Caboolture Road Runners 8k Handicap Series 2007

"Whenever I think of the past, it brings back so many memories." Steve Wright 
So many memories indeed. Who could forget the cut and thrust of last years 8k series? The tension and tactics, the thrill of the chase? The hills, the sweat, chaffing, buggered knees, oxygen debt and total exhaustion? 
Well, it's on again and I bet you can't wait. This year the 8k series starts on 25 March 2007 at 8:00am from Iain and Chrissy's place at 280 Robinson Road Mt Mee. The course will be over several loops and involve a lot of off road so it promises some very exciting racing. We are still working out the calendar for the rest of the series, but Race 2 is at Delaneys Creek on 9 April and Race 3 on May 6 at a venue to be advised. We'll try to have all races as stand alone club events this year rather than in association with other organised fun runs. Wear your club colours and support your CRR team! Here is your opening handicap based on the last race you did in 2006 plus 2%. If you haven't raced for over a year you're a slacker and you'll get a new time when you finally show up.

Please note there has been a significant change to the calculation of handicaps this year. We no longer use the entrails of a chicken but rely on a flash new computer thingo which Eric and Gen helped us source at a really good rate. The rules are:-
  • No previous handicap. New Handicap = Race Time + 1%, eg 50 minutes would be 50 minutes 30 seconds.
  • Race time equals handicap. New Handicap = Old Handicap, eg no change.
  • Race time faster than handicap. New Handicap = Old Handicap less (80% of the difference between Race Time and Old Handicap), eg if your Old Handicap is 50 minutes and you run 48 minutes your New Handicap is 48 minutes and 24 seconds.
  • Race time slower than handicap. New Handicap = Old Handicap plus (10% of difference (to a maximum of 15 seconds) between Race Time and Old Handicap), eg if your Old Handicap is 50 minutes and you run 52 minutes your New Handicap is 50 minutes 12 seconds. Even if you ran 55 minutes your New Handicap would only move out by the maximum 15 seconds.
The point score is 1st place 50 points, 2nd 46 points, 3rd 43 points, 4th 41 points, 5th 40 points reducing by 1 point for each subsequent position. No double points events this year and your best 4 races count to decide the overall winner. Special accolades for those who attend every event.
And don't forget the series opener is part of the Mt Mee Tri which has its first event on Saturday 24 March, again from Iain's. First of the three events is a 23k loop described as "challenging" and rated OMG!!! 5:30am start. Next is the 8k event on Sunday morning and the final leg is around 11ks or so in the arvo. These are all "no watch" events and all you need to do to enter is record your estimated total finishing time before the start, for the total marathon distance. Winner gets more accolades, and plenty of them.
