The Clutton Cup is usually the final cross country handicap of the season but its timing is disrupted this year due to the schedule backlog following lockdown.
It adopts a handicap format with handicaps awarded by the Club handicapper.
Number pick from 2pm at the clubhouse with the race commencing at 3pm.
HOW DOES A Handicap WORK? Rather than start everyone at the same time, a Handicap race sees each runner awarded an individual start time by the Handicapper based on their recent race performances. The runner with the most generous Handicap will set off first, with each subsequent runner starting at their allotted time. If the Handicapper has done their job, all runners should in theory end up finishing the race at roughly the same time. To ensure this is the case members must have run a minimum number of club events in order to be awarded a Handicap (and failing this they will compete as a guest). The first runner across the finishing line wins the Handicap.
Prizes awarded to the first finisher in the Handicap, the first three finishers, the three fastest men and the three fastest women.
This handsome trophy was presented in 1881, the year of the club’s foundation, by Mr J H Clutton, the club’s first true President.
