5K Handicap Chase Run 2018

About the Event

This free members-only club event will be held on Sunday 18th November at 11:00AM at Old Bega Racecourse.

The principle behind handicapping is to aim for all runners to finish at about the same time. This is achieved by allowing the slower runners to begin before the faster ones. This is more enjoyable for slower runners who are not immediately left behind, and challenges the faster ones who will have someone to chase.

Handicapped start times will be set by the organising committee member and will be calculated using the two “best times” you have recorded during the current parkrun season.

The 5 kilometre course will be a two-loop route around part of the Bega parkrun course.

Trail Run Series – Event 1 Mandeni

Sapphire Coast Runners is delighted to present our first trail run series, launching in 2018!

We plan to conduct our Trail Run Series on a bi-annual basis, launching with our first event at Mandeni Family Fun Park on 29 April 2018.

It is intended that each event in the series will offer different distances, track options, and award categories.

Events in the trail run series will be open to all runners and walkers including members and non-members. Trail running experience is not necessary, as generous cut-off will allow runners and walkers of all abilities to participate.
