HANDICAP

Thursday night saw the second Dunbar 5km Handicap race being ran in cold and windy conditions.

The race is held on the first Thursday of every month and forms part of the club’s Thursday evening interval training.

This month saw Anne narrowly beating Stuart, Ian, Frank and Lauren to claim the monthly trophy (other commitments meant that last months winner Clarissa was unable to defend her title) . This victory means that ten seconds will be taken off next month’s handicap time for Anne.

The interval training on Thursday evenings is proving to be popular, with most runners reporting noticeable improvements in their times. Afterwards the “athletes” retire to the bar for a few beers or coffee.

Anne’s recent success might be attributed to the fact that she doesn’t drink beer. A theory that is considered utter tosh by others.
