How it Works
All club members will be automatically entered in this handicap event, we’ll calculate the handicap times and let you know at the start of June what these are.
Your handicap time is based on your best performance over 5k over the past 12 months and will be caluclated prior to May 31st. Full details at http://www.uknetrunner.co.uk/pages/hand ... dicaps.php
Will be the runner with the best time, handicap adjusted, in any of the parkruns they have run in June. The winner will get a 5k trophy presented at the AGM at the end of year plus the immortality of an entry on the honours board on the club website.
In addition to the main prize there will be a small prize (as yet to be determined) for the winners in the following categories.
• Most parkruns visited over the 5 weeks i.e Different parkrun locations.
• Most consistent performer. This is for any runner who has ran at least 3 parkruns in June. Their 3rd best time will be used.
• Best age-graded performance. The age-graded scores are listed against each performance on the parkrun website
