We appreciate that runners come to our club for a variety of reasons, and for those that are seeking personal improvement at race events, as a form of added motivation we have introduced Club Standards.

These provide runners with a fair comparison of their running achievements across age and sex, since they use age-grading, which you will likely have seen if you’ve ever done parkrun.

Our standards are based on the following percentages of the latest WMA tables:

Diamond: 80%

Gold A: 75%

Gold B: 70%

Silver A: 65%

Silver B: 60%

Bronze A: 55%

Bronze B: 50%

To qualify, you need to equal or better the standard time for your age and sex, over races at any of the following distances: 5km (excluding parkrun), 5 miles, 10km, 10 miles, half marathon, marathon.

To find your standard times, select your age and sex in the table at the following link: https://sites.google.com/view/bbhstandards/home
