Age Grade Calculator
The age-grade percentage is a method used to identify the quality of a performance adjusted for gender, age, and distance. An age grading 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 the these factors to provide a percentage result. The higher the percentage result, the better the performance. Age gradings are calculated with reference to tables (maintained by Alan Jones here) compiled that consider a range of performances by different types of athletes.
