MONTHLY HANDICAP


The Monthly Handicap has been run on a semi-rural course of exactly 3.72 miles in Thornton Cleveleys since 1985. Hundreds of runners have taken part and there is an impressive list of course records reproduced below (Blackpool & Fylde or North Fylde prior to 01.09.2006). From April to October the race starts at 7.15 p.m. (6.15 p.m. in October) on the first Wednesday of each month. From November to March it takes place on the first Sunday of the month at 10.00 a.m..

Several runners have completed the race over a hundred times (see below) and have been presented with a commemorative trophy. In June 2006 Margaret Brown became the first runner to complete two hundred races. Current Handicapper
