Age Graded Champion
From the main championship races the Age Graded Champion is calculated.
This is based upon timed races over a measured distances. Using known world records for each age and from each event, the relative performance percentage of the runner can be calculated and the high the percentage the better. This method allows us to compare the performances of all members independent of age and gender. At the end of the season the Age Graded Champion for the club is declared
