The winner of a race receives 100 points. Every other racer receives points based on their time compared to the winner’s.
For example, Amy wins the race in 46:00. Kelly finished in 1:02:00. Amy’s score is 100 because she won. Kelly’s score is 74.2. It is calculated by dividing the winner’s time (46 minutes) by her time (62 minutes) and then multiplying the results by 100. So 46/62 x 100 = 74.2
Points are calculated separately for men and women. Men use the men’s winning time, and women use the women’s winning time to calculate points.
Your total score is the sum of your four highest race scores. If you run all five races, your lowest scoring race is dropped. You are counted as a Series participant and your score will make you eligible for awards if you complete at least four races in the Series.
