The first of the new WINTER HANDICAP RACES was held on Wednesday 23/11/16
in really good conditions on the traditional 2 lap circuit of Lancaster Park estate.
Many thanks to all who turned out and supported the idea of reviving
the monthly handicap – a chance for club members to compete on a (supposedly!!)
level playing field and mix with members of other training groups.
Everyone seemed to enjoy it and as the results show there were some standout performances
across all age groups and gender – congratulations to all prize winners on the night.
First time I’ve organised a handicap so a bit of a learning experience for me –
thanks to Linda, Gordon Dixon, Dave Taylor, Paul Waterston
and George McDougal (for the numeracy wizardry)
for their support on the night.
Also thanks to Carol Parry for the prize contributions !
I didn’t give the prize list enough thought beforehand and I realise I didn’t award
a prize for the fastest ladies – apologies for that oversight and Helen King,
Lindsay Turnbull and Jane Briggs will find their prizes in the hut
as will Pam Woodcock & Gavin Bayne for their %age effort !
I’m working on one prize per person !
I will adjust handicaps for the next race, the CHRISTMAS HANDICAP
on Wednesday 14/12/16. For that race spend £5.00 on a prize,
wrap it up and it goes into the prize pot.
Winner of the race gets first pick..........!!
If you want to take part and haven’t given me your details please e mail me
with a current 5k time or go and blast 2 laps of Lancaster park
and I will add you to the list –
See you in December......ho ho ho !!!
