The Dôme Café 5km Handicap

The club runs a 5km handicap event once per month.

The monthly winner (first eligible over the line), wins a $10 coffee voucher courtesy of Dôme Café, Busselton. As it is a handicap event, everyone has a chance of monthly and annual success. It is an exciting event and includes an annual trophy, donated by Rob Antonelli, for the winner and trophies for the most improved male and female.

Entry into this is free for paid club members. Anyone who is not a member is definitely welcome to run with us, for the cost of a gold coin donation. Note - this gold coin entry fee for visitors will be waived for events when our club specifically invites another club to participate.


Handicaps are calculated based on a 30 minute finish time, rounded down to the nearest 15 seconds. This means, if you take between 25:00 and 25:15 to run 5km, you will start at 5:15, so all runners finish at approximately the same time with just over 30 minutes on the race clock.

Your glorious handicapper will adjust your handicap each month based on your previous results.

Runners that have run at least one previous 5km handicap time are eligible to win the prize.
