one Handicap race every month from April to September. Points are
awarded to the first 35 finishers starting with 35 for the first, 34 for
the second down to 1 for the 35th. New Handicapper Phil
Young has inherited Willie Mykura's secret formula for working out handicaps
(which takes into account recent form) and he has changed it to make it
even more fool proof (ie proof from excuses and tactics from runners who
think they can beat the system!).
As well as a good race, there is the social conviviality of a shared meal afterwards.
