SUMMER HANDICAP SERIES

2017 Race Dates

This year's Summer Handicap series will take place over country tracks surrounding John Dillon's home near Bronnington. Race distance is approx 2.4 miles. Lifts will be sorted to and from the Rugby Club at the normal time.

The format will be reverting to the popular chase handicap system whereby runners are set off according to their handicaps with slower runners chased down by faster runners.

Handicap Dates
30th May

How it works

A series of four races. All members are given a handicap based on past race results or any other basis the handicapper can come up with!

The first person home is awarded 30 points, the next 29 points and so on down to 1 point for the 30th and subsequent runners.

A competitor's best 3 scores will be used - you do not need to to run all the races to stand a chance of winning!
