Club Standards – The basic idea of a club standard is to give all members the opportunity to work towards a ‘standard’ which is based on a performance level for your age. The World Association of Veteran Athletes (WAVA) produces detailed tables of age-grading for each distance and age. We then use these tables to produce a percentage for each formal race entered, which is considered to be an equivalent age-group performance rating.

Gold Standard – Complete 6 formal events 1 of which must be a minimum of a marathon, 4 of which must be over 70% WAVA.

Jason Kelly

Silver Standard – Complete 5 formal events 1 of which must be a minimum of a half marathon, 3 of which must be over 60% WAVA.

Winner – Kate Robertson – Kate was the unanimous choice of the club membership and committee for the 2018 star award.

In addition Kate has given her time for others as a coach and committee member in the running club.  She is also event director for parkrun Stonehaven, which regularly attracts upwards of 50 people to Mineralwell park on a Saturday, benefitting the community by improving overall fitness and community spirit, also obtaining a defibrillator which is has been made available for other community events.
