How is the winning team determined?
Races are scored by assigning a point value for the place a runner finishes in.
If a runner finishes first, he/she will earn 1 point. Finishing 55th would earn 55 points.
The lowest score wins. A perfect score is 15 points, with the top five runners occupying the first five finishing positions.
1st: 1 pt
2nd: 2 pts
3rd: 3 pts
4th: 4 pts
5th: 5 pts
Total of 15 points
While only the top 5 runners “score” for their team, the sixth and seventh placed runners also receive a score. Their points can be valuable since they may increase the score of an opposing team by placing in front of that team’s top five runners. The score of the sixth and seventh runners might also be used for tie breaking.
In the event of a tie between two or more teams, the place of the sixth place runners are compared. If only one team has a sixth runner then that team wins. If all teams have only five runners, then the score of the top 4 runners is used.
Should a team come up short of 5 members on race day, they can still participate, however, the missing members will earn the maximum points for the race (equivalent to the last pace finisher).
