County Standards


Since 2014, the club introduced County Standard awards for all members who wish to participate. The system works as follows:

  • Each race completed by a member over a certified distance is age-graded and then given a rating: Gold, Silver, Bronze etc using predefined performance bands
  • To qualify for an award, the club member has to record in 5 different distances during the year to gain an overall County Standard level, rewarded with a club certificate
  • Race selection for the club championship will be adjusted to assist the collection of different distances, but any certified race will count
  • A certified race is any race with an accurately measured course. parkruns are included and Road Races will be provide a better opportunity to gain a faster time than off-road
  • Member’s progress towards their overall County Standard can be viewed via the Club Championship Table (see separate tab)
