Phoenix Athletics and Triathlon club

Blackcap 5M Handicap


Thursday 15th June 2017

First runner starts 19:00hrs

An undulating downland course of 5 miles approx from Ditchling Beacon to Black Cap Trig point and back.
This event is aimed at all standards and abilities and should be treated as a Fun Run.

Runners will be set off at handicapped intervals from 19:00 based on their estimated time and the estimated time of the handicapper (whose decision is final!). The idea is for all runners to race to the finish line together. There will be club awards for the first paid-up Phoenix member across the line and fastest Phoenix male and Phoenix female overall.

Entry is FREE to Phoenix members and £1 for guests.

Entry is restricted to athletes aged 16 and over although 14 and 15 year olds can race with the permission of their parents / guardian and coach.

Please enter in advance if possible to assist the handicapper by emailing your details to Liz at

Please Provide your name and recent or estimated flat 10K race time, or 5K time if you can’t estimate your 10K time.

Entries will be taken on the night up to 18:30 when start times will also be announced.

Please note that the car park at Ditchling Beacon is free to National Trust members but pay and display otherwise.
