The Molvar Conversion tables were devised by John Molvar
from many years of following track results.
They are perhaps the simplest way of equating performances.

One simply multiples the event time by the conversion factor.
To get the "equivalent" performance of the new event.


Molvar's conversions:
 
100 - 200  0.5000
200-400 0.455
400-800 .427
600y -880 .635
1000y 880 .85
800-1000 .768
