Series Rules & Standings

SCORING

In order to be eligible for series awards you must complete at least 5 “events.” An “event” is one of the 6 events listed or at least 4 hours of certified volunteer trail work in 2019 at any of the participating conservation areas. ie. you are still eligible for the series if you only finish 4 of the trail races but also complete a day (4 hours) of trail work in 2019 before 31 October.

Special Note: Due to the cancellation of one race, scoring in the 2019 series is adjusted to require completion of only 4 events or 3 events plus one day of trail work.

Your series score will be assessed on the basis of your placement by age and gender category as determined in each race. If you are first in your age and gender group you score 1. Second place scores 2. etc. We add your 5 best scores across the series and the lowest total wins.

For example, if you come second in your age and gender group in 2 races and third in 3 races you would score 2 x 2 = 4 plus 3 x 3 = 9. And 4 + 9 = 13 for your total score. Note, you automatically score a 1 for doing a day of trail work. But only one day of trail work will be included in your series score – so you cannot win by doing 5 days of trail work! Your day of trail work must be recorded by the relevant conservation organization.
