Ever wanted to track your running progress or consider how your age / sex contributes to your performance ?
The NJ Club Performance Standards are a new initiative that combine an age grading formula with our own ranking system which you can use to track your progress and compare performances across different distances.
So how does it work ? If you are a regular parkrunner you will probably be familiar with the age grading they provide with their results service.
In essence, age grading takes your time and uses the world record time for your sex and age to produce a score (a percentage). This score allows you to compare your personal performance against other people’s performances even though they might be a different age and a different sex to you – the higher the score the better the performance.
Our resident journalist / statistician Chris Aylmer has very kindly offered to provide a monthly update on notable performances and progress by our club members.
