Free adidas mi-coach for 20,000th handicap claiment!

Have you claimed your runbritain handicap score yet?

We have a free adidas mi-coach (worth £125) for the 20,000th runner to claim their free runbritain handicap score - and it's a fast-approaching figure!

The handicap scoring scheme, which has been in operation since September 2010, gives every runner in the 4,000 UKA-licensed British road races each year - including parkruns - a personal handicap score ranging from 0.0 to 36.0. Once you have claimed, the score automatically updates each time you race and rewards regular racing as well as automatically factoring in a degree of difficulty on races that are multi-terrain, hilly or windy.

So, the good news is that you can improve your handicap score even if you don’t break your PB. All racing distances are covered. The free runner biog page also lists your racing history, your progress graphs, your national ranking and ladder position, as well as your best racing distance and the possibility of comparing your results head to head with any other runner.

Mo Farah is one of only a handful of athletes with a negative score (below 0.0). Katie Price has a 34.8 handicap from her 2:34:20 run at the Brighton Half Marathon.
