We maintain records of best road performances set anywhere by our members as well as those set in our own Championships races. Clearly this is not an easy exercise and so we are grateful to Arthur Johns for volunteering to compile these records on our behalf.  He does so by trawling through the Power of 10 website but even this has not been made easier by the website's decision to exclude performances in ARC licensed events. We in contrast do accept them.

If however you feel that you have set or broken a record over any of the above distances you can help Arthur considerably by letting him have the details. If he is happy with it then he will accept it for inclusion in our records. Remember though that you must have been a fully paid up member of the Club at the time of the race.

Ignoring the wisdom of the IAAF, we have chosen to use Chip and not Gun Times where applicable for these records because many of our runners start at the back of the field and would as a consequence be penalised unfairly.

We are also aware that courses may vary considerably in difficulty but as long as they are officially measured and are within the limits of 1 metre 'net' drop per kilometre and a separation of less than 50% between start and finish then we will accept them.
