What are the Club Standards?

2016 has been and gone, so Club Standards for 2017 begin afresh from January.

To achieve the Bronze Standard members must achieve 50+% WAVA (age-related) score over 4 different distances, one of which must be a 10k (or greater) event.

To achieve the Silver Standard members must achieve 55+% WAVA score over 5 different distances, one of which must be a 10 mile (or greater) event.

To achieve the Gold Standard members must achieve 60+% WAVA score over 5 different distances, PLUS a marathon regardless of WAVA score.

To achieve the Platinum Standard members must achieve 65+% WAVA score over 5 different distances, including a marathon with WAVA score of 65+%.

If you have completed a race and wish it to count towards a particular standard then let us know, via the club email, and we’ll list your results here. We need to know the event, distance, date, your time and age on the day of the race. If you haven’t worked out your WAVA score, we’ll do it for you, but only if you provide the information  listed.

Only events held during 2017 can be considered for inclusion.

All race events & results must be verifiable through official means, such as web sites, club records etc. and it must be possible to calculate a WAVA score from these results. The Committee reserve the right to veto certain races which are not officially measured/hold a race certificate or those that are deemed untypical e.g. mostly downhill! But we will be inclined to accept times that are well within the requisite WAVA score.

Distances will range from 1 mile to ultra-marathons and can include:

1 mile club time trial; any parkrun (5k) at any venue; a 5 mile, 10k, 10 mile, half and full marathons.

There are many other events over differing distances, such as the Helmdon Hurler 4.3 miles, Stratford 12k (Not the Roman IX), Banbury 15 mile and Oakley 20 which can also be included.

All events MUST be completed in the same calendar year i.e. between January 1st and December 31st in order for them to contribute towards the standards.

It is the individual member’s responsibilty to inform the person in charge of the Club Standards of their results.
