Revised Handicapping Guidelines

The major changes are as follows:

1) “Converted Time” In order to compare performances over a variety of distances a formula is used to get times to a 10klm equivalent. A multiple will be applied to the kilometre rate for each distance then multiplied by 10 (for the number of kilometres). Multiples are:

  • 5k x 1.06,
  • 6k x 1.04,
  • 8k x 1.015

Example: 20 min 5k has a k rate of 4:00. Therefore 4:00 x 1.06 = 4:14 x 10 = 42:24

Hopefully the way that we convert times now is a bit clearer and importantly we believe that this is a more accurate process.
