5 KILOMETRES HANDICAP

The race within a race based on handicap allowances was a traditional feature of Race Walking events across the decades at a club level, but particularly within Open races. Entry forms would always ask for one’s latest performance to assist the handicapper decide on your allowance based on the fastest prospective competitor starting from scratch i.e. having no handicap allowance. The handicap race was seen as providing motivation for athletes throughout the field – from a younger walker breaking through to a seasoned veteran still striving to do do their best.

Roy Gunnett hasn’t got a double chin. There’s another walker on his inside!! Ta to Greg for the image.

Thanks to everyone involved, especially Marco and Mary from overseas. A warm Lancashire welcome to you both. We’ll have a word with the handicapper!!

This month’s distance is 8 kilometres, very close to the classic British distance of 5 miles, now long forgotten. In the next week I’ll do a post reviving memories of the significance of this distance in the history of our club.

I’ve already received a couple of early clockings. Everyone on their marks.
