part of the Novosco 10k Grand Prix
The Novosco 10K Grand Prix is a not-for-profit 10km running race competition starting in March 2016 until November 2016. All 13 races will be accurately measured and certified as 10km before race day, have permits from AthleticsNI, agree to use chip timing services as provided by ChampionChip Ireland and displayed on the AthleticsNI fixture list.
The runners performances at each race will be compared to the Age Graded Tables. Age grading is a way to adjust the runners performance according to age and gender. The age-grading tables were developed by the World Association of Veteran Athletes, the world governing body for track and field, long distance running and race walking for veteran athletes. The tables were first published in 1989.
For example a 35 year old male running 31 minutes gets a score of 87.0% whilst a 25 year old female recording 33 minutes gets a percentage score of 91.9%.
Prizes of the Novosco 10K Grand Prix will be awarded to the top runners in the table overall regardless of age and gender. A team prize will be provided with a team score being calculated on placings for the club members in the overall ranking table in accordance with the usual method at a road race with the best 10 club members to count. There will only be one prize awarded per club.
