Chepstow Park Woods Handicap
How does the handicap work?
The runner with the slowest handicap time will set off first followed by the next slowest and so on. The time at which an individual sets off will be the difference between their handicap time (with the addition of penalties where applicable), and that of the slowest runner. The person who completes the course first is the race winner, and will win a prize immediately after the race.
