Summer 5 Mile Handicap. The last Thursday of every month 7pm At Savill Gardens, is the Runnymede Runners 5 mile Handicap. This is a free run, against the clock and refreshments are provided!

It’s also a great way to get to know members of the club and many of us retreat to the ‘The Barley Mow Englefield Green for a few drinks after the event. On your first handicap run you will be asked to give an estimated time for your 5 miles. Your time will determine the time you begin the handicap (as runners will start according to their ability but attempt to complete the course by 8:00p.m.) When you run your second race the minutes/seconds you have added or taken away will determine your start time of your next run. Prizes are awarded for most improved time (not including your estimated time) and in the August Handicap, fastest man and woman. This is a perfect opportunity to achieve your goals, whatever they may be; to enjoy a scenic 5 miles in the park, to improve your times month by month or to use the route as a tempo run or speedwork. Please join us for some or all of these marvellous, free events! Dates: 2018:
