The Randonneur 5000 award is a multi-season award for which riders must complete the following rides within any continuous four season period:
· a Super Randonneur series (200 km, 300 km, 400 km and 600 km rides in one season);
· a Fleche Velocio (such as the Fleche Opperman);
· a 1000 km ride;
· a Paris-Brest-Paris 1200 km ride; and

· 950 km of other Brevets des Randonneurs Mondiaux events (200 km or greater),making a total of not less than 5000 km of homologated rides.

The Randonneur 5000 (as at the end of the 2008 season) has been award 1432 times since 1961; 127 times to 102 women and 1305 times to 1088 men. Two women (Deirdre Arscott and Nicole Chabirand) have each received it 6 times while Jean-Claude Chabirand has achieved the award 8 times!

2008 was a year where for the first time more than 100 recipients received the award in one year (130) and the first time that Bulgarian and Japanese randonneurs appeared in the awards list.

International Super Randonneur
Complete each brevet of a super randonneur series (200km, 300, 400km and 600km) in a different country, no time limit. Any rider can claim the ISR, a sew-on cloth badge. Longer rides can be substituted for shorter, completing rides on different continents is recognised and backdated claims are allowed. There is no 'exclusion requirement' i.e. not using the same rides for other awards.  Four Australians have collected five of the 80 odd ISRs awarded since 1989. Administered by Audax UK for LRM, award details can be found at International Super Randonneur.

Super Randonneur (Audax Club Parisien)
200 km, 300 km, 400 km and 600 km rides in one season. No longer-for-shorter substitutions.

This award recognises a minimum of 25,000 km in lifetime riding achievements. No time limit applies. Awards will be given for:

  • 25,000 km
  • 50,000 km
  • 75,000 km
  • 100,000 km
  • 125,000 km
  • 150,000 km
  • 175,000 km 
  • 200,000 km

Only the nominal distance of a completed ride counts towards the cumulative distance. As these awards recognise total riding achievement, all brevet types (with the exception of Brevet Raid) are accepted.

In recognition of a lifetime of randonneuring achievements, up to 50% of the kilometres claimed may have been ridden overseas as part of events homologated or recognised by RM, ACP or UAF affiliated clubs.

Riders should apply for the award distance that is currently applicable. An additional 25,000 km of homologated rides is required to apply for the next level.

Note: the onus is on the rider to prove their lifetime tally. In some cases, a rider's brevet history may go back before there were records kept by Audax Australia.

Recipients

 

ultra_randonneur

In recognition of outstanding ultra randonneuring achievements over time and distance, up to 25 of the 50 required rides may have been ridden overseas as part of events homologated or recognised by RM, ACP or UAF affiliated clubs.

Recipients

Notes:
