Series Points – How Are They Calculated?
Points are awarded to every finisher in each race in the series. Even if you entered on a single race ticket, you will still receive series points if you finish. Points are based on the inverse of your placing (which, in turn, is based on your NET TIME – see above). So, if there are 50 male finishers in the 10km run then the first place finisher will receive 50 points, 10th place will receive 40 points and last place will receive 1 point. Our Series Challenge calculates points by gender and by age division so you can chart your progress throughout the series amongst your gender group and your age group.
- In order to calculate your series points, we match your results based on your name, gender and date of birth. If you enter each event as a single race entrant, you must be careful to ensure these details are the same for each entry or you may miss out. We are not responsible for errors in your data entry.
- In the case of a tie for any of the major merit prizes, the head-to-head record between those people will be used to separate them. If the tie still cannot be broken, the person with the fastest recorded time throughout the series will be deemed the winner.
