|WEE Series League Table||
As well as the usual simple, winsplits and routegadget results, the 2023 WEE series will have two styles of handicap results published.
The first style revives the handicap system used in the past for the WEEs – a handicap which aims to put competitors on a level playing field for age and gender.
The second style is an innovative handicap system designed by Alan Gartside which, additionally, accounts for competitors who may have a long-term injury preventing them from travelling as fast as they otherwise could. This system is called hCOW.
A detailed description of the first system may be found on here (on the cover page of the Six Mile Water results). A detailed description of hCOW may be found here and its application to the 2023 WEE series here.
