September Handicap 2018

With the third time running the new handicap route, we are well into a new season. More runners are trying the new route, more PBs are being set as well as more course records. Weather, whilst absolutely freezing first thing in the morning, is a perfectly comfortable 15 degrees around lunch time.

This month we had 20 participants and the average time was a commendable 23:41. 8 personal bests were set, and a new course records was set for the girls, again by Karen Connell with an incredible 21:16!! Paul Ashley also set out to beat Jon Sharkey’s course record of 16:55, but unfortunately missed out by 24 seconds. Nonetheless, it was a personal best for him as well! Who is going to try and smash it next month?

Special thanks again goes out all timers and the photographer, this event wouldn’t happen if it wasn’t for volunteers every month.

All times including some other metrics can be found below. PBs are highlighted in red. Some fantastic photos follow! Safe to say Jena Leach put in a real effort…

Well done to everyone, and hope to see you all out again next month!
