(uses the latest WMA-approved tables, last updated in 2006 for race walking events, and accuracy confirmed)

PTC Relay Edition (Excel spreadsheet – custom adaptation of the above – updated September 2014)
(designed specifically for the Portland to Coast relay, but could be easily adapted for age grading any relay race)
