Junior Summer and Fell Handicap Results

The Junior Summer Handicap race is an annual event, run in conjunction with the senior club Summer Handicap. The venue varies but the event was held at Silverwood Scout Camp, in 2014 and 2015. Junior runners have to predict their time, and run without watches. Under 11s (school years up to and including Year 5) run a course of approximately 1.1 miles; older juniors (Year 6 and above) run approximately 2.2 miles. The winners are those who finish closest to their predicted time.
