Grand Prix points are based on male & female Age-graded times (and WAVA% – % of world record for exact age for sex – to corroborate)
Age-graded times are basically the times you ran when in your 20’s. It is amazingly accurate in this regard.
The Age-Graded times above show approximately WHAT YOU WOULD”VE RUN for that distance in your 20’s or early 30’s. And it’s amazingly ACCURATE. BEYOND that, it shows how much you would NORMALLY SLOW BY over the NEXT YEAR: A 35-year-old woman doing a ~21:40 in a 5K would slow by ~5 seconds over the next year. A 43-year-old woman by ~10 seconds per 5K; a 74-year-old guy doing a ~27:30 would slow by ~30 seconds! So, DON’T WORRY – it’s NORMAL!!
