Men’s Club Records

Rules for BPs

The time must be an official time, it must have been set in a race, on a certified course, at a time when you were a paid-up Abbey Runner, and there must be some documentary evidence sufficient to satisfy our standards committee.

Non-qualifying performances

Certain performances do not qualify. In particular:

A time set on a “downhill” course, which is defined by the IAAF as one where the overall decrease in elevation between the start and finish exceeds 1m per Km, does not qualify as a record under IAAF rules (see IAAF, Competition Rules 2008, Rule 260.28(c)). Abbey adopts this rule.

Point-to-point races do not qualify as records. These are defined as races where the start and finish points, measured along a theoretical straight line between them, are further apart than 50% of the race distance (Competition Rules 2008, Rule 260.28(b))

Performances set in time trials do not qualify because they are, by definition, not races

Several notable non-qualifying performances are listed below alongside the BPs for information and comparison “(d) ” in front of a time denotes a “downhill” course not complying with Rule 260.28(c); “(p)” denotes a point-to-point course not complying with Rule 260.28(b)).

Updating

Please inform John Ward of any errors or omissions, so the records can be kept up to date.
