he first handicap race of 2017 took place on Wednesday 25th Jan. The evenings weather was misty, wet and very cold, however 10 well wrapped up runners braved the conditions for the clubs 4th handicap run.
As the evening wore on, it turned out to be an evening full of firsts ………….
First timer Diane Tilston had an excellent run to grab 1st Place in 26m 47s, another first timer Stephen Sutton also had a great run to snatch 2nd Place in 20m 54s and finally Jan. Not only a first timer at the handicap race but also a new club member. He ran a super quick time of 18m 53s to take 3rd Place.
As always I would like to thank Mike Ridger (time keeper) and John Tilston (time recorder and, yes you guessed it, another first timer). Gents you did a great job.
The next Handicap run will be on Wednesday 22nd February at 7pm.
