About the Awards

The Club Standards Awards are intended as a way of recognising the achievements of our members and to encourage and recognise improvement. They are based on age gradings in qualifying events.

Performances in three different qualifying distances must be achieved between 1st November in one year and 31st October the next year. This gives us time to make presentations at the Club's Awards evening in November each year.

This year only, retrospective awards will be made to take into account performances by current club members in past years.


If you'd like to understand how age grading works or calculate performances needed to achieve an age grade see Age Grading

Qualifying distances

  • 1 Mile - Club timed mile
  • 5k - or ParkRun
  • 10k
  • 10m
  • Half Marathon
  • Marathon


  • Only performances recorded on the Whitchurch Whippets website will be recognised
  • Only the age gradings calculated on the Whitchurch Whippets website will be used
  • Performances over three qualifying distances are needed to qualify for a standard
  • The lowest rated performance of your three qualifying performances will determine your standard - see example below
  • The qualifying period runs from 1st November to 31st October
  • You must be a paid up member at 31st October to qualify for an award
  • Only race performances while a paid up Whippet will be counted.
  • Awards will be made when gaining your first standard or on achieving a higher standard


In this example the runner gains a "Black" standard (64 - 64.99%) because of the weaker performance in the HM. A slight improvement in that event would have qualified our mystery runner for a "Bronze" standard (65-69.99%). Seconds really do matter!


2019 Awards

These awards are for performances from 1st November 2018 to 31st October 2019.

The table below shows standards achieved so far this year as shown in the column YEAR. Your best three event percentages are shown. The lowest percentage determines your standard.

The BEST column shows the highest standard reached and the AWARDED column shows when that standard was awarded.

If the AWARDED columm says 2019 then you will get a Standard mug at the Birthday Bash in November. If the AWARDED column shows an earlier year then you have not acheived a higher standard this year.

If your name is not in the list, then you have not yet done 3 qualifying distances. There is still time for better performances to be acheived.

I'm still checking this table as I've only just automated what was a manual process. So, if you spot any problems please let me know.

2015 Awards

The table below shows Club Standards calculated up to 31st October 2015. All years used have been award years: 1st November to 31st October.

If you think your award is wrong, or that I have missed a performance please let me know. If you're not on the list I probably haven't got three qualifying performances recorded for you in a single year!

The year shown is the first year in which your highest level standard was achieved. It may have been achieved in more than one year - the year is not very relevant!

If you want me to include missing performances I will need details of what race, when, where and a web address where I can find the official results. If I can't find the official results I'm afraid I won't be able to register your result. We have to have standards, don't you know!
