We are still working out some of the details but we wanted to add another fun element to local races and to help encourage participation. This is meant to be fun and we hope everyone enjoys it, and its FREE.
Since not everyone can or wants to do 9 mile or 17 mile solo races we figured we would break it down like this. We want to encourage everyone to do the longer courses if they can but we also want to reward the shorter courses as well, so everyone who races short or long will get a chance to earn points. This is not a separate point system though, its all one. We just don’t want to see anyone jumping down to the short course just for the points though 🙂
Men’s and Ladies divisions. We are going to keep it simple Men’s is 14′ and under and Ladies is 12’6 and under.
Long course: Short Course :
1st- 10 points 1st- 5 points
2nd- 9 points 2nd- 4 points
3rd- 8 points 3rd- 3 points
4th- 7 points 4th- 2 points
5th- 6 points All other places – 1 point for attendance.
6th -5 points
7th- 4 points
8th- 3 points
All other places – 2 points for attendance.
