After almost 2 years it was great to be back to a normal “classic format” handicap and the weather seemed pleased to seemed please to see us as well.
Not sure if it was people glad it is back, the good weather or the lure of free tea, coffee and pastries but we had 69 people turn up and run across the range.
A slight delay to the start due to a lock being changed on the pineapple gate, so a last minute adjustment to the start/finish was needed. However, all went off well thanks to our dedicated team of marshals lead by the Grindall’s.

The results from our Christmas Handicap 2021 are below. Well done to all those who took part.
This is a change to the normal handicap as run in pairs with the A and B runner setting off in opposite directions around the course. They then meet someone on the course hand over the relay cracker, turn around and return to the start. The first to arrive at the start continues down the course, finds their partner again and continue as a pair to the start/finish.
However, the first across the line is not always the winner, as hidden inside the relay baton cracker is a time adjustment, plus or minus, so the time is adjusted by this factor make for some interesting results!
Massive thanks to all the helpers, especially Sally Minks for coordinating all the helpers and arranging for the post-run mulled wine and mince pies.
