125th CLUTTON CUP HANDICAP

     The Clutton Cup is the final cross country handicap of the season.  It is started 'off the mark', that is to
   say,  the runners are given a handicap allowance dependant  upon their ability, with the slowest runner
  going off first, and the remainder following at 10 second, or greater intervals.                                                     
    The fastest  runner, the 'scratch man' goes off last.          If everyone runs to the form predicted by the   
  handicapper, Angus Cater, then they should all finish together.                                                                         
                                                                         
    The winner receives the  Clutton Cup, which is presented at the annual prizegiving, and held by the       
  recipient for one year.  Medals are awarded to the second and third.                                                                      
  Medals are awarded on the day to the three fastest men and three fastest women.
