THE Shepparton Runners Club (SRC) will be hosting its November 5km handicap run on Sunday, November 6 at Princess Park oval in Shepparton from 8am.
SRC president, Nadine Edwards said, “As a handicapped race, everyone is given a different start time. This means that all the participants should cross the line within a small timeframe and you don’t have to be the fastest to win. The handicap is also a good way for new runners to come and make new connections. The SRC encourage all levels of runners to come along.
“There will be prizes on the day, which is open for all participants, as well as fruit and juice after the run.
“Entry is free for members, $10 for non members and all are welcome!”
Participants are encouraged to arrive 15 minutes early to allow time for their handicap to be set prior to the race beginning. First time participants are asked to estimate their time for 5km before the race.
Numbers permitting, a 2km kids dash will be run separately.
Participants are encouraged to register at www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/shepparton-runners-club-november-handicap-5km-tickets-28477548113?aff=efbevent prior to Saturday night, but entries will be accepted on the day.
