Autumn Handicap, 26th October 2020

Results are here. Thirty runners took part in the Autumn Handicap, which once again was a virtual affair. Most chose a 4 mile route near their home, but a significant number did brave the wind and run the Quayside course this evening. Well done to everybody who took part. It is a shame that this …

Summer Handicap, 27th July 2020

For the second club handicap of the Covid-19 era, runners were given the choice of a 5K route of their own choosing (not downhill!) or running the real Summer Handicap course in Exhibition Park and over the Town Moor hills. The weather wasn’t very kind for those who waited until today – I bet it …

Virtual Spring Handicap, 27th April 2020

As we have had to leave the Town Moor cows grazing on the hills in peace, this year’s Spring Handicap has been a virtual affair. The protocol was to run 5K on a course that had as much up as down and submit your time. Amazingly, 46 runners took part, running in a variety of …

Winter Handicap, 27th January 2020

It was a nice night for running down at the Quayside – a bit cold, but it is January. However there was a relatively low turnout of runners with 30 competing for the Winter Handicap trophy. As is often the case, new members were to the fore with Dave Roberts leading the pack home with …

Autumn Handicap, 28th October 2019

Congratulations to Michael Teasdale and Clare McKitterick for winning the Handicap race and the Autumn Cup respectively. On a cold, but dry night without much in the way of wind, 36 runners assembled at the Copthorne for the quarterly handicap.  Michael Teasdale took full advantage of his generous handicap as he stormed past Alison Smullen …

Summer Handicap, 29th July 2019

It was a warm, humid evening on the Town Moor for this year’s Summer Handicap.  From a lower than usual turnout of 30 runners, Arthur Liu led the pack home to claim the title.   John Bell finished second with handicap debutant Maria Duenas in 3rd place.  Arthur had fooled the handicapper by coming last in …

Spring Handicap, 29th April 2019

Well done to Janet Palmer on winning the Spring handicap by a mile and to Julija Simpson, the winner of the Spring knockout trophy. A beautiful, sunny evening on the Town Moor with very little wind made for excellent running conditions. Numbers were down on recent events with only 32 competitors – though a number …

Winter Handicap, 28th January 2019

Congratulations to race winner Heather Steel and Hazel Juggins on winning the Winter Cup on a very cold night at the Quayside. It is good to see Heather getting back to her best and starting to good times again, but I think having time off to become a Mum is a pretty extreme method of …

Autumn Handicap, 29th October 2018

It was a cold night down on the Quayside but at least it was dry with little wind, which made   a pleasant change for our 46 runners after some of our recent weather!  Once again we welcomed numerous guests (old friends and new ones), which always adds a bit of interest (especially for the handicapper!). …

Claremont RR Summer Handicap, 23rd July 2018

It was a sticky, warm evening on the Town Moor with little of the usual wind to cool us down but at least we avoided the rain which affected other parts of the city. Although the number of club members was down on the usual handicap attendance, we were swelled by a lot of guests. …
