How does it work?

The system is based around your 10K ‘base time’. Your initial ‘base time’ is your fastest 10K time for Striders in the period 01/09/2020 to 12/03/2022.
If you better your 10K ‘base time’ it will immediately be adjusted to reflect this new quicker time (your ‘base time’ can improve from any 10K race, not just Owen Trophy 10Ks).
If you haven’t run a 10K for Striders since 01/09/2020 then you won’t initially have a base time and so you won’t have target times. However, for 2022, due to the lack of races during the Coronavirus pandemic, if you have run any parkruns since 01/09/2020, we will use your best parkrun time and multiply that by 2.08 to give you a base 10k time.

Using that ‘base time’ we apply a standard factor to each race to give you a ‘target’ time and a ‘bonus target’ time for each race. (The ‘bonus target’ is simply the ‘target’ multiplied by 0.99 ). These ‘target’ factors are calculated by looking at previous results for Striders in these particular races and comparing these to their previous ‘base times’ : in this way the difficulty of the course is factored in to your target times.

If all this seems a bit confusing then check the examples at the bottom of this page.

Points scoring :

  • 20 points for a completed race
  • 1 point for finishing quicker than your personalised ‘target’ time
  • 1 point for finishing quicker than your personalised ‘bonus target’ time
  • 1 point for finishing quicker than your time for the same race last season (due to Coronavirus, and lack of recent racing, this point will be omitted for the 2022 Owen Trophy)
  • 1 point for completing a marathon
  • 1 point for bettering your previous year’s Road Ranking time (10K, 10 miles, half, marathon) or your 7 miles/5K road for Elmore/Wimbledon (due to Coronavirus, and lack of recent racing, this point will be omitted for the 2022 Owen Trophy)

It’s your 6 best scores out of the 10 races listed below. Only your best marathon and half marathon score – you don’t score for multiples of these events.

  1. Wimbledon 5k – 13 March. Target factor 0.49 Bonus target factor 0.4851
  2. Sutton 10K – 15th May. 1.0197   1.0095
  3. Dorking 10 – 12th June. 1.76   1.7424
  4. (Ranelagh) Richmond 10K (organised by Ranelagh Harriers) – 26th June.  1.015   1.00485
  5. Elmore 7 – 16th July.  1.20   1.188
  6. Elmbridge 10K – 24th July.  1.015   1.00485
  7. Croydon Half – cancelled for 2022. Awaiting confirmation whether a different race will be added
  8. Croydon 10K – 23rd October (tbc).  1.0175   1.0073
  9. Any one Marathon – run between 1st November 2021 to 31st October 2022 ** 5.0   4.95
  10. Any one Half Marathon (not including Croydon Half) – run between 1st November 2021 to 31st October 2022 ** 2.25   2.2275

** NB: for your half and full marathon targets the time is based on your initial ‘base time’ of the Owen season.

** NB: since the 2018/19 season, the marathon and half marathon qualifying period has been shortened to 11 months, and each year going forwards the qualifying period will run from 1 November to 31 October each year.

Examples :

runner A’s ‘base time’ is 45.00
‘target’ time for Sutton is 45.53 (45.00 * 1.0197)
‘bonus target’ time is 45.26 (45.00 * 1.0095),
For their best half marathon their ‘target’ time would be 1.41.15 (45.00 * 2.25)
and the ‘bonus target’ time would be 1.40.14 (45.00 * 2.2275)

If runner B’s ‘base time’ is 55.00
‘target’ time for Sutton is 56.05
‘bonus target’ time is 55.31,
For their best half marathon their ‘target’ time would be 2.03.45
and the ‘bonus target’ time would be 2.02.31
