Series Entry / Requirements

Eligibility: Runners must finish at least 4 of the 5 available series races, all of which will be used to calculate final positions.

Scoring: 1st = 50pts, 2nd = 49pts, …, 49th = 2pts, 50th+ = 1pt. Positions will be determined on the basis of the highest cumulative score.

Accuracy: Cumulative scores will be calculated by automatically matching Name, Gender and Date of Birth with some additional manual validation. It is the responsibility of the participant to ensure the details they provide are consistent across races.

Categories: Categories will be determined using a participant's age on the 31st December of the calendar year in which the first race of the series takes place.

Grand Prix: Prizes will be awarded to the top three runners overall and the top runner in each category (V40/V50/V60/V70) for both males and females. In the event of a tie, the higher position will be awarded to the competitor that has attended more races. Where possible, we will endeavour to present series prizes at the last race of the series as soon as validated on the day.
