SKSC Race Series

The SKSC Race Series is an event that takes place at 19:00 on the first Tuesday of each month (between May and September) over a 5KM route. The purpose of the event is to help the members of the club gauge there improvement against themselves and each other.

Introduction

The purpose of the Handicap Run is to provide you with a chance to measure your current form by comparing your time over the same course with that of previous months. It is also a competition in which members of all abilities can compete equally with each other.

You don't have to be super fit or super fast to take part. The aim is to provide you with a measure of your current form, whether your fit or unfit.
