September 2007 Handicap Time Trial

There was a good turnout for September’s handicap four mile time trial. We used the summer route from QE via Pamphill Church to Cowgrove and then back to QE via The Cuthbury. Handicaps are worked out based on each runner’s previous times over the route, if you haven’t run the route before we guesstimate what your handicap should be. Whoever crosses the line first is awarded the Time Trial Trophy which they return when they defend it the following month. Only runner’s who have a previous recorded time can win the trophy.

The handicapping system ensures that the trophy is won by whoever has seen the greatest improvement in form. Well done to Teresa Ashton who wins the trophy this month as she managed to improve her time by almost 3 minutes – a terrific performance especially considering Teresa improved by almost 2 minutes the previous month. September’s other big improvers were Claire Newby who improved by almost 2 minutes and Tim Box and Ian Kennedy who both improved by around a minute.


On the Summer Time Trial route at Cowgrove

In September almost half the field were recording their first time trial time, and there was some strong performances amongst them. Well done to Jeff Hinsley, Mark Jordan-Gill, Wendy Kennedy, Stuart Piddock, Nicki Roe, Wendy Trueman and Michelle Whitehurst. Thanks very much to Nick Solomon who is out injured at present but has been timekeeper for the last two time-trials.
