YPH Club Championship

As discussed at the AGM, we wish to encourage runners of all abilities by introducing an inclusive Club Championship based on a handicap system. Massive thanks to Phil & his team of enigma code breakers for finding the time and having the mathematical skill to get us this far.

A trial run will be held over the 2020 Summer League 10k series that starts in April. There will be two competitions:

1) The YPH Handicap: the person who beats their handicap by the most (as a percentage) wins the race.

2) The Consistent Harrier: the person who is closest to their handicap (as a percentage) wins the race.

At the end of the season the Harrier with the best 5 placings from the 6 races wins these competitions. You do not have to complete 5 races to take part. Handicaps set from last year's summer league average time (adjusted for course difficulty) are shown below.

We know that the number of members within the club has increased significantly since the last race league series. We would love our new members to take part so if your name doesn't appear on the list below just let us know and we will add you in with an estimated handicap.

Any member who feels last year is not a good guide for this season can propose an alternative time for consideration to the handicapping team. If these estimates turn out to be very wrong we can go back and correct! Handicaps will be adjusted after each race for actual performance and course difficulty by the handicapping team. Full details of these adjustments will be available from the team (Phil Raddall, Kevan Ford and Jon Smithey).
