Topic: Handicapper’s update for 2019

Welcome to the 2019 VCCL season - already underway with 2 excellent events at Jells Park. Things you need to know from the handicapper. All VCCL Club events will be handicapped as per the Handicapping guidelines. We may, however, use some discretion with the AV and Parkrun events, so don’t be surprised if you get extra handicap for these events. As handicapper, I would also add that the secret to winning a race is to run as often as possible. If you do this, your handicap will be just right when you find your best form. This year’s winners, Tiger and Adina, ran 15 and 14 races respectively last year without a win but had a good mark when they returned in super form in 2019. Well done to 2 great members of the VCCL. All the best to runners this Saturday at your chosen parkrun event and Sunday 26 May in the first 2019 VCCL staggered start - the Rendina family event. Fraser
