Club Standards

In 2017 we have introduced a series of club standards to apply to road distances. The rationale of the standards is (a) to provide a focus for runners on the improvement curve and (b) to provide a motivation for those moving through the age groups whose PB days may be behind them. For each age category there is a set of 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th class standards to attain. These are based on WAVA age-graded tables with each set of 1st class standard times being between 77-80%. This is a system used successfully in other clubs.
Please note these are not minimum standards for members and they are entirely voluntary – the club welcomes all runners of all abilities and has a very wide range within the membership!

  1. Times run in races from 1 January 2017 onwards will count towards the club standards.
  2. To achieve a standard a runner needs to complete any 3 of the 6 distances to the required standard.
  3. The qualifying period for a standard is the whole 5 years within which a runner is within a particular category.
  4. All times must be on UKA or ARC measured courses. In the case of the 5K distance, there is a list of parkrun courses which have been measured by a certified course measurer which can count towards achieving the standard. This can be found here. 5000m and 10000m track races can also count for 5K and 10K respectively.
  5. Certificates will be awarded to all runners completing a new standard at the club’s Annual Presentation Evening.
  6. John Broom will circulate a proforma at the end of the calendar year for runners wishing to claim a standard award and ratify these times with reference to Power of 10 and other online results systems.

The current listings for 2017 are here.

The standards for each age group are listed below. Any questions please ask John Broom!
