The TRC Global Rankings are a measure of an individual’s level of achievement over a rolling threeyear period.
They are based not on prize money the individuals’ representatives have won but on the quality of the performances those runners have put up in Group and Graded races. There are about 1,450 qualifying races around the world every year.
