Club Handicaps

What are the club handicaps?

The Club Handicap is a run event which is currently being run in person and virtually. It takes place from 1st to 7th of each month for the rest of 2021 but from June we will also be hosting an actual in person event. From June until September this will take place on the first Wednesday of every month at Whitlingham.  We will then review at the end of the summer. 

In Person

If you wish to participate in person, you will need to book for this event via the TA training page as we are only allowed to host a group of 30 people. 

It is run with a staggered start so that everyone can finish more or less together. You will start on the minute closest to your expected run time.  You can run in small groups or on your own depending on who else is about and what they expect to run.  Our standard distances are 5k and 10k based upon the Norwich Tri 5k run course, which is a single lap for 5k, two laps for 10k.  It is possible to run a lap of the lake for 3.5k or another distance. We’d rather people were cautious on their predictions so finished slightly ahead of time, rather than finished way behind their time.

We will start the stop watch at 7pm and aim for everyone to finish at 8.20pm.

Virtual

If you are not able to attend for Wednesday night event (or have offered to volunteer!) then please run your 5k/10k on a flat route at some point between 1st and 7th of each month. Please post your times to the FB event page or email virtual-events@trianglia.co.uk so that we can include you in the results. 

Feel like volunteering? 

Assistance is needed with timekeeping, starting runners, capturing names at the finish, opening and closing the gate into the picnic meadow. To help out please contact Ali Masterson on virtual-events@tri-anglia.co.uk with the heading VOLUNTEER HANDICAP, or through Facebook either by direct message or through our facebook group.

Cost: The event, whether you run it virtually or in person, is free. Please note that we are currently not able to offer refreshments after the event. The Whitlingham cafe will be closed but there are toilets available in the Flint Barn car park.  

 Please park in the Country Park’s car parks, the revenue from the car parks pays for the up keep of the park that we use.  As Tri-Anglia members we get a significant discount on annual parking permits. Application for parking permits.

2021 Handicap Challenge

  • If you want to run the Handicap in person this event will take place on the first Wednesday of every month from June until September at Whitlingham Country Park. You must sign up for this event on the Training Events web page. We are hosting a maximum of 30 runners. Please read the small print carefully! Stopwatches will start at 7pm for a staggered start, with the event scheduled to finish at 8.20pm, so if you run 5k in 30 minutes please be ready to start at 7.50pm. Times will be collected by a timekeeper when you finish this event
  • If you want to run the Handicap virtually, this event will run from 1 to 7 of every month from June until September. Please be consistent in your route choices! Please post your times to the FB event page or via email to virtualevents@tri-anglia.co.uk If you post them anywhere else, they may not be picked up and counted.
  • If you would like to pick up some brownie points, you can volunteer for the in person Handicap and then run the event virtually at some point during 1st to 7th of each month. If you can volunteer I need a starter/name collector, timekeeper and a marshall to put out arrows. Please contact me if you are able to volunteer. Many hands, light work.
