SUMMER HANDICAP SERIES

2019 Race Dates

This year's Summer Handicap series will again 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 the popular chase handicap system whereby runners are set off according to their handicaps with slower runners chased down by faster runners.

Handicap Dates
4th June
2nd July
23rd July
6th August

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 50 points, the next 49 points and so on down to 1 point for the 50th 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!

Handicaps for Race 2 2nd July 2019

Below are the handicaps and predicted times for Race 2 this year.

Please note, the handicapper is always right - but we have had to guess at a few times as the runners involved have not posted any useful race times.

Members who join after the first Handicap race are allowed to compete but are not awarded any points towards the competition as it is not possible to properly handicap them and their performances could unfairly affect the outcome.
