What is this calculator?

This calculator takes the performance of a runner of a given age group and gender, and for a specific distance provides the equivalent time and pace for a runner in a different age group and/or gender.

To do this, we take the runner's pace for a given distance, their age group, and their gender to find their position on the baseline. Then we take the position to find the equivalent time and pace for a runner in the requested age-group and gender.

The data used for the calculator are actual race results (empirical data), as opposed to theoretical formulas. This ensures that the results are accurate across a wide range of runners.

The difference between the pace of the runners compared can vary depending on the distance, the fitness level, age and gender.
