Are age category leaderboards fixed by age at the time of the activity?

This would seem to be a no-brainer, but I just wanted to check - I assume that if I get a time on a segment when I am in one particular age category (e.g. 45-54), then that attempt is forever linked to my age on that date, i.e. when I turn 55 I won't appear in the 55-64 category leaderboard for that segment based on an effort I made when I was younger?

  • Funny...7 days later and I was just thinking about this myself and did a search.

    I have a particular 11 mile segment (out of a 30 mile route) where I vacation every summer. Some of the dates of the segment activities go back to 2012. When I am looking at my age group (55-64), are the activities by the other guys completed when they were 7 years younger than the age group they so in now, or were they 55-64 at the time of the activity. My aging, yet sensitive ego wants to know:)

    This doesn't answer your questions, but adds another dimension to it...

  • This should be an easy question to answer - we just need to find someone who has trasitioned from one age category to another and get them to check which age leaderboard their PR on a segment appears in, where that PR was achieved before they moved to the older category..

    In my case I have Strava data going back to 2013, when I was 46. I'm now 52, so still in the 45-54 group. But there must be thousands of people who have data spanning two age catehories - can one of you check, please..? :-)

  • With a few runs at the same trail that date back to 2010, they would have occurred in my 45-54 yo category. I am now in the 55-64 category. If I filter the list for 45-54 the best of my efforts from those 2010 runs show up in the 45-54 category leaderboard. My PR for the segment is from the 55-64 catagory (10/2016) and is shown when I set the filter for 55-64 category.

    But I don't have an overall segment PR from when it was in the previous category, so I am not sure if it answers the question just yet.

    I am sure I ran the trail faster back in the day, but it was before I started saving the activity in any app like Strava.

    On the other hand, maybe it's a good thing that as far as the recorded activities are concerned the PR is from when I am older:)
