The 2018 Handicap Series has now finished.

Thank you to all runners and helper that have participated in what I hope was a successful Series.

This was my final Series as the organiser/handicapper, thanks to everyone for their help and patience over the years I've been doing these tasks, and good luck to my successors, Tim & Lynne Buckley, who I've no doubt what's so ever, will take the Series to the next level.

   Where is the Handicap Course?    Map of Course  

Handicap Car Park

The course is just under 5 miles long and runs on forest fire tracks around Chepstow Park Woods. The surface is 'hard-pack' gravel which can vary depending on forest operations within the wood.

The elevation change is roughly 180m.
