Series Points System:
The cumulative results from Race 1, 2, 3 & 4 will contribute to the overall series awards. Points are allocated based on an athlete’s finishing position in their category.
The event offers categories including 20-min Adults, 10-min Adults, 10-min Juniors & 5-min Mini-Kids. Each category receives equal points. The winner of each category obtains 50 points, followed by descending points for subsequent places. The minimum points for completing a race are 20. In case of a tie, the athlete with a greater distance covered over the series takes precedence. If tied on points and distance, the athlete with the lower aggregate time secures the higher position. If the tie persists, both athletes share the standing.
For instance: Athlete A wins all 4 races, covers an aggregate distance of 20km, and earns 200 points. Athlete B also wins 4 races, covers an aggregate distance of 10km, and earns 200 points. Athlete A ranks higher due to the greater distance covered.
Male and female series winners across various categories will be celebrated at the end-of-series race on Friday, 29 September 2023.
Prepare for a thrilling series of races, stay updated on event details, and embark on a rewarding journey of achievement!
