Club Standards

PERTH ROAD RUNNERS – CLUB STANDARDS

Club Standards are a set of goal times (shown below) that are designed to challenge the individual runner, irrespective of age or gender. There are six Standards, GREEN, BRONZE, SILVER, GOLD, PLATINUM & DIAMOND. These in turn are set for six race distances: 5K, 5 Miles, 10K, 10 Miles, Half-Marathon & Marathon.

The idea is that each runner will look at/to the Standards for their particular age group and gender and work out to which Standard they aspire. To achieve that Standard, they must complete four of the six goal times for that age category (eg a 40-yr-old runner has until his/her 45th birthday to achieve four of the six qualifying times).

If the runner finds they continue to improve, they would then set their sights higher at the next level within that age bracket, for the Standards to maintain their challenge. 

Awards will be made when four distances (or more) have been achieved. It’s the responsibility of the runner to forward all qualifying times (+ where and when achieved) to James Waldie, so these can be verified before any award is made (at the Club presentation evening, each Feb or March).

It is quite common for runners to leave the age group before bringing together their best times in that bracket to make a claim. For members using this approach, we ask them to submit their claim within six months of leaving the age group!

For new members of PRR, qualifying times run up to one year before joining the Club are eligible.

To be eligible, races must have a distance certificate in place, or otherwise be approved by the Committee for Standards use. We have occasionally allowed our own measured courses (eg Dron 5M) on timed Club race evenings (only). This is unusual; any such occasions will be badged as eligible in advance.

Downhill courses invariably create some discussion: two classic such examples are the Loch Ness Marathon and Brampton-Carlisle 10M (both of which are permitted for Standards use). If targeting another significantly-downhill course for your Standards, we suggest contacting James first to verify it’ll be accepted.

The Standards shown below came into force on 1st July 2019 and these are the only Standards in force; copies of the previous (and slightly easier) set can still be found by a web search … these are alas no longer valid! 

As to what is awarded: a Certificate (example shown below) is presented for all levels, plus

  • for Green, Bronze, Silver and Gold – a pin badge.
  • for Platinum – a medal and engraved inlay case.
  • for Diamond – an engraved glass ‘diamond’.

To submit a claim, or for any queries, please contact James Waldie, whose e-mail is vice@perthroadrunners.co.uk.
