The latest results are now available here. It is of course still early days for any results to be significant, as this revised season ends in June. However its pleasant to see that we have more active participants than we would have had in previous years! Remember that the next Handicap is on December 4th, and the January 2020 Handicap is deferred to 8th January!
The October Handicap Results can be found here. Remember this is only Month 2 of 10 months ending in June 2020 – its a Marathon not a sprint! Though thinking about it everyone who completes all 10 runs will have covered more than 35 miles – its your very own Ultra-Marathon!
For newcomers, a brief explanation of key entries:
Congratulations to Jo Cole. Her actual time is 5m 16s inside her target time, so she comes top of the points score, not because she was the first home (though there may be a slight connection!)
Alan Barwick is a long-established member, but has not run the handicap for a long period, partly due to injuries, so his previous target time is deleted and he starts as a new entrant, and this month will set his target time for the next race.
4 of the last 5 timings are for new entrants to the handicap. Welcome to the series, and we hope that you will succeed in monitoring and improving your times. Your times this month set your target time for the next race.
The overall points table will appear from next month. As the footnote says, everyone entering gets an additional 2 attendance points, and new entrants get 3 points as a token for their initial entry. Serious points are earned from your next race onwards.
