This championship aims to reward effort rather than outright speed.  Actual race times are adjusted for age, so that older runners get their times reduced to what it is calculated they would have achieved in their prime.  The adjustments are made using an online age-graded results calculator.  The effects don’t do in until around 35, so if you are younger than this, your times won’t change.  The age-adjusted times are used to put runners in a revised race order.  Points are then assigned according to race position (1 point for first, 2 for second, and so on).  The championship is based around 12 local races, roughly one each month as well as your best 5K and marathon for the year.  You must have participated in (and finished) 5 of the events to qualify.  Your points from your best 5 race results are then added up, and the lower your overall total is, the better you have done.  There are separate bunny rabbit awards for the three best men and three best women.

Please submit your best 5K and marathon times as and when they happen to results@dorsetdoddlers.org  and/or message Jane Ward so that they can be kept updated throughout the year.
