For a while due to Covid races weren’t on the agenda so any training runs were not being considered as valid. This has been changed so if you feel you have achieved a standard time i.e. 5k, 5m 10k, 10m, half marathon or marathon time please let me know so I can update your records.
To receive an award you must achieve the standard at 4 out of the 6 distances. You can read about the rules in this post from 2nd February. The time periods go in 5 year bands commencing on your birth date, MO, FO, M40-44, F35-39, etc. For example if Joe Bloggs’ birth date is 9/2/1990 this means he is in the MO category until 8/2/2030. So the next day on his 40th birthday he moves up to the 40-44 age group. He has already qualified for a bronze award but has over 8 years to gain Silver, Gold and Diamond awards in that order! I think it’s safe to say that the majority of us are in the older age groups!
To check the relevant times for your age go to Club Documents in the Members Area. I hope this is crystal clear. Any queries contact me please on email@example.com
Yours in Sport
