There are 4 different levels to aim for (detailed below), which are based on the WAVA age related gradings.
To find your age graded %, or to calculate what times you need to run to achieve an award, please use ONLY this calculator.
To achieve the Bronze Standard:
Members must achieve 55+% WAVA (age-related) score over 4 different distances, one of which must be a 10k (or greater) event.
To achieve the Silver Standard:
Members must achieve 60+% WAVA score over 5 different distances, one of which must be a 10 mile (or greater) event.
To achieve the Gold Standard:
Members must achieve 65+% WAVA score over 5 different distances, one of which must be a Half Marathon (or greater) event.
To achieve the Platinum Standard:
Members must achieve 70+% WAVA score over 5 different distances, including a marathon with WAVA score of 70+%.
All race events & results must be verifiable through official means and a URL of the results must be submitted as part of your submission, which also must include a WAVA score. A template has been provided which you can download, to help you include all the evidence we need. The Committee reserve the right to veto certain races which are not officially measured/hold a race licence or those that are deemed untypical. However, the committee are likely to accept performances where they are well within the required WAVA scores. Events do not have to be part of the club championship events.
NOTE: ANY OF THE VIRTUAL CLUB CHAMPIONSHIP ROUTES CARRIED OUT SINCE JAN 2022 CAN BE USED FOR WAVA.
All events MUST be completed in the same calendar year i.e. between January 1st and October 21st 2022 in order for them to contribute towards the standards (races already completed since 1st January can be included). Awards will be presented at the AGM in November.
It is the individual members’ responsibility to inform the club via [email protected] of their results, using this template.
