We are pleased to announce that the 2019 #clickyourclock competition will start this week, the London Marathon week, with the first prize draw on Wednesday 1st May.

#clickyourclock is our weekly competition, that runs from late spring to early autumn, and has been designed to promote the runbritain handicap scoring system which, itself, has been designed to support the runner's transition into racing and continuous progression towards individual running targets and goals.

The #clickyourclock competition won the Innovation prize at the European Athletics Golden Tracks awards ceremony in 2016.

The handicap scoring system tracks every runner of every level that participates in runbritain licensed events and parkruns. The entry level score is set at 36.0 with the lowest handicap score currently belonging to  Mo Farah who is on MINUS 7.6. The top woman is Laura Muir with a running handicap score of MINUS 2.9 (-2.9). The system encourages personal progression but also allows runners to compare themselves against others within the overall population, gender, age group and postcode and places each runner on the National Ladder.

At 12 noon each Wednesday, from the first week and for the next 25 weeks after this,  a random draw will be made from all those runners on the #clickyourclock leaderboard whose scores have improved by any amount in the preceding seven days and the prize is a Polar OH1 — Optical Heart Rate Sensor.The racing week starts each Wednesday so, from Wednesday 25th April, your racing counts for more!
