PR: Personal record or personal best time for a specific distance or race. If you run several 5k’s the race with your fastest finishing time is you 5k PR.
Note: Many races have several categories in which runners can win awards. These include Overall Male, Overall Female (includes all runners under the age of 40), Overall Masters Male, Overall Masters Female (includes all runners over 40), and Male and Female Age Awards (are separated by sex and year age groups ie., females 20 – 24). Typically overall winners are awarded first, then age group awards are decided. If one of the overall female winners is 35 (wins either 1st, 2nd, or 3rd, overall), then the female runner with the next best time who is between the age o f 35 – 39 (if that is the age group) would place 1st in the 35 – 39 age group category.
