Age graded placing:

Results for this year’s Snoqualmie Valley Cup will be calculated using the World Masters Athletics (WMA) age-grading tables. Age grading is a handicapping system intended to level the playing field based on age and gender. USATF LDR (USA Track and Field, Long Distance Running) is in full support of age grading and has worked to encourage its adoption nationwide.

WMA Age-grading calculator:
Age grading lets you compare your best efforts at different ages, revealing improvements that might not be so obvious otherwise. It allows you to race your friends or family, regardless of age. It allows you to set goals based on a new standard of accomplishment… and it might just re-energize your running.

Big Thanks to Lutz Kretzschmar for building the scoring app so our brains don’t catch fire trying to figure this all out!
