What is it?
The MAC Road Running Championships is a series open to all MAC senior members, running April to March to encourage healthy club competition. For 2017-18 the competition is a level playing field as both age and gender will be factored in to find the overall male & female road running champions 2017.
Check back for a new improved format. Your road running captain Jon Oliver is busy working on a new improved format for 2018-19!
How does it work?
Over the series of races your age-graded result for each race is calculated. The average of your highest scores is then used to calculate your age-grade percentage for the series. The male & female MAC members with the highest overall percentage will then be awarded at the prestigious Championship Trophies at the Annual Dinner/Awards Evening.
Age Grading definition: The basic principle is to arrive at a percentage grading value which is calculated by dividing your race time with the World Record performance time for your age & gender category. For example, if the World Record for a 40 year old male over 10 miles was 46:31 and Joe Bloggs runs the 10 miles in 58:31 his age-graded performance would be 46:31 divided by 58:30 = 79.5%
