Handicap Race

The Joyce Smith Memorial Rose Bowl & John Hearn Memorial Shield

The Handicap races are held on the First Monday of every month and will start as close to 7pm as possible.

The distance will be 4.9 miles and the Summer handicap route will be used for every race until further notice.

Given the latest update from England Athletics, in conjunction with the government roadmap, we can now hold this event for up to 30 runners.

Registration for the Handicaps is via the Wesham Website booking system and must be done no later than 6.00pm on the Sunday (night before the race).

PLEASE NOTE – If you book a place and then are unable to attend, please be courteous to your fellow club mates and CANCEL your place ASAP, as this will free up the place for someone else. This is so important given the limited numbers that we can have. 

The Handicap starts at the Windmill on the top of Dowbridge, Kirkham.

The route is out into the countryside around Treales.
All Handicap races are suitably marshalled.
The last race of the Handicap Series is the Trophy Race.

Anyone wishing to qualify for the end of year Handicap Champions Race will need to have completed at least 4 races.

2 in the period September to February and 2 in the period March to August.

These rules comply with the current Government & EA guidance and are subject to change as and when necessary.
