Want to know how your times stack up? Compare your best performances at different distances? This simple calculator uses the 2006 National Master's Association (formerly WAVA) data tables to allow you to both age-grade today's performances (for master's runners) and determine the fraction of world record pace you run for any distance from 60 meters to 200 km. You can also use these to compare your best performances at different distances. The larger the age-graded percentage score for any given event, the better you are at it.
These definitions are standard (if a bit arbitrary), and roughly predict to the scale of the races at which you can seriously compete for medals.
Once you've calculated a performance score, you will be given the opportunity to calculate equivalent times at other distances. Or, you can enter a different performance score and calculate the equivalent times at any distance you choose.
