Barrow Boxing Day Handicap 2019

Official online event entry for Barrow Boxing Day Handicap 2019, Thursday, 26 December 2019

The 37th running of this light-hearted 6 mile handicap race to help you clear away the effects of Xmas excess. The course is along the gently undulating country roads around Barrow upon Soar.

Runners estimate their time when they enter and start at minute intervals, with the slowest first, so that in theory everyone finishes at the same time!

Fancy dress encouraged, but you do have to be able to run in it and there is a noon cut off for the race finish. No medals, but you get a memento and a mince pie.

Changes for 2019 race
Runners and supporters will not have access to the Humphrey Perkins School building and toilets like previous years.

There will instead be portable toilets, outdoor refreshments, and a sheltered baggage drop by the start / finish area.

The race will start / finish in front of the Humphrey Perkins School as usual.
