INDIVIDUAL SERIES POINTS SYSTEM
The 4-race series will have a points system which will count towards the overall series awards. Points are calculated based on the athlete’s finish position in their category.
As our adult races offer several distances (10K, 5K & 2.5K), points will be equally allocated for each distance. The winner in each category will receive 50 points, followed by 49 points for 2nd place, 48 for 3rd place, 47 points for 4th place and so on. Minimum points for completing a race is 20. In the event of a tie, the athlete with higher distance covered over the series will be the winner. If they are tied on points and distance, then the athlete with the lowest aggregate time will be placed higher. In the event athletes cannot be separated by points, distance and time, then both will be placed jointly in the standings.
For example: Athlete A, wins all 4 races in 10K and obtains 200 points. Athlete B wins all 4 races in 5K and obtains 200 points. In this case, Athlete A will be placed higher than Athlete B in the overall standings.
Male and female series winners will receive prizes which will be presented after the end-of-season race.
