Burton Cup at Taylor Dam 5th May 2018

They are off.

Dry conditions greeted those contesting the Marlborough Harrier Club’s oldest trophy race, the Burton Cup Sealed Handicapped Cross Country at Taylor Dam on Saturday afternoon. All competitors started on go with their finishing times altered according to their sealed handicap. Made for some interesting running and results.
Unfortunately an accident on top of the Dam to one walker meant other walkers coming from behind stopped to assist thus no recorded time for them.
The handicap systems works so as to give every competitor, no matter what their ability, an even chance of winning their grade.
