FACC Handicap Race #5 – Wind, rain, sun (no hail)
Handicap race #5 of the year was held on Sunday 5 July. Average weather, including the proverbial 4 seasons in one 5km stretch, plus school holidays kept numbers down, but the 4 competitors busted a gut to make the following times:
1st – 61:21, TK1 – Annette Scott (1 sec off PB)
2nd – 55:24, SS1 – Peter Pelns
3rd – 52:08, K1 – Leigh Newberry
4th – 56:41, K1 – Chris de Luis
Thanks to those who participated, hope you enjoyed the sprint.
Handicap races are scheduled throughout the year, are raced over 10kms, usually on a Sun morning, and are open to all members and guests. Since it’s a handicap it matters not how good you are against others, but how good you are against yourself. Handicap races cost nothing and are a great way of improving on your times without the formalities of a race. There just that extra incentive when someone is chasing you up to the line…
