Winter Handicap Rules

DRAFT OLD VERSION LIVE

The Rules

The first group will set off from 19h00 (sharp)

(Entries will not be accepted on the night of each race; however for the first round they will be accepted provided a 10k time is given.)

Please Note. Entries will only be accepted if accompanied by the entrance fee of £2.00 in total for the Series.

If you have not paid you will not get a time.

Each entrant will run a qualifying race and be given a handicap time based on their time. In the rounds the runners will start in several consecutive groups with a few minutes between each group. The group will be made up of runners with similar handicap times. The winner will be the runner who has improved their handicap in that round the most. There will be a trophy awarded to the winner for each of the six rounds and also trophies for the top finishers in the series. The winner will get 100 points towards their overall score, second 99 and so on downwards. The best 4 scores will count towards overall score, which also equates to being able to miss two races.

Entrants who are running for the first time and have not qualifiedwill not be awarded a winners trophy for that round or receive the points. This is to safeguard against any inaccurate times.

The race committee reserves the right to review the results and adjust where any one is adjudged to have given an inaccurate time estimate for the course.

Entrants will have to accept responsibility for there own safety whilst competing. Remember car drivers cannot always see a dark figure suddenly darting across a road in front of them in the darkness of winter.

  • You are required to wear reflective clothing.
  • No shortcuts are allowed as this will lead to automatic disqualification.
  • The entry fee fort the series is £2.00, which is hoped to cover the costs only.
  • Non payment will disqualify an entrant from winning any trophy.
  • Entry is strictly open to club members only.
  • In ear audio devices and headphones are not allowed. For safety & club insurance purposes.
