New! Rate A Race Function

Did you race this weekend? Then give it a score on our new rating system...


Posted: 31 August 2004

Did you race this weekend? Then give it a score on our new, integrated rating system...

Find the race by searching backwards on our event search page, and your ratings will be carried forward from year to year as a permanent record.

Just scroll to the bottom of the race listing to add a rating or see a rating summary [click 'See all comments and ratings' for full details]. Meanwhile, you can enjoy some ratings from the system's first weekend right here:

Happy rating!


Rate a Race: tell us what you think!

What you like about it; what irks you; and what you'd love to see added to it... We'd love to hear your comments on this forum thread


A few notes

If you've scrolled this far, allow us to tell you a little more...

  • We've imported over 3000 ratings from the Races of the Year surveys we ran in 2003 and 2004
  • Click a person's name, and you can see all their ratings!
  • A few ratings weren't imported, because we had no existing race listing for them (one current limitation)
  • Some imported ratings have no runner name, because we were unable to match them to an RW member. This won't happen for future ratings
  • Sub-events can't currently be rated independently of main events

Going forward

You can expect...

  • Latest ratings across all races at a glance
  • Top-rated races of last weekend/next weekend
  • Guides to the UK's most scenic / PB-friendly / Beginner-friendly races
  • 'Tell us a new race' - want to rate a race we haven't listed? Point us to its details

And on our wishlist

  • Rate foreign races (high time we listed key overseas events)
  • Search by rating (eg show the most beginner-friendly races in the North)
  • And a few secret things...
