The Great For You concept explained

For those interested in comparing their Great Run performance with others, finish time doesn’t tell the whole story. Our clever fitness boffins have designed an algorithm that allows you to benchmark yourself against others in a more fair way, taking age, gender, and course elevation into consideration.

We set ourselves the challenge and analysed over 4 million Great Run event finishes since the first Great North Run in 1981. The result is the GREAT FOR YOU score and grading system.

Finishers can now compare their performance against others from the same Great Run event, and also against themselves or others in different events across the Great Run series.

Finishers will receive a score out of 1000 and a coloured grade – one of Gold, Silver, Bronze, Green, Blue.

Your Great For You Score and Grade

Blue

Blue
For many, finish time is not the primary objective. The aim to complete the event, run with friends, get off the couch, raise money for charity, and any and every other reason. You’re GREAT.

Green

Green
For those perhaps just starting out (or starting again) in their running, or simply enjoying running at your own pace. You’ll likely have ran the whole course without a break so well done and enjoy!

Bronze

Bronze
Focused runners. You’re likely to run regularly or have trained for this event.

Silver

Silver
You’re a serious contender. Competitive club runners and those who train to compete regularly will feature in this grade.

Gold

Gold
The best of the best. If you’re in this category you’re mixing it with World and Olympic Champions. Mo Farah watch out!

GREAT FOR YOU SCORE
Your score factors in your gender, age, and the event distance, with a unique weighting added to account for the specific route difficulty and generates a score out of 1000.

GREAT FOR YOU GRADE
Your grade will place you within a ‘class’ from Turquoise, Green, Bronze, Silver, and ultimately Gold.

 

Your Score and Grade are displayed in your GREAT FOR YOU performance badge which you can share on Facebook to celebrate your Great Run with friends. It’s a quick and easy way to judge your level of performance with others.
