Junior Running

SYtri Achievement Awards – running

We set up a junior achievement award system in 2017 for running and swimming. We hope the standards set will be encouraging and give you something to work towards.

The standards have been calculated using a similar age graded system to park run, based on a percentage of the best junior times in the world. The standards are graded as bronze, silver, gold and platinum – we hope that as many of you as possible will be able to achieve a bronze certificate.

We will issue certificates when you reach a particular run time for your age and gender. The Rate of Perceived Effort Chart below should help you in your training towards reaching the targets.
