Star Awards

Star Award

Each year at our AGM we award our adult and junior star awards. We take the times for all members from 39 races run during the year over multiple different distances from 5, 7, and 10 miles, plus 5k, 10K, half and full marathon. Using tables based on World Standard Age Related Scores, times will be converted into points. From the 39 races we then take your best 4 points score and total them together giving us your star score.

This world age grading system allows for equal competition for the awards between males and females, plus recognising changing performance as athletes age. E.g. In a five mile race to score 70 points a 35year old male must run 36minutes 45seconds, a 35 year old female needs to run 43minutes 16seconds and a 60 year old male 46minutes 26seconds.)

You have to have raced in 4 or more races to qualify and once all the points are added up we calculate the winner. (NB The First Place Winners from previous years are not eligible for the following years awards.)

Most Improved Harrier Award

The club also has a "Most Improved Harrier Award". To be considered for this award runners must have scored points in 4 races in the previous year. Using the same points calculation as in the star awards we compare your total for the best for races this year to last year. The person who has had improved the most wins, it's that simple.

Junior Star Award

The club also has an annual "Junior Star Award" based upon a similar points system but using the best race results achieved over three different distances taken from events of 1.1, 2.5. 4 and 5 miles plus 5k. As before the scores are recorded by the star awards officer throughout the year.
