The age grade calculator is a method used to identify the quality of a performance adjusted for gender, age, and distance.
It is a great way of comparing your own performances across various distances and also against the performances of other runners as it allows for adjustment to these factors to provide a percentage result. The higher the percentage result, the better the performance.
