Club Standards

What is the standards award scheme?

The idea of the standards award scheme is to give runners in the club goal incentives to improve their race times.  In addition it can also be a useful training tool to gauge improvement.

The scheme runs from 1st January to 31st December each year.

Runners will be awarded a certificate and medal appropriate to the standard achieved. Members will need to apply for their standard by completing the form and sending it to the standards officer before mid January (date to be announced each year).

How does it work?

There are time standards for each age group. Your age category is your age on race day. Therefore, if your birthday means you change category part way through a year, the standard times before your birthday must be for the lower age category, and times after your birthday for the higher age category.

To be awarded a standard you must complete at least 5 distances, to gain a distinction you must qualify for 9 distances.  There are 10 distances for you to select from - 5k, 5 miles, 6 miles, 10k, 7 miles, 8 miles, 10 miles, half marathon, 20 miles and the Marathon. 50k is no longer applicable.

However, please note that as from January 2016 there is a further rule to the 5 distances standard, you may only use 2 distances from the 4 middle distances: 6 mile, 10k, 7 mile and 8 mile.

All times must be achieved at recognized athletic affiliated events with accurately measured courses (no fun runs, cross country or off-road events).

The times shown below are the minimum required to achieve the standard.

Club Awards

The awards for the club standards scheme will be given out at the presentation night. (Which usually takes place in January/February)

The award will consist of a corresponding medal and certificate for the achieved standard. A special prize will be issued by the club for anyone attaining the Diamond standard and also the Distinction award.

Please note: It would be very beneficial if the runners keeps a record of the races that they gained the standard for.

Below are some examples of races that are eligible for club standards:

Parkrun, Hinckley 5k, Huncote 5, Ashby 5, Swithland 6, Barrow 6, Desford 10k, Hungerton 7, Shepshed 7, John Fraser 10, Hinckley half marathon, Leicester half marathon, Belvoir Half marathon, Ashby 20, Oakley 20, Leicester marathon, London marathon.
