Road Race Club Standards

Sutton-in-Ashfield Harriers & Athletic Club 

Club Road Race Standards

The standard times are based on the 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.


The new STANDARDS will therefore be set at a percentage of the AGE-GRADE TABLES


A new DIAMOND STANDARD has been introduced, being reserved for those exceptional athletes who feature in published NATIONAL RANKINGS.


MEN                        WOMEN


GOLD 80%             GOLD 80%

SILVER 75%            SILVER 75%

BRONZE 70%         BRONZE 70%

These standards would come into effect from the year APRIL 2009.



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 FIVE 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
