County Standards

The County Stands scheme is endorsed by the both the Network and LRRL. We have extended the scheme to include a full set of standards for males up to 85-89 and females up to 75-79 (beyond the ages of anyone currently competing in LRRL races). We hope that by creating a scheme covering a wide range of abilities we’ll motivate more people to improve their running. Certificates are issued on the basis of performances at 5 distances (9 for distinction) over the course of a calendar year. To qualify, you must run your time (chip times are OK) in a recognised race with an accurately measured course* (unfortunately, this currently excludes all parkruns except Braunstone and Leicester Victoria). Standard times are those for the age you were on race day. Claims should be submitted to Dave Lodwick by the 21st of January each year. By opting for narrower bands than some club schemes, we hope that most people will find aiming for the next category a realistic possibility and can make it a focus for training.

*In general, trail races will not count because they are not accurately measured.
