Some of the benefits of the runbritain handicap scoring system:

  1. It’s a unique handicap system for running. Just like golf you get a handicap from 0.0 – 36.0 giving runners of all abilities the chance to benchmark their progress and compare their results across a range of terrains and distances. The score automatically updates each time you race (once you have claimed) and rewards regular racing as well as automatically factoring in a degree of difficulty on races that are multi-terrain, hilly or windy.
  2. You can be a part of the European Athletics Innovation Award winning #clickyourclock competition. This competition rewards runners who reduce their handicap score. The competition runs from March - October each year. Last month, #clickyourclock was presented with the overall prize for innovation at the prestigious European Athletics Golden Tracks awards night,
  3. You can be part of the National Running Ladder and check out where your handicap puts you compared to every other runner in the UK, e.g. does your 5k time put you higher than your friend’s half marathon and marathon times?
  4. You can check out where your handicap puts you in your age group and postcode.
  5. You can find out where your times put you in the official UK road rankings 
  6. You can log your training mileage, watch your progress graph rise and check out head-to-heads with your training partners.
