Rules:

You must finish at least 6 of the 24 races to qualify, but your score will be calculated on the top six highest scores if you finish in more than six of the races. The standings are calculated using an age grading system, based on performances in that specific race. For instance, a 41 year old male finishes with time of 45:25 and the M40 category is won by someone with a time of 42:51; 42:51/45:25 x 100 = 94.35%.

Traditional age categories will be used; ie SM, M40, M50, M60, SF, F35, F45, F55 etc. If the race provides more detailed age categories (ie. 5 year intervals) then age grades will still be calculated based on the traditional categories, not those used by the race. If the race uses less detailed age categories (ie. Senior male, Vet male, Supervet male) then it is not usually possible to get more detailed information, and those categories shall be used.

If a runner in an older age category has a better time than one in a younger category (ie. a M40 wins the race, beating all the SM runners) then that time cascades down, meaning that the best time for both the M40 and SM categories are that set by the winning M40 runner.

You do not need to submit your results; as long as you listed Running Forever RC as your club, we will extract the results. If you forget to enter the club name, or use some exotic variation (Taunton's Forever Running Club etc.) then we may not spot it!
