Age-graded awards give every runner (male or female at any age) an equal chance to win a gold or silver medal. The Gold standard represents 65% of the World Masters Athletics (WMA) standard for each age. It's a tough but achievable performance. The equivalent marathon time for open men (age 23-35) is 3:12 and for open women (age 21-29) is 3:28.

The Silver standard is significantly easier to achieve at 55% of the WMA standard for each age. The equivalent marathon time for open men is 3:47 and for open women is 4:06. As hinted in these examples, age-graded scoring can be used to predict times at other race distances and compare results in your youth with your results in current races.
