Easy to do: All you need is a simple calculator, together with your age on the day of the race.
Remember: Calculations must always be converted into seconds before your calculation can begin.
For Example: 5 minutes and 2 seconds must be converted to seconds
i.e.: 5 x 60 = 300 then you must add the seconds
i.e.: total from before is 300 + 2 = 302 seconds (and you’re off!! – Good Luck!!)
Please use the guide below to make your calculation.
Age Related Formula
1. Minutes multiplied by 60 then add the seconds
2. Multiply by the A.R.F (Age Related Factor – which you will get from the table.)
3. Divide by 60 which gives you the following:-
4. The figure before the point will give you your age related minutes
5. All the figures after the point you must use to do the calculation to obtain your age related seconds:-
6. 60 x 0 point – And then use the figures from (b) above here
7. Then press the percentage button on your calculator. The first two digits will be your Age Related seconds.
Follow this example from the above 1 to 4 instructions
The lovely Carmel runs a 10 mile race in 67.26 when she is 42 years old.
67 x 60 + 26 = 4046 (seconds)
Multiply 4046 by 0.9473 (A.R.F. from the table)
Divide by 60 = 63.879596
a) 63 being her new time in minutes
b) 0.879596 being the figures to use next (in 4)
60 x 0.879596 % = 0.5277576
Carmel’s Age Related Time is an impressive 63.52
The Ladies and Men’s A.R.F. Table will be available from the Club on Monday evenings or by request
from either Kath Hoyer or Dave Waywell so you can make your own calculation
