Summer Handicap, 26th July 2021

The sun came out to greet the return of the Claremont handicap to the Town Moor for the first time in 2 years.  This made it a very pleasant evening for the vast team of marshals and officials, but I am sure that I am not the only runner who wished they could turn the …

Spring Handicap, 26th April 2021

Even if we couldn’t run the handicap as usual, it was nice that we could run in groups of up to 6 and a number of us took advantage of this to start together and have an element of competition over the hills on the “real” Town Moor course. Others chose their own 5K route …

Winter Handicap, 25th January 2021

Four miles is a long way to run with nobody to chase! So well done to the 31 runners who braved the ice and the cold and ran in our 4th virtual handicap. Don’t worry, back to the summer course next, so it will be shorter! Times were affected by the weather as, depending upon …

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 …
