I don't know about age categories in a VR, but in reality, most races have age categories based on 10 year increments.
I do have to say that age has very little to do with speed. I have had many a 70+ year young person blow me out of the water on races, whether they do it running or walking; and I have done the same to many 20-30 years my junior. When I talk with those who have experienced more life than I have, the one thing I always say is that I hope I am still able to walk distance and do races when I'm their age.
Age and speed do not go hand in hand necessarily. And when they do, we always say, "I don't have to get faster, I just have to get older." So just prove to us young whipper snappers that it has everything to do with doing the distance, not how long it takes.

I long to accomplish a great and noble task, but it is my chief duty to accomplish humble tasks as though they were great and noble. The world is moved along not only by the mighty shoves of its heroes but also by the aggregate of the tiny pushes of each honest worker.
- Helen Keller
Don't look at life as "you have to," view it as "you get to." It puts the fun back in things.
