BC's Best of the Best 2004
Here are listed the best overall road running performances by BC athletes in 2004.
How do you determine if a 5K run in 14:57 by a 15 year old boy is intrinsically better than
a half marathon run in 1:41:36 by a 70 year old woman?
One way is to use age standards. Dividing an "age standard" for a person's age/event by the time he/she ran,
gives an age graded performance percentage. Performances over 90% are considered world class.
An online version of this calculator
is available to check your own age-graded performance.
Age reflects age on the day of the race.
An "a" beside a time indicates a race where the start/finish separation is greater than 30%
of the race distance, or the net elevation drop is between 1 and 5 metres per kilometre.
Such performances are invalid for record purposes because of the assistance that might be
gained from a tailwind or the overall downhill nature of the course.
Races with a net elevation drop in excess of 5 metres per kilometre are excluded.
