These races are ranked by a rating which represents their supposed PB potential. This figure is obtained by calculating the percentage of identifiable finishers who were able to achieve a new personal best time in the race. It is calculated over a three year average. The actual numbers displayed here adjusted figures and do not correspond exactly to the respective percentages (the adjustment has no impact on the rank for each race). For races where the route has been changed within the last three years (e.g. Trafford 10K), only data from the current course is included in the average.
