These are all "10 Round Numbers" that a common-or-garden female
club runner should be able to hit at some stage in their career. Rather than go with ranking, or points, or multiple tables, or whatever, this thread is primarily about hitting these targets, and a bit of comment on what it took for you to hit them.
Yeh probably a good idea if it gets more women trying the shorter distances.
The marathon target here is certainly far far softer for women than the respective target is for men. The 400 target would also be softer, with a 59 for a man roughly equivalent to a 66 for a woman.
The 800m, 5k and 10k are obviously harder for women though so that balances it out. Still though, that 800 target is easy and most people should pick off that at least.
EDIT: I misread the marathon target here to be 3hrs40. Scratch what I said above so about that.
