Handicap League (2018 info. to follow)
This fun, competitive event is open to all Skipton Athletics Club members and is aimed at getting everyone involved.
There will be 12 races throughout 2017; four quarterly off-road races around Gargrave and eight monthly road races around Skipton. Both routes are approx 10k.
There is a staggered start according to each individual’s estimated/known 10k time, with the aim that all runners should finish close together – making for an exciting finish! Timings are adjusted accordingly to ensure fair play at all times.
Points are awarded for placings (30 for the first finisher then 29 for second etc). Your best eight placings count towards the final league placings when trophies/prizes are awarded for improvement as well as fastest times so it’s not just for the speediest runners!
