  • Handicaps

    runbritain's revolutionary handicap scoring system is designed to give runners of all abilities the ability to benchmark their progress and compare their results across a range of distances and terrains.

    We include road, multi-terrain, track, cross country and trail races so now nearly all events that are licensed by UKA/runbritain can contribute to your handicap. The algorithm we use allows a direct comparison of the current form of different runners to be made. It does not matter if the races if you do were in tough, moderate or fast conditions as the algorithm asesseses the difficulty of the course on the day so that you have as good a chance of improving your handicap on a hilly course on a tough day to a flat course on a calm day.

  • The scoring system, which has been developed in conjunction with the team behind the Power of 10 website, rewards regular racing and factors in a degree of difficulty for slower courses. The score is derived from all your race results in UKA licensed road, multi-terrain, track & cross country races from 2010 although you only need to have done one race since 2010 to claim a handicap.
