SCORING AND POINTS
Runners only need to participate in one event to qualify for series overall standing.
The top 99 racers at each event will receive series points with the top finisher receiving 500 and decreasing by 5 points for each place thereafter. For instance, First place=500, Second Place=495, 3rd Place=490, 4th Place 485, etc. All other finishers will receive 5 points. DNF’s will receive 2 points.
In the event of a series tie, the series finale event will be the tie breaker. The runner with the best finish will win the tie. In the event that neither runner involved in a tie completes the tie breaker event, final standings will be decided based on the head-to-head finish of the last event in the series that both runners started.
