Sunday 23rd December – 30th Ken Dixon Christmas Handicap

Sunday 23rd December – 30th Ken Dixon Christmas Handicap

Report by the Hon. Handicapper..

A cold, wet day but thankfully no wind to speak of for the traditional Christmas handicap first run in 1989, see the race report here.  The Christmas handicap was  devised by yes you guessed it,  former member Mr Dixon.  Myself and Phil Robinson ran that day and neither have ever won in the 30 years since, a second for Phil in 1990 the best placing.  However  Antonio became the third person to take a second win, (1st in 2005), after Phil Dean & Kath Robertshaw, a brilliant effort, just over 7 minutes quicker than last year.

Bob Payne had no trouble holding onto his lead in the Eric Smith Handicap trophy, finishing ahead of Tom Hannah and Andy Webster just pipping David Cattanach for 3rd by 0.5 points,  see the full table here.

A big thanks to Kath Robertshaw and Richard Hamer for standing in the cold and wet recording and Jack Robertshaw marshalling at Swinsty Hall.

It all starts afresh on January 12th at the John Cowan Harewood Handicap, why not give it a go next year. 🙂

  1. I think you forgot to take off that I actually started after John Dade due to be stupidity of missing my start time. My Strava time was 39:28 🙂

    Anyway thanks for organising a brilliant series alway good friendly fun.

  2. Sorted now Andy, well done on 3rd overall in the Eric Smith trophy after the adjustment, i realised later last night I’d forgotten about your tardiness 🙂

  3. Congratulations to Bob P. for winning the Eric Smith Championship Trophy , an extraordinary achievement by Bob , and it was well deserved too . Phil R. did a super Ken Dixon Race finishing in a brilliant 45.03 . Andrew R. was the fastest on the day finishing in a very fast 33.26 . Also my friend Donald B. did a great 10k finishing in 49.20 . Well done everyone.
