Club Standards

Rank Yourself within Striders
Club Standards are goal times to help you challenge and encourage yourself. They let you work out how you're doing in your running right now - bearing in mind the thing none of us can reduce is our age. 

Our seven standards are Iron, Bronze, Silver, Gold, Diamond, Platinum and Super Platinum and they are available for 5k, 10k, half marathon and marathon distances. 10 miles can be used as an alternative to the Half Marathon.

How to work out your Club Standard
  1. Look for your gender and age category in the table below (if your age category changed last year or this year, think back to how old you were on race day and use this age category to obtain your Club Standard for the race)
  2. Use your best race times for this calendar year, or last calendar year, exceptionally Due to Covid 2019 is also included for this year only, normally only the current and last year will count. A blistering PB from 2018 or before doesn't count. Note that official race results times are what count, to achieve a standard your published result must equal or better the time in the grid. Please do not trouble our moderate with requests to turn a blind eye if your result is one, or even a few seconds over, just run a bit faster in the next race.
  3. Where the official race distance is not the same as the standard (by up to half a mile) then your time will be adjust pro rata to the nearest second above, based on the quoted distance of the race. This is to allow for the fact that very often cross country races do not exactly match the nominal distance - for example the 2021 Nene Valley 10 is stated as 10.4 miles. Runners watch distances (or times) will not be used.
  4. To achieve a Club Standard you need three or more results at that level (or better) at three different distance categoriese.g. 5k(A) Gold, 10k (B) Gold, half marathon (C) Diamond would qualify you for Gold. Similarly, 5k(A) Diamond, 10k(B) Diamond, 10 Mile(C) Platinum, marathon (D) Bronze would qualify you for Diamond. 10 mile and half marathon are both Category C. 
  5. Finally, email your race times and a link to the race's official results page to standards@stamfordstriders.org for verification along with your name and date of birth and will soon appear our Club Standards page. Claims may be submitted for single races or for multiples to catch up initially. The moderators job will be easier if lots of Striders claim for a race promptly after the race.
  6. Note that Club Standards are for paid up Striders, you might be lucky and get away with it but the only way to be sure that a result counts is for you to have been paid up on the date of the race.
Enough small talk, here are the tables:
