24.Jan.12 17,000 runners have claimed their runbritain handicap
runbritain recently announced that, after 16 months, there are now more than 17,000 runners who have signed up to find out what their handicap score is in running.
The system is designed to allow runners (who are experienced enough to have completed a few races/events) to compare results across all distances and terrains.
Runners can access the site for free and see an array of information including their handicap score, ranking on the national ladder, personal progress graph, direct comparisons with other runners with a 'head-to-head' function and much, much more.
Handicap scores are updated automatically after each run and runners are given target times to bring their score down to the next level. These also provide a realistic goal for other distances that runners may not have done before or may not have done for a while.
If you've not already registered, you can do so now at www.runbritain.com.
