Virtual Winter Handicap Oct 30th/31st/Nov 1st.

Notional start times based on the last of the summer Tuesday evening list. Hopefully people can do this in twos and threes so that it feels a bit better than the solo efforts of April to June. Particularly important in the mud, rain, and cold, I think.

October 6th Handicap Results

Pretty wet underfoot after heavy rain all day but not so cold at 12C and no wind. Not quite as heavy conditions as in March but bad enough, particularly because most of the 14 participants had spent the previous few days running long and hard, some on the hills, some on the roads, some especially in the mock Johnson’s handicap last Friday. As expected Tony W, currently in excellent form, swept through the field. Only just behind after equally good efforts were David B – now a second year M60 – and a rejuvenated Anwen. Arwel and Peter also beat the handicapper’s expectations, and Tony B was disappointed at not outkicking Elen but I think that was being a bit hard on himself as he did close a minute on her which is pretty good these days.

Only read this last bit if you remember the 1980 Olympics and appreciate a strong imagination:

More interesting was the showdown between Menai, Bob, and Chris. Remembering that Bob is the distance man, he was expected to take the longer Johnson’s race on Friday but Chris grabbed the initiative there. A bit like Ovett v Coe in the 1500/800 showdown, the longer race therefore went to the wrong man. Bob, like Ovett, took the shorter one today decisively. In this scenario Menai, pushing them both but in last place, can play the younger athlete – the upcoming Steve Cram (though it doesn’t quite work since he was last in the 1500 not the 800).  Whatever, Bob surprised me at any rate.

OCTOBER 6th Handicap Start List

This is a fairly comprehensive revamp of the early season list taking account of times done in the Virtual handicap series and times in virtual races, including biased observations and rumours. Declarations of intent to run need to be made to David on facebook and if more than 30 we will have to split into two separate races – perhaps one group could go earlier using these differential gaps in the start times, but from 5pm.

Crest Virtual Handicap Final Round

Not many left to make it through to this last round of a tough series. Psychologically very hard to face that hill every week (I couldn’t do it), not to mention some risk on the descents through the woods.
