The Colin Simpson Memorial Handicap

Our traditional annual road handicap, “The Colin Simpson Memorial Handicap” will be held on the 1st February 2015

Start Time: 11.00am

This will, as in the previous few years, be within the Centurion Grand Prix 5 Mile Series, held in Kingshurst, North Solihull on Sunday, 1st February 2015. Race HQ is at the John Henry Catholic College, Chelmsley Road, North Solihull B37 5GA


Members who already have entered the GP Series only have to pay MMAC £3.00 for the handicap but they will have to pay the full £8.00 for entry to the Open race. We will then refund the £5.00. Please inform me beforehand so that I can arrange the refund. Email mmac.sec@blueyonder.co.uk

Entries are available online only from the 18th September 2014 at http://bmaf.org.uk
Click on “Member Login”. This takes you to the Athletes Registration System Home Page. Click on “Login/logout” and go to “Competition Entry”
Please make sure you fill in your estimated finishing time for the 5 miles.

Closing date for MMAC entries is strictly the 23rd January 2015.

There are no MMAC entries taken on the day because of the handicap calculations.

If you have not used the system before and require your login details then please contact mmac.sec@blueyonder.co.uk Your details will be emailed to you.

In previous years we have had members running who have not registered for the handicap. Let us make this a good fun; enjoyable and sociable event. Please support us in 2015.

  1. Well done to all, and excellent weather. Not sure what the answer is to encouraging people to enter the handicap, but at least we had a presence at the race. Do we have one of those large sail banners for the club? A 1-2 of those at the races would be good. Also wonder if we could use the Run Britain site more for handicaps, as your last 5m will be on the site, plus a handicap.

    • Every year we have members who do the Centurion GP race but don’t bother to register for our handicap. It’s such a shame because potentially we have many more who could enter. Fifteen runners is not a fair reflection.

      Any thoughts anyone how we can improve this in the future?
