The #RunningTimes #2013RunnersoftheYear

The Running Times Runners of the Year rankings take into account results from all distances on the track and roads from 3,000m to the marathon. Winning or placing highly in the year’s most competitive races is rewarded by the rankings, which place the greatest weight on races with the deepest fields. We then factor in how the runners fared in head-to-head matchups with other top-ranked runners, and, finally, consider how consistent the runner was based on his or her average weekly competitive level, calculated as point exchanges based on who beats whom in that week’s races. Times are not considered in this calculation, so a fast time run solo wins very few points—you have to face competition to be ranked as a racer.
