Most Improved

These awards are to recognise those who have improved their times over a number of different distances. The required distances have been changed this year to make it more flexible.

Members should submit a table of their personal bests from preceding two seasons. These can be from any races, in any countries, as long as the race distance is accurate.

Valid distances:

  • 5 kilometres
  • 10 kilometres
  • 10 miles
  • Half marathon
  • 20 mile
  • Marathon

Only three out of the six distances need be completed, but times must be available for both seasons and an improvement must be shown in the three distances. Data must be sent to the Race Results Coordinator by 31st December.

Improvements will be calculated as a percentage of each race time. The precentage improvements will be summed across the three chosen distances. Largest total percentage wins.

Most Improved Awards will be presented to male and female members in the following categories:

  • Senior – women under 35 years; men under 40 years
  • Veteran – women 35 to 44 years; men 40 to 49 years
  • Super-Vet – women 45 to 54 years; men 50 to 59 years
  • Vintage – women 55+; men 60+
