Our annual Christmas Handicap race is back and this year’s theme is: Save our planet

This year we are going back to the couples/teams format. You will register via the session on Coacha. You don’t need to find a partner/running buddy as these are randomly drawn on the day.

On the day, arrive at the hockey centre at 9:00 AM to draw your partner and be issued with your Christmas cracker to use as a relay baton. You then will set off around the handicap course in opposite directions, meet somewhere on the course, hand over the baton, turn around and run back to the start. You and your partner must cross the line at the same time and then pull your cracker which has a time adjustment inside, so the winning team is not necessarily the first across the line.Prizes for first, second, third and last as well as the fastest team around the course. Mince pies and mulled wine (with a non-alcoholic alternative) will be served.

Course and starting place will be confirmed at the start so meet in the hockey centre to be allocated your partner and given further instructions. You must register via Coacha, there are no turn-up and go options. If you need to cancel please cancel via Coacha. However, if you are cancelling, you will need to let James know.

Please Note: We reserve the right to change the format due to weather, park conditions, etc

Please contact James or Sally with any questions.
