Ponteland Runners Annual Club Championships
Every year the runs a club championship and Parkrun competition intended to reward the frequency and quality of competition performances and structured in such a way that all have a chance of picking up a prize. A major objective is to see as many Ponteland Runners as possible promoting the club in races on the roads and paths of the North East and beyond.
HOW IT WORKS?
For the club championship we use the WAVA system which uses world record information set by people of all ages, male and female. For example, if the world record marathon time for a 60 year old male is 2:38:15 and you’re a 60 year old male and run a marathon in 4:30:00 you would earn a score of 56.73%, because you ran at just over half the record pace. That translates into 56.73 points in the competition
Here are some recent examples of what the scores would be for 40 and 42 minute times, for a 10k race, for 40 and 50 year old male and female runners:
|10K||40 minutes||42 minutes|
|Man – 40 years old||71.02||67.64|
|Woman – 40 years old||78.56||74.82|
|Man – 50 years old||76.74||73.09|
|Woman – 50 years old||86.70||82.57|
The results table might look something like this part way through the season.
