Performance Standards

To motivate and encourage members to compete in races and work to improve their times the club operates an awards scheme based on National Running Standards; Diamond, Gold, Silver and Bronze.

Any member of Great Bentley Running Club is eligible to achieve a club standard.  The aim of the standards is to give each runner, regardless of ability, the motivation and the focus to train for a specific goal.

Please be aware of the following rules, which will be strictly adhered to :-

  1. It is your responsibilty to notify Eric Shaw, via email or Facebook, of your time (including race name and date). It must have been achieved on an officially timed and measured course.
  2. In order for a time to be registered for a club standard, the person concerned MUST have worn a club vest for the event in question. This also applies for ‘second claim’ members of GBRC.
