SJ Handicap Results – October 2019

The October handicap was run recently, with participants bearing braving the weather for the 4 mile run (was I basking in high 20s temperatures at that point? Yes I was).

There was a good turnout of 22 runners, with PBs set by Nerys Cooper and Dave Metcalfe, and SBs posted by Newton Johnstone and Dave Breslin. There was also a first handicap appearance for John Ellwood. The overall winner on the night was Nerys Cooper with a time of 34:40 and an impressive improvement of 1:50, just 1 second quicker more than Newton in second place!

The results were as follows…

And as for the current standings, well they are extremely close, with the top four runners separated by just 4 points! Here they are…

For those of you who have not taken part in the handicap, what are you waiting for?! It’s a monthly fun, club-run event, held on every second Wednesday of the month, in which you complete 2 laps of a 2 mile course. The finishing order is not determined by who came in quickest, but how you did against your own previous efforts, so you’re only racing yourself! It is a fun event, and there’s a curry afterwards, so what more could you wish for?!

Thanks as always to Simon and Anne Whillis for organising such an enjoyable club event, and we’ll see you all in November for the next handicap, taking place on Wednesday 13th November.
