This series features series scoring and awards for age group and overall series winners! Here's how the scoring works:
At each race the overall winners (male and female) will be assigned 1,000 points. All other athletes' points will be calculated by this formula: (winning time/your time)*1,000. That is to say, we'll divide the winning time by your time and then multiply by 1000.
For those non-math majors out there, here's an example: Will B. Goodbiker wins Lake Mills with a time of 60 minutes on the nose. Will gets 1,000 points. Bob A. Fastrunner comes in second with a time of 61 minutes on the nose. We would take (60 minutes/61 minutes)*1,000 = 983.6, so Bob gets 983.6 points. We'll tally those points up for 4 of the 6 races in the series, and the person with the most overall points wins.
Series Awards/Age Divisions
We've been working hard to make sure that we've got some awesome awards for both the overall and division winners in our series! The overall series will have the same divisions as the individual races. They are Male/Female 19 & under, 20-24, 25-29, 30-34, 35-39, 40-44, 45-49, 50-54, 55-59, 60-64, 65-69, 70 & above, Athena/Clydesdale.
