We will be using the calculator from HMRRC.com to provide you with an achievement percentile for a 5K distance based on Age-graded and Gender information. (click link: https://www.hmrrc.com/members/tools/pace-calculator/age-graded-calculator)
Your performance will be judged using an achievement percentile without bias for gender or the aging process (in other words, you are measured against a specific standard for your age and sex). Globally, these percentiles can be interpreted as follows so you can see where you compare:
Over 90% --- World Class
Over 80% --- National Class
Over 70% --- Regional Class
Over 60% --- Local Class
*** THE PERSON WITH THE HIGHEST ACHIEVEMENT PERCENTILE WILL BE DECLARED THE WINNER OF EACH COMPETITION***
