Hillingdon Park Runners 2015

5K PARKRUNS are held every Saturday morning, all year round, and is becoming a world fashion for Massive 5K running participation reports Stevan Dokic. There are nearly 800,000 free members and over 70,000 running every week. Held at 9 am at local park venues all over the UK and going Global. With many Athletes and beginners looking for good improvement in fitness and shape, training, or just a run out. Hillingdon AC has many athletic members participation in these busy Park runs at our local venues. The 3 local venues which are popular for a number of HAC athletes attending are Black Park 80, Northolt 40 and Cassiobury Park 14. They are many other runs all over the UK and closer to home that our athletes have run. All these park runs are not official races and are called runs. These are still registered on the UK power of 10.

I have taken a look at these runs and in order placed our 12 fastest Men and Veteran men and 12 top Ladies. There is a good chance that I might have missed out 1 or 2 names. This is because of the number of races and athletes not putting the Hillingdon athletic club against there name. There is a percentage put with your run and this is an explanation from the park Run Web site;

All parkrun events use age grading to allow athletes to compare results.
Age grading takes your time and uses the world record time for your sex and age to produce a score (a percentage). This score allows you to compare your personal performance against other people’s performances even though they might be a different age and a different sex to you – the higher the score the better the performance.
The scores can also be compared across different race distances – to allow you to, for example, compare a 5km time against a marathon.
Age Grades are calculated to allow rough comparisons between all our runners, and should not be taken too seriously. For example, age grading makes no allowance for different weather conditions or the varying terrains of our courses.
We do not share the actual table used to perform the calculations but it is loosely based on the tables produced by WMA, previously known as WAVA.

There are a number of our athletes just outside these top 12 times. A good number are just outside a place in the top 12. So this could change by the end of the year.

There are also a number of our juniors running the junior 2K park runs held on Sunday. Check Parkrun website for more details.
