Providing Age-Graded Awards

Haskell Murray Headshot.jpgAs we age, most of us slow down. To keep older runners in the mix for awards, many races have added a masters category for 40+ year-old runners. Some races have added a grandmasters category for 50+ year-old runners. Races also tend to give a plethora of age-group awards. I propose that race directors consider moving away from these categories—which favor those in the early years of the grouping and disfavor those in competitive age groups—and instead provide age-graded awards.
