10 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.

FRED PEARCE VIRTUAL 5K RELAY – THE SEPTEMBER CHALLENGE

We’ve decided to make your 5 kilometre clocking in September the basis for a Virtual Fred Pearce Relay. This race has always been a highlight of of our season, commemorating the immeasurable contributions to our club of both father and son. In recent years Dave Evans has mixed and matched competitors into teams of three with a view to orchestrating a close fought final leg. Exciting and good fun!

Hence we are asking if you would indicate if you would like to be in Dave’s mix. He will use as a starter the 5k times from June with due cognisance of improvements since then over the longer distances. We very much hope our friends and guests from Scotia and beyond will participate. In addition we would welcome your involvement even if this is your first appearance in the Club Series.

Therefore it would be enormously helpful to Dave as the handicapper and creator of the teams if you could let us know if you are happy to be involved by September 21st. 5k times will be accepted up to midnight, October 1st.

James Pearce and Bronte were hoping for better weather this year. It will have to be a sunny 2021 then

Hoping very much you will be part of our effort to keep up our collective spirits and our commitment to remembering Fred Pearce Senior and Junior as they were affectionately known.
