Club Races and Handicap Races
The club holds several races during the year which are just for our own
members. Some of these are “Staggered Handicap” races and others
are straight races with what is called a “Sealed Handicap”.
What is a Handicap Race?
A handicap race gives even the slowest members of the club a chance
to beat faster runners - and even to win a race. The handicap is based
on recent race times and, in theory, gives everyone an equal chance.

John Edwards and Tom Fynn are the club’s Press Officers, and write the
reports for the Brid Free Press.
They usually submit their report on a Sunday night, so if you are racing
somewhere outside the local area please let somebody know.
Otherwise your result may get missed out.
Bridlington RR was a founder member of the East Yorkshire Cross
Country League – this is a series of 5 Cross Country races at villages
around East Yorkshire + 1 race near Scarborough. Entry is free –
when the season starts at the beginning of October just ask Bob
Eyre/Wendy Foster for a Race Number which you will retain for
each of the races.
When you enter a race you are issued with a Race Number by the
Race Organiser. But, the Race Number is not your entry - it is just a
way of identifying one runner from another.
If you enter a race and later find you cannot do it - please do not
hand your number to somebody else.
You are not giving them your entry - you are simply giving them
your means of identity.
This is against UK Athletic Rules and is also a safety issue.
Some races do allow entries to be transferred - but it has to be
done officially by contacting the Race Organiser.
