Winter Handicap – January
January 11 - January 15
Sunderland Strollers Winter Handicap 20/21
This years Winter Handicap will be run virtually, during the second week of Oct/Nov/Jan/Feb/Mar you will have from 0001hrs Monday until 2359hrs Friday to record a 5K run and provide me with the details, ideally output from Garmin or Strava or simply a photo of your watch screen.
Your time will be adjusted according to the last set of handicaps created following the last edition of the 2019/20 handicap. This will provide me with a set of net times from which a finishing order can be constructed and points awarded.
Please select your own 5K course, you’re more than welcome to use the established course at the sea front but any 5K will do, ideally the same course for each of your runs throughout the competition so if you mainly run in the evenings select somewhere that has sufficient lighting.
Your honesty is assumed, please don’t attach your watch to a passing car, use the bus or enlist the assistance of a friendly racing llama.
For those who didn’t participate in last years handicap I will need you to provide me with your most honest estimate of your optimum 5K time. It may all sound a bit complicated but will become clearer after the first round.
So your first chance to take part is from the morning of 12 October and you have until midnight on 16 Oct to submit your run details to me either through Facebook Messenger or to firstname.lastname@example.org
