2023 Senior Christmas Handicap Race Report

Congratulations to Steve Winford who won the 2023 Christmas Handicap covering the course in a time 54:45 (43:45). Sarah Cumber finished 2nd  just behind in 56:25 (39.55) holding off Paul Hopkinson in 3rd  57:52 (48:52). 14 Harriers completed the course with 5 first timers taking part and it was good to see a healthy prize table holding this quirky tradition together. 190 different athletes have competed in this event since records began in 1985 – let’s get that number up to 200 next year! Just as important, the race was followed by a very well attended social at the 3 pigeons which is becoming as traditional as the race itself!

The full results from the race as well as the updated spreadsheet that shows all results since 1985 are on the top right hand side of this page of the website. See how you compare with other runners from the past!
