Fetch Race Standards is a challenge that encourages runners to improve their performances across a variety
of distances. To gain a standard, you need to complete races at any three distances during the year.
Each of your times is converted into a WAVA score, and measured using the table below.
For example, to become an Elk, you need three scores that are in excess of 65%.
In amongst the animals there are some more serious-sounding markers to aim for e.g. Gold Standard involves getting three scores of 80 or more.
You might notice that other people have different time targets. This is because WAVA is a very clever system that takes your age and
gender into account when calculating your scores, so be prepared to get completely owned by someone twice your age, or by someone of the opposite
you-know... *whistles* ... thing.
Feel free to play with the WAVA Calculator,
and look at how your current PB's stack up in WAVA terms.
You need to log in
and build your Race Portfolio to see what standard you can achieve.
