ABOUT THE ARRS
The Association of Road Racing Statisticians (ARRS) is an independent, non-profit organization that collects, analyses,
and publishes results and statistics regarding elite distance running at distances 3000m and longer.

THE FUTURE OF THE ARRS
Ken Young's preoccupation with the collection of distance running data and its analysis
stretched back many years before the formation of ARRS in 2003.
His dedication over the fifteen years from 2003 did much to establish the ARRS organisation and its global network of correspondents.
Most rankings may be found at more.arrs.run. These include annual and all-time rankings for any country and year for most standard distances.
...Bolder Boulder 10K
...Cherry Blossom 10 mile
...Harold & Louise Tinsley
...Andy Carr/Milton High
...Six Rivers Running Club
...Huntsville Track Club
Road performances are classified as "record quality", "statistically valid", or "statistically invalid" based on the start/finish separation and the net drop of the course.
.....Start/finish separation is less than 30% of the race distance and the net drop is less than 1.0 m/km
Statistically Valid (suffix "a")
.....The net drop is less than 5.0 m/km and the net effect of tailwind and/or drop does not exceed 5 sec/km
Statistically Invalid (suffix "x")
.....The net drop is 5.0 m/km or more
.....The course has been shown to have been short on remeasurement
.....The course is suspect based on an analysis of the race time bias that exceeds 5 sec/km faster than expected (-5.0 sec/km)
Only record quality performances are included in national and world road record lists. Record quality and statistically valid performances are included in rankings lists.
Multi-part names such as "van der Weijde" may appear in computer generated lists and elsewhere with the spaces removed, i.e., "vanderWeijde." This has been done for the purposes of efficiency in entering performances into the database.
