What is a HANDICAP??

A handicap represents the percentage your time is behind a par time or National Standard Par, in this case a time that Casey Puckett would have gotten on the course. (e.g. 15 handicap = 15 percent behind Casey's time). The National Standard is the Par Time or Casey Puckett's "0" handicap which every racer competes against when they race NASTAR.

Does a handicap change or get better with your age and gender?

ABSOLUTELY NOT!

A handicap is a straight percentage. It is straight math. We take your time and compare it to the par time. Then we detrmine what percent slower your time is compared to the par time. So, the person in the race with the lowest time has the lowest handicap in a given run. Age and gender DO NOT change straight times or handicaps!
