Wednesday Night Running Club Race Series


The Annual Wednesday Night Running Club Handicapped 5km Race Series will be held on:


Wednesday 27th September - 6pm


Wednesday 18th October - 6pm 


Wednesday 15th November - 6pm


These races are a fantastic opportunity for runners of ALL ABILITIES to improve their personal best 5km time. Due to handicapped times most runners finish around the same time so you will be sprint finishing against people you never usually would. The winner of the series is not the first finisher, it is the runner that improves their 5km time the most over the series. 


All three races will begin and end in Dragon Bay on Safehaven Drive between West Bay Road and Esterley Tibbets Highway. The 5km route will have a staggered start based on runners preallocated start time. Handicaps will be based on times from previous year's races, times in other island races this year or performance in club runs. Handicap times will be readjusted after each race in the series. Points will be allocated based on runners performance with their handicap.


There will be awards for the top 3 improved runners across the series. The overall winner receiving the coveted WNRC Race Series Trophy. There will also be awards for the fastest male and female runners across the series. Awards will be presented at the WNRC Race Series dinner social (date TBC). 


This event is open to all runners interested in participating. Runners not known to the club are asked to provide projected 5km race times prior to the race to allocate handicaps. To be in contention for the trophies runners must have run with WNRC at least once prior to the race series and make themselves known to a committee member (Tony or Nicola). Runners who have not run with WNRC before are welcome to participate in the series but will not be able to win the series. 


Wednesday Night Running Club meets every Wednesday at 6pm outside World Gym (except for the 3 Wednesdays of the race series). The club is open to all levels of runners and is completely free. Come along any Wednesday and ask for Tony, Carole, Nicola or Sam.

Course records have been set in the previous two races but could still be broken in this final race. Those who have participated in either of the previous races will be re-handicapped to make for a close finish. Even if you didn't make race 1 or 2 you are still welcome to come and join us for this 5km run.
