After months of rain the sunny forecast brought out hoards of walkers to the Harewood estate, making parking a little difficult. A good turn out for the first handicap of the year saw Carol had a fantastic run to win her second handicap in a row, I think I need to be a bit harder next time! Tom Pomfrett passed nearly everyone in finishing second a minute clear of Phil in third. Without a photo finish it proved to be impossible separate Hugh and Rogan who recorded the fastest time of the day.
Thanks to Jack & Justina for setting everyone off as I arrived a little late to get back in time from ‘flouring‘ the route. The next handicap is the Eccup Alwoodley Lane (6 miles) on Sat. 27th Feb.
For those of you how like your race stats. I’ve updated the Handicap Times spreadsheet this means that Tom & Phil are now just 9 short of 200 handicaps and this was Carol’s 100th. I’ve added a couple of columns to the ‘Runners’ tab for the average & variation of finish position as a percentage. Handicap Times spreadsheet.
