Club Records

Club Records are available for:


- Club records must be set in an official, permitted and certified race: This is to ensure the time was achieved in a race situation on an accurately measured course. Note, this means a time achieved in a parkrun will not count as a 5k record as the events are not certified or advertised as races. 

- The results must show St Albans Striders as the affiliated club. 

- A club vest must be worn. 

- You must be a paid-up member of the club when setting the record.

- First claim members can achieve a track record if competing for St Albans AC post 2012 when the clubs amalgamated for competitions.

- Second claim members can achieve a record if they are competing in a road race in which they cannot represent their first claim club. 

- Where both gun and chip times are available, the chip time should be used.

- Club records are available in the following age categories: Women - Senior, V35, V45, V55, V65 etc. Men - Senior, V40, V50, V60 etc. Asterisks around a time denotes the overall club record for the fastest time achieved across all age categories. 

- The following IAAF competition rules are adopted for club records in road running events: The start and finish points of a course, measured along a theoretical straight line between them, shall not be further apart than 50% of the race distance. The overall decrease in elevation between the start and finish shall not exceed 1:1000, i.e. 1m per km.
