AGE GRADED RESULTS
The series results will be scored according to Age-Graded Standards. (All events will be scored normally at the event and awards given accordingly, Age-Graded results only apply to Series Points)
What is Age-Graded Results you ask?
Age-Graded Results level the playing field. It basically takes all of the results from that day, in that particular race distance, then calculates that performance to the participants age. Therefore, it trys to calculate what the current time for a 50 year old, or 45 year old would have been at their prime (25 years old). Therefore for most runners past their mid-20s, times are normally adjusted downward. Here is an example of how our past Little Big Econ race was and would have been scored:
