Road Race Standards
After reviewing the Road Race Standards for the Club, it was decided to revise them.
The new standard times are based on the NATIONAL AGE-GRADE TABLES.
These tables compare times with a group of the top world times produced by a number of elite athletes in each 5-year age group.
It is our intention for this to make the Standards more generous to Club Members.
Note from April 2022 when these new times come into effect a new race distance will be introduced, this being for 5K.
Park Run times will NOT BE ALLOWED for this distance, because Park Runs are not accurately measured
The new STANDARDS will therefore be set at a percentage of the AGE-GRADE TABLES
These standards are for Sutton-in-Ashfield Harriers & Athletic Club First Claim Members ONLY
To be awarded a DIAMOND-GOLD-SILVER-BRONZE AWARD the necessary STANDARD must be achieved in THREE of the SIX distances in the required AGE GROUPS the lowest standard achieved will be the ONE AWARDED
The STANDARDS must be achieved in a 12 month period from achieving the first registered grading
Times and details to be registered with a member of the General Committee. Presentation will be given
at the CLUB’S ANNUAL AWARDS EVENING
These standards would come into effect from the year
