The monthly summer 5k club handicap is back; returning to our newly UK Athletics measured and approved home course.
That means you can use the flat, fast route to go for official PBs and qualifying age grade times in a monthly race that – being a handicap – any club member can win and take home one of the new gold, silver or bronze medals that are up for grabs.
The races will be an additional option to the usual runs on the first Thursday of the month from April to September starting on 4 April.
If you ran in one of the two pilot try-outs at the end of last year, I will have a handicap time for you; if not, email me your best 5k time from the last 12 months.
Either way, email me by 6pm on Wednesday 3 April if you want to take part in the first race (to save on admin, there will be no entries on the night).
To make it all work, each month we will need an experienced timekeeper (or lessons can be given) and a couple of marshals; again, please email me if you can help.
