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?

The handicap is based on recent race times and, in theory, gives everyone an equal chance.

A handicap race gives even the slowest members of the club a chance to beat faster runners - and even to win a race.

Three Hills Race (sealed handicap)

Down Hill Mile (Time Trial)

Constable Handicap (staggered start handicap)

EYXC League

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 Judy Allison/Wendy Foster for a Race Number which you will retain for each of the races.


East Hull Harriers Summer League and

East Hull Harriers organise a series of 8 evening races as the East Hull H.A.C. Summer League. Dates for these races are on our club web site.


Press Coverage

Cathy Wood is the club’s Press Officer, and writes the reports for the Brid Free Press.

Cathy usually submits her report on a Sunday night and if you are racing somewhere outside the local area she will not necessarily be aware of that.

So let her know otherwise your result may get missed out.

Entering 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.
