Is there any tracking of age group - or at least Masters and Grandmaster FKTs? Would be a cool thing for those of us who aren't going to catch the Walmsley's of the world, but might have a shot at best over 40 or 50.

This question comes up all the time & my answer is always the same: I'm not going to track age group FKTs. This is still a tiny niche area, and there are just too many possibilities (supported, unsupported, self-supported, male, female, open, masters, oldest, youngest...!) And, it's hard enough verifying a person's claim, much less having to verify their age. If you want to compete at the age group level best to stick to regular races. This from a person about to turn 55! And we anciens (as the French say) can take inspiration from Sue Johnston's NH 4000ers Calendar Grid at age 50: runsuerun.blogspot.com/2016/12/calendar-year-grid.html
