Frequently Asked Questions:

What is a Scratch race?

Where the event is marked in the calendar as “Scratch”, everyone in the group starts at the same time.

What is a Handicap race?

Where an event is marked as “Handicap”, athletes in a group start at different times to each other. The handicaps are worked out via each athletes previous times and will be 30 secs, 1min, 1min 30secs or 2 minutes.  The aim is for athletes to finish closer together and not strung out along the course.  An athlete’s handicap has no effect on their final time.  Handicaps will updated on the LAWA website prior to each Handicap event.
