Gosunder Handicap Race Report 2017



On a glorious day for barbecuing, around 55 runners plus assorted friends, family, marshals and officials popped over to Mad Bess Woods for the 2017 Gosunder handicap race.

In the junior race the first team home were a pairing more used to jumping and hurdling than distance running- Tariq Arieff and Rhys Feauviour.

Meanwhile over in the senior race the first finisher was Matt Smith whose daughter Mia was running in the relay, however as the rules of the Gosunder dictate that the trophy is won by the first HAC member home, that honour passed to 2nd place finisher and crowd favourite Alan Wells (I’m glad I didn’t give in to his pre race request for a better handicap).

Then it was back to the clubhouse for apres ski, BBQ and some great athletics on the TV. I think it’s safe to say that everyone had a great time as evidenced by the fact that we ran out of both food and beer.

Many, many thanks to everyone who helped make the day run so smoothly. A lot of people contributed in one way or another and it’s very much appreciated.
