Eg **if you are 10 minutes faster than the slowest runner, start 10 minutes after them**. That’s their handicap. Runners who have not run the handicap in the last 12 months run for a while. We use this time to calculate your handicap for the next participation.

- PAR TIME = Pacesetter’s Time ÷ Pacesetter’s Handicap.
- Racer’s Handicap = Racer’s Time ÷ PAR TIME.
- Time required for a given handicap = desired handicap x PAR TIME .

A typical/average value would be **1.0**, indicating conditions that were neither particularly helpful nor hindering for runners; 1.0 is also usually given when there were too few with Runbritain handicaps to make an accurate measurement.

The Club 5k Handicap is **a monthly competition based on members’ performance at a parkrun**. Each person is assigned a handicap based on past performance at the parkrun of their choice. It’s a free competition, open to all members and you can enter at any time throughout the year.

The term “disabled” **originally comes from a game called “Hand in Cap” which is a game of chance in which each person has an equal chance of winning in each subsequent game you play. Later it was applied to horse racing. You would hinder a fast horse by hanging stones on it to slow it down.**

Racehorses carry additional weights **to meet their minimum weight allocation for a given race**. If a jockey and his tack weigh less than the allotted weight, weights are added to the horse to meet the required amount to be carried during the race.

Divide each participant’s “elapsed time” in turn by the number of laps YOU have completed. Multiply each elapsed time by 1000 (one thousand). Divide each of these numbers by the handicap to get the “corrected time”.

**The handicap number assigned to a yacht class is based on the speed of the yacht compared to a theoretical yacht with a rating of 0**. A yacht’s handicap or rating is the number of seconds per mile traveled that the yacht in question should be behind the theoretical yacht.

The vSSS gives a score for how people did that day compared to the rest of the field in that race. The lower (more negative) this is, the better the performance. The vSSS is **the difference between the race’s total SSS score and what your performance alone calculated as SSS** (what we call MySSS).

How do I get a Power of 10 profile? Profiles are typically automatically created for athletes who have achieved an entry norm for the rankings. If you don’t already have a profile, you can create one by **registering with Power of 10 and then linking the results to your profile** (see below).

runbritainrankings.com is **an initiative of UKA’s road running division – runbritain.com**. The site is for street runners of all levels. At the heart of the site is the handicap score awarded to every runner who has completed at least one race since early 2010.

The finale of the legendary main race is held on grass over 120 m (390 ft) with a slight incline. **Competitors will be handicapped according to their form, with each competitor being “marked” between 0m and 10m or more to theoretically reach the finish line at the same time**.

A handicapped race is **a race in which the abilities of all participants are balanced so that each competitor, regardless of speed, has an equal chance of being the winner**.

A mental or physical disadvantage, such as **blindness or a missing leg**, is a handicap: something that hinders you in some way. Handicaps can also be artificially imposed to even out the odds at sporting events.

The most common handicap results are found in soccer, hockey, and basketball games. Handicap 1 means **a bet on a first team (the host team)**. It can be either positive or negative.

In other words, **the farther a horse runs, the greater the braking effect of the weight carried**. Horses usually carry different weights to compensate for differences in performance. A better horse may need to carry more weight to give its weaker opponents a chance to assert themselves.

Something curious among the list of big horses that weighed was Secretariat’s career; Big Red never carried more than **126 pounds**.
