Tadcaster Harriers Handicap Championship is run over the season from October to September. The handicapping is calculated by the handicapper (at present Mike Smith) and an adjustment is made to the finishing times to reflect the runner’s form, so any runner in the race can win irrespective of ability and gender.
The races are over a variety of distances and courses starting on 1st October each year. Under normal curcumstances, the committee would organise 9 races for club members to compete against each other, however for 2020/2021 the committee will use some virtual events to be used for the handicap championship. Points are awarded on a count back system with the winner scoring 100 points, second 99 points etc. From those 9 races, the best 7 scores will be added up. The runner with the highest score will be crowned Handicap Champion and presented with a trophy at the annual dinner in November.
