    Four on the Fourth York, Maine

…….JIM JONES………………….37:27…65.13…..58.08….21……………………3rd M60-69 (of 18)…………….. The WAVA you might’ve noticed is slightly different for men and women. This is because its values for men are derived from a different standard than that for women. “Any other July 4th race”
qualifies as a Grand Prix point earner (therefore, the Needham, Sudbury and Kennebunkport races shown at end). – Age-graded time is done for the exact year (with 2 decimal positions) of racer’s age, rather than by the 10-year age division the runner is in, calculated on WMA website, choose correct distance (e.g., “5 mile road” if a road, not track, race); fill in other appropriate fields, separating hours, minutes and seconds by colons; Ages are calculated to one one-hundredth because there is often such a closeness in age-graded times that a finer age-graded computation than 2-digit ages is more accurate. Plus, you get a faster age-graded time this way!
