Summer Runs

Look out for our Summer Runs in 2014. Details in regard to meeting arrangements will be circulated nearer the time.

Cumberland AC – Handicap Series 2013

The main objective here is to offer a fun-to-run and accessible competition to our members that jointly spices up quiet racing months, and contributes towards maintaining, or developing, sharpness. The following dates have been selected to avoid the races in our championship and the summer run excursions. However, these dates are subject to change to account for clashing with popular local races and enable some flexibility on the winter handicap where icy roads may prove risky. It is my intention to ensure changes, if any are needed, are made in timely fashion, and notification will be given on Tuesday club nights and via our website.

This series will the first to be run using a baseline handicap, following the recent trial run, and the detail from our pilot series last year. It is, therefore, no secret that we use this series to warmly welcome the participants of the ‘learn to run’ course into the family of runners at our club who can expect to enjoy a healthy bias in their favour.

I look forward to seeing you – Happy Running
