The second installment of the Winter Handicap was run around the two lap course in Ten Shilling Wood today. 40 runners completed the 3.12 miles in slightly muddy conditions than last time.
Apart from the mud another new appearance this month was digital timing! In the second test of the system with Massey, runners were barcoded up and scanned at the finish – manual timings and recording were done as a back up. But I am pleased to report the system was perfect and greatly assisted the processing of the results. This test run on a real race will stand us in great stead for future races.
Jenna Pogue & Dean Clarke needed no manual or digital timings to tell them that they crossed the line only a few seconds apart to claim 1st place in the male and female competition.
Again we are trying to maintain the racing and element of surprise in the final league placing right up until the final race in February so each races individual points score is being kept secret for now, but for those interested in their individual times (handicaps removed) please find them below.
