Summer Handicap Series

What is it

Each year we have a series of 5 x 5K (ish!) races within the club, they are held during club sessions and are intended to be fun and social events open to any club member and are designed to ensure anyone could potentially win.

Every runner entering each race is given a handicap time by our club president Terry, these are worked out based on recent times in races and parkruns or just by watching people run and are normally scarily accurate. People who have not run the course before normally have the first race to check their handicap time and cannot score points in that race.

The course

The course is a well marshalled, undulating single lap in the beautiful countryside around Ware, starting and finishing in Thundridge.
