Ultimate Runner

Ultimate Runner Competition

The Ultimate Runner Competition is an age graded and gender graded competition consisting of the following 4 events.  All events are run separately but on the same night.  At the end of the night, the man and woman with the highest age-graded score are crowned Ultimate Runners!

400 meters
800 meters
1-mile
5K through Mine Falls Park finishing on the track

Results are age and gender graded by calculating the competitor’s age standard as a percentage of the competitor's time for each event.

The highest average percentage over the 4 events determines the Ultimate Runner

For example, if the age 50 standard for 400 meters is 51 seconds...
Time of 80 seconds by a 50 year old achieves a percentage of 63.75% (51/80 = .6375)
Time of 70 seconds by a 50 year old achieves a percentage of 72.86% (51/70 = .7286)
Similar calculations are performed for the other 3 events and averaged over the four events. The highest average determines the Ultimate Runner.

You can sign-up for the Ultimate Runner at track on Wednesday evenings.  There is no entry fee.  Ultimate Runner is only open to Gate City Strider members.
