The handicap is based on 40 minutes - so if you think it will take you 30 minutes you will have a handicap of 10 minutes and start at 8:10pm, 20 miniute 5k will have a handicap of 20 minutes 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.
