The first Harwich 5k series was held in 1992 and although the course has had a few minor changes since then the format remains the same. The handicap is based on 40 miniutes - so if you think it will take you 30 miniutes you will have a handicap of 10 miniutes and start at 8:10pm, 20 miniute 5k will have a handicap of 20 miniutes and start at 8:20 and so on. The idea being that everyone should finish close together. Handicaps are adjusted as you get quicker and by the end of the series many will have improved their 5k PB. Course map below.
