Geezer Pleezer Hall of Fame


The Geezer Pleezer 4-miler has been run at Carolina Friends School since 2001. I have amassed all the results since then and age-graded the finishers using the World Masters Athletics tables compiled by Alan Jones and incorporated into the RunScore software we use to score our races. The result is an “age-graded score” that we use to compare performances of runners of different ages and sexes. This “Hall of Fame” honors the runners who have attained a score of 70 or above. Admittedly, this is an arbitrary cutoff, but I have seen references that consider 70-and-above to include: Regional Class; National Class; and World Class. The table only includes the best performance for each runner and shows the year and age at that time. Many honorees have surpassed the cutoff score multiple times—the second “place” column shows where the runner would place if we included all performances.
