Handicap score upgrades to include age group and postcode

The runbritain rankings system

Have you got a handicap score ? If not, then WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN FOR THE LAST THREE YEARS?!

The handicap scoring system was launched in September 2010. It gives runners a handicap score of between MINUS 6 (Mo Farah) and 36, a personal personal progress graph with updates every time they race and lots more.

Improvements are constantly being made to the system and now we have upgraded it again to include age group rankings (by popular demand) and, just to keep you on your toes, postcode rankings! This means that you can see where you stand (or run!) in your area. So, for example, if you live in Reading, you can see how you compare to all other runners with an RG1 postcode. You will find the updates on your profile page on the right hand side just underneath your photograph.

If your postcode ranking is missing it may be because we don't know it yet. All you need to do is click on 'What are these?' and you will be instructed on how to tell us where you live.

Have fun with it and good luck!
