February HTC Handicap

The Hoddesdon Tri Handicap is a race of 7.1km (4.41 miles) which is run race around our BSC clubhouse.

Unlike other road races you may have taken part in, the start of the handicap is staggered according to individuals’ past performances, so that all runners finish the race at about the same time. This is the brilliance of the handicap race – both fast and slow runners have a chance of winning. If all goes well, there is an exciting finish down the final straight. The race rewards not the fastest runner but the runner who performs best relative to their previous performance.

The handicap is held on the second Thursday of each month starting at 19:30 hours sharp.

Registration
You vote ‘IN’ on this event before the end of Wednesday so we can arrange start order. You must be warmed up at the start by 19:20 hours.

Please come wearing your running kit: you can change at BSC and leave your bags at BSC or in your car. Bags / personal belonging left at the start / finish line will not be specially looked after. It is suggested you wear a head touch.

The handicap is for members or associate members of Hoddesdon Tri Club and costs £2. 100% of the money will be donated to charity as follows: Jan-March MacMillan, April-June Dementia UK, July-Sep Addenbrookes children’s hospital and Oct-Dec Air Ambulance.

Following the race, a medal and trophy (passed to each winner every month) are presented. Awards will also be given to at the end of the year to the most improved male and female.

The organisers at their discretion may change a competitor’s start time if they believe it does not accurately reflect the runner’s ability. Any runner suspected of intentionally performing below their ability in order to skew results may be disqualified from the handicap competition.

Unless it is your first race, you must wear club colours to take part (tri tops or suits, vests or t-shirts are all valid). Finally, please note that runners are not allowed to wear headphones while competing in the race, as runners need to be able to hear marshals’ instructions and other competitors and vehicles approaching from behind. Anyone who fails to comply with race rules risks being disqualified.

Route
Clockwise – 3.5laps.

**as the Handicap is new we will be working your start times out from your Balke test result – if you haven’t done the Balke test at track please post ‘IN’ and your PB 5km time**

There will not be any hydration / nutrition on the route so if you want a drink you can leave it by the start / finish and have some when you loop past. We will however be heading to the BSC for a drink after the race!

To do:
Post ‘IN’ now if you are ‘IN’
Turn up at BSC on Thursday at 7 ish to warm up in appropriate clothing, head touch, £2 and money for a shandy
See you then!
