Club Handicap

Our handicap races are run four times a year around Eccup Reservoir and the Harewood Estate.  These are run over five miles, with runners starting at staggered times calculated from recent race results, meaning even the slowest runner has the chance of finishing first and adding their name to the Handicap Trophy.  Friends, guests and newcomers are welcome to join in, and members can also pick up valuable Grand Prix points!  Dates will be added to the Events page as they are confirmed.
