And the winner is...Simon Kirkley 250517

We are pleased to announce the winner of this week's #clickyourclock competition as  Simon Kirkley (handicap 11.8).

Throughout 2017 we are rewarding runners who have improved their handicap score  with a Polar heart rate monitor.

The competition runs during the spring and summer months. Each week a random draw is made from all runners on the #clickyourclock leaderboard whose scores have improved by any amount in the preceding seven days and the prize is a Polar FT1 heart rate monitor.

This week, there were 886 clocks clicked and, out of those, 499 showed an improvement and went into the draw.

Simon Kirkley from Tyne Bridge has been randomly picked this week and will soon be receiving his prize. The handicap scoring system rewards regular racing as well as improved performances. Simon is a regular Tyneside competitor and achieved a course best time of 22:50 at the Gateshead parkrun last weekend when finishing 44th overall. This saw an improvement of 0.226 for the week.  Well done Simon Kirkley!

Don't forget there are many racing days available this week as evening events are still gathering pace, so claim your handicap now and be ready to #clickyourclock after your race this week!

Good luck!
