Staying motivated through 2022 with the handicap scoring system

The runbritain hanidcap scoring system was launched just over eleven years ago and each year there has been an average of almost 10,000 signing up as the word and motivation spreads.

Here are 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 a Club Running competition. This could easily be organised to reward runners who have reduced their handicap score by the biggest margin and runs from designated periods each year.
  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 find out where your times put you in the official UK road rankings as well as in your age group and postcode.

All the information you need is on the runbritain rankings site. Sign up today and keep your motivation levels high throughout 2022!
