ERR XC Handicap Competition 2021/22 Scores
Here are the scores after round 2. Remember that your best 4 scores will count so if you’ve missed a round (as many already have) then you still have a chance. There are some explanatory notes below the table, for those who are interested.
Points are awarded to show the person who has improved the most in percentage terms against their ‘base’ pace, so 50 are awarded to the most improved, then down from there to the least improved person on the day.
Base pace is calculated via a weighted average of a runner’s pace achieved in the 2019/20 season, with the weights reflecting the relative difficulty of the courses involved. If you didn’t run in 2019/20 then an arbitrary base figure is assigned, but the usual disclaimer applies in that you are unlikely to win in these circumstances, as it’s likely to mean you were given a false base figure. As ever, think of it as setting a mark for next year.
