Senior Point to Point "Haigh Cup" race.
This is the third and final race in the 'Winter Championship',after the Tinker Cup and Club 6. All of these races are handicapped, but the Championship is based on an aggregate best-time basis.
This race will now follow the same course for three years (starting April 2023), before changing to a new route.
Please add your name on the list at the club for your handicap needed prior to day of registration and also try to give some meaningful information of current form, if no race form then perhaps someone you think is of similar ability who has some race form. The course is about 5 miles to help you estimate.
Alternatively, you can email me on firstname.lastname@example.org

As the name implies, the Point to Point race involves visiting points using your own route choice, with runners setting off at intervals in reverse order for a theoretical mass finish.
The race is restricted to roads and public footpaths, although what constitutes a public footpath is subject to interpretation; paths such as that passing through Cliffe Wood behind Neiley is not on any map, but is definitely in general use!
See map for details.
To register, please enter via the website or put your name down on the entry sheet at Neiley Pavilion. Please give some indication of your current form when entering so that you can be allocated a handicap: Most recent race time which best indicates their form stating and which race that was.
The closing date for registration is Friday 22nd April.
