September 2016 – Club Handicap

On Wednesday, 07 September, we ran the 3rd event of the 2016/17 Handicap season and the 99th in the history of my involvement with it.  It was competed under the same conditions that have been in place since the first run in October 2006.  In its time, the Handicap has proved to be a popular, fair and very successful event for our members, giving anybody, of whatever ability, an equal chance to win.  There have been a couple of tweaks to the scoring system over the years, concerning an increase in the number of finish points available. As the average number of runners changed from 19 in the first two seasons to the current figure of 39, the finish points have moved from 10 to 15, and then to 20.

On Wednesday it seemed that everyone wanted to run which left us rather short of helpers!  Thanks to Pete Tozer,  Alastair and Peter Grecian who, having roared round the course somewhat quicker than of late, assisted with handing out the finish discs on the pavement side.  He was first of the 40 runners to finish but demoted to 2nd having started a minute too early!  Debbie Gilmore therefore takes line honours with a 1:28 lowering of her PB. 3rd was newcomer on the night, Karen Fletcher, who probably surprised herself by running 2:30 quicker than she had predicted.

7 people ran PBs including Anthony Whelan, fastest man on the night whose time of 16:47 puts him 11th in the Top 15 list.  First timer Daisy Street was fastest lady in 22:31 and 14 others achieved SBs.

I’m indebted to Richard Kirk who has worked his magic and made it possible to attach the complete result with this post.

Showing September 2016 run from season 2016 / 2017 on 2016-09-07 with base time 35:00.
