This is our 5 mile mid-summer cross country handicap. 

     The runners are given a handicap allowance dependant upon their ability, with the slowest runner 
going off first, and the remainder following at 10 second or greater intervals.  
    The fastest  runner, the 'scratch man' goes off last.                                                                                                   
 The winner receives the Coad Cup, which is held by the recipient for one year.  
 Medals are awarded to the second and third,  and also to the three fastest men and      
 three fastest women.
