Spring Handicap, 25th April 2022

The morning rain and cold had been replaced by a fairly pleasant evening, though there was still a bit of a chilly breeze – this is the Town Moor after all! So conditions were good for running with the paths over the hills nice and dry and just a little bit of mud in the …

Winter Handicap, 31st January 2022

Thankfully the wind had died down following the weekend’s storms as 33 runners took part in this year’s Winter Handicap. This included a number of guests, including 3 from a running group based at the Civic Centre. Maria Duenas acted as a guide for one of them who was first off and they soon discovered …

Autumn Handicap, 25th October 2021

On a surprisingly mild night, 35 runners took part in the Autumn Winter Handicap down on the Quayside. Alex Harding fooled the handicapper by running the Summer Handicap the day after a 24 mile run, thus registering an uncharacteristically slow time! He took full advantage and ran well this evening to romp home in first …

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 …
