The Andrew Brooks Blackcap Handicap
An undulating downland course of 5 miles from Ditchling Beacon to Black Cap Trig point and back.
Our annual Blackcap Handicap is held to remember all that Andrew Brooks brought to our sport and our Club.
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 hours or just before 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 Brighton Phoenix member across the finish line.
Entry is FREE to Brighton Phoenix members and £5 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.
The Andrew Brooks Blackcap Handicap 2023 will be held on Tuesday 13th June 2023
First runner starts at about 19:00hrs.
Please enter in advance if possible to assist the handicapper by Whatsapp message of your details to Liz at 07483 877 917
Please provide your name and recent or estimated flat 10k race time, or 5k parkrun time.
