunteered over the series, your effort is much appreciated especially Sarah and Gill who have volunteered at everyone. So to the race and by the final hill we had a clear winner as Heather Lindley had opened up a massive gap. Heather was at top before 2nd place was at the bottom. However behind her there were seconds in it for the majority of the field. The two Nicolas completed the podium places and once again Jonathan Page continues to impress by knocking another 17s off the course record, running 16:14.

Afterwards we did a prize presentation in Zorro Lounge afterwards. 2nd and 3rd place both won a box of chocolates donated by Victoria and then trophies were awarded to Jonathan Page for the fastest male of the series, Molly Hayes for the fastest female of the series and Heather Lindley as our series champion.

Big shout out to both Victoria Patterson and Nicola Heaton who ran every race of the series. I have done a PDF of all the results and there has been some amazing improvements over the last 5 months. This can be found on the Handicap page by clicking here
