Age Graded Results - 2018 Grand Prix Series presented by Piedmont Healthcare
- Age grading is a process used to compare race performances across different ages and genders. Computed as a percentage score, this value levels the playing field and allows you to track your performances over time, identify your best events, and set goals for future races. Age grading is calculated by using data tables produced by the World Association of Veteran Athletics to measure the fraction of your race time that is equivalent to the predicted all-time best for your age and sex. As an example, if you are a 52-year-old woman who has run a 5k road race in 25:16, and the predicted all-time best for a 52 year old female is 16:53, your age grade percent is 16:53 ÷ 25:16 = 66.8%.

- Please note: Grand Prix results encompass only current Atlanta Track Club members and use December 31, 2018 as the base date for participant ages (displayed as GP Age in tables below). Race day results and Grand Prix results can, and most often do, differ signifantly for the same event.
