The list of performances includes any performance that achieves a first three finish overall or in a category in any timed athletics event.
For Club Road Records the race needs to have a UKA Licence. A requirement of UKA Rules and the licensing process is that all road races over specific distances held in the UK must have their distance measured by a UKA accredited course measurer.
The UKA Rules also state that for records purposes the start and finish points of a course, measured along a theoretical straight line between them, shall not be further apart than 50% of the race distance and the overall decrease in elevation between the start and finish shall not exceed 1:1000, i.e. 1m per km (0.1%).
The only races that do not need a certificate of measurement are those which do not advertise a distance (e.g. a 6 hour race), or those which are multi-terrain and therefore cannot be guaranteed to be accurate. Records set at such races will be termed Club Bests.
