After restarting the handicap from Explorer House in August, we were then, sadly, had to pause again in January, as COVID variants became more wide spread and UK Gov’t/EA rules and guidance didn’t permit groups of more than 2 outside.
I think we all long for the day when we can congregate at the start line, moan that our handicap isn’t fair, grumble that the wind is in the wrong direction, discuss which way round is faster (anti-clockwise, all day long), but most importantly encourage other runners and have a good time TOGETHER
Its not very often I go all fan-boy, but this deserves it.
Jo Miles PB coming into the handicap was 29:30, from January 2019. 5k round OS later and her new PB is 26:42, an improvement of 2:48. I think most of us would give up alcohol &/or cake &/or one of our less vital body organs to knock 2:48 off our handicap PB.
