Novice Cup 6th April 2019

Overcast and firm footing conditions prevailed for those that contested the Marlborough Harrier Club’s Novice Cup Handicapped Cross Country event at Taylor Dam on Saturday afternoon. However, during the race, it turned cold and damp but that is Cross Country running/ walking. The handicap system works so as to give every competitor, no matter what their ability, an even chance of winning their grade. In theory everyone in their respective grade should cross the finish line together. The handicappers did a good job with most competitors coming in within a short time. We had grades represented from under 12 and under to veterans.
The next race at Taylor Dam is for the Burton Cup which is one of the club’s oldest trophies April 27th.
