New Forest Runners Badge Scheme
Badge Scheme Times
(click on appropriate category below)
The Badge scheme is an annual personal challenge and motivator. Run 3 or more different qualifying distances to see which standard you have achieved within the badge scheme (based on your finish time, age and gender). Bronze , Silver, Gold through to Diamond
When does it happen?
Every year beginning 1st January – 31st December (applications to be made by 10thDecember).
How many races do I need to do?
You can take part in as many races as you like during the year; only 3 races (different distances) are required to qualify.
How can I take part?
- Take a look at the Badge Scheme data appropriate to you (Mens/Ladies/Juniors). This has the relevant time for each badge (Bronze, Silver, Gold, Diamond) and each age category.
- Keep a record of your official times and dates of races.
- Having taken part in numerous races during the year, select your 3 best races of varying distances e.g Mile Run, Wilverley timed run, 5km (inc Park Run), 10 miles, Half marathon, Full marathon
- Look at your age category (at the time of your race) and take your times to see which badge zone/s you fall into. If you fall into more than one category for your best 3 races it is the lowest one that will count.
How do I apply?
When do I receive my Award?
Presentations are made at the Club’s Annual Awards Dinner in January.
Entering each year gives you a good indication of your annual performance. As the years roll on it may be heartening to know that your times are as good as ever or even like a ‘fine wine’ improving with age!
