These were first recorded in the early 1990's and have been kept up-to-date since then.
Records are based on first-claim membership for open events, in other words you can only claim the club record if you run the race with "Spectrum Striders" as your first-claim club. If you run in a club event (for example one of the club mile races), then the time will count as a record even if Striders are not your first-claim club.
Records are only valid when set over accurately measured courses. Records can be set in races which are not in the club championship, as long as the course is accurately measured.
The time we use for Club record purposes is that which is shown in the official race results, rather than the time you take on your watch. If the race uses chip timing, the chip time (rather than the gun time) is accepted as the club record.
We keep records for:
The Club Road Race Standards were first introduced in 2000. The idea is to have race time targets (the standards) to which club members of all abilities can aim. They can help us to improve our own race times and our success in achieving a standard is recognised within the club.
We have 5 different levels which we have called copper (the easiest), bronze, silver, gold and platinum (the hardest). There are standard times for each level for all the major road race distances and for each age, both male & female. To achieve a standard, you need to equal or better the standard time in 3 different distances during the year.
The standards certificates are presented at the Annual Awards Dinner Dance around Christmas time.
