jdarunIs there a definitive description of how this works anywhere? Based on various web pages I have a general idea, but it seems a bit coy about the actual numbers involved. I don't know if this is deliberate or just because I've not found the right reading material
Recently I paced someone at a parkrun and was about 5 mins slower than usual. My vSSS was about 10, thus I suspect that each point in vSSS represents about 30s in a 5k, and assume it would also be 1min for a 10k etc (at least, around the 20 min parkrun/40 min 10k pace, if that matters). Does this fit with other peoples' experiences? I also guess that the SSS ratings are scored the same way, ie if two 5k races have SSS scores of 1 and 2 then the average of runners who do both would be about 30s slower for the second one (ignoring any changes in their handicaps in the meantime of course).

Surrey PhilI've never figured out how the system works as there are so many factors taken into account. The weather, the terrain, the winner's time, etc. I've often finished a race thinking that my handicap must have gone up when it has actually gone down.
