Why do they still adhere to the "race age is the age you will be on December 31 of the event year" method? That confuses people and obviously it confuses USAT too. Why not just go with the method of "Race age is determined by the year you were born." How easy would that be?
For events in 2010, if you were born in:
- 1970 your age is 40
- 1971 your age is 39
- 1972 your age is 38
Does that make sense or am I missing something???
