Standards Scheme

The WAC Standards Scheme provides a challenge against which runners can measure themselves and their performances. All paid up members are eligible for the award of Standards Certificates annually and these will be recognised as hallmarks of all round running ability, because aspirants have to reach a standard at races chosen from three different distance groups in one year.

There are five classes of certificate and Badge, and they are available for male and female runners, in open and veteran age classes.


These are A5 size (210 x 149mm), printed on light card and suitable for framing. The colours are consistent for the classes throughout the age categories.

Red - Bronze Award
Orange Silver Award
Green Gold Award
Blue Diamond Award
Silver Platinum Award

The year of Issue will be displayed on the Certificates. The Certificates/Awards will be a one off issue and the recipient will become a bronze class runner and so on depending on the standard he or she has achieved.

Application forms will be made available and all members will be encouraged to participate.
