Winter Handicap 2018-19 – Race 1 – 23 October 2018


Provisional Results


There were 18 participants in the first Winter Handicap of the season, of whom 7 were women and 11 were men. Six runners were competing for the first time.


Gary Springwas the first runner back, with Grace Smiththe first woman back. Gary and Grace therefore head the leaderboards with 15 points each. The Handicapper will punish Gary and Grace  appropriately for doing so well!


The fastest run of the night was by Harry Lawson, whose 29:05 was more than five minutes faster than the next best time. Impressive running, Harry.


The fastest run by a woman was Grace Smith’s42:36, with Anne Webb just 10 seconds slower.


Kevin Frost ran the fastest age-graded time by a man. Anne Webbran the best age graded time by a woman.


These results are provisional.


Winter Handicap 2018-19 – Race 2 – 27 November 2018


Provisional Results


A rather chilly and drizzly night night saw 14 runners in the second race of the season, of whom two were running for the first time this year. Tougher conditions than in Race 1 meant that, on the whole, race times were slower. Apart from the competitors, a number of other ORs were around but not yet ready to test themselves against the clock – pity, as the small number of competitors meant that plenty of handicap points were up for grabs.


Kirsty Staveley  was the first runner back, with Pat Sullivanthe first man back. Kirsty and Pat therefore pick up 15 handicap points for their efforts. The Handicapper has punished Kirsty and Pat and their starting times will be 30 seconds harder next time… Kirsty and Lynn Hills lead the Handicap competition for the women, and Gary Spring leads it for the men. With the best four results out of five to count, no one has a commanding lead at this stage.


The fastest run of the night was by Ben Stradling in 34:41, eight seconds faster than Joe Sullivan. Harry Lawson’s Race 1 time of  29:05 remains the fastest run of this season, and looks tough to beat.


The fastest run by a woman was Anne Webbin 44:35; Anne’s run was also the best age graded performance by a woman (though not as fast as her season leading run in Race 1).


Gary Spring’s age-graded 29:26 was the best age graded performance by a man on the night, though Kevin Frost’s age-graded 28:57 in Race 1 remains the season’s best age graded time by a man.


These results are provisional.
