New Stuff for Runners

With all the focus lately on the USA Triathlon National Challenge Competition, it's been easy to forget about all those runners out there still putting in the miles and still racing throughout the winter. My apologies to all. Blame the triathletes and their infernal competition.

But I haven't really forgotten, no I haven't. To prove it, some New Stuff has just been added to the Running Races section of Racetracker.

When viewing your Single Race results under Running you will now see some additional Race Pace data. The World Record times and paces for 5k, 10k, half-marathon and marathon distances are now shown in greater detail.

See meters per second (which was always there) plus kilometers per hour and time per kilometer. There is also now the most up-to-date info on who holds the World Record for each of those distances, plus when and where the record was set. This info also links directly to the relevant Wikipedia page for each distance. You'll see the appropriate record for your gender only.

For those who race in miles, not kilometers... help is on the way. Since international records are kept mainly in metric distances, those were completed first. Conversions to ye olde Englishe units are on the Big To Do List.
