Category 1: Most Improved Team

Nominating your team in the Most Improved Team category will exclude your team from appearing in the Fastest Team and Participation category.

Individuals in this category will still be eligible in the Fastest Runner category.

By selecting this category your team wishes to compete for the Most Improved Team. At the end of each round, the best 5 scores in your team will go towards your round total.

Your most improved points are based on your genuine improvement. Improve by too much or by too little, you will see your points decrease. By not improving you will receive 5 points.

At the end of the program, the best 5 totals out of your 7 rounds will determine the team’s final position.

Category 2: Fastest Team/Individual

Nominating your team in the Fastest Team category will exclude your team from appearing in the Most Improved and Participation categories.

By selecting this category your team wishes to compete for the Fastest Team awards. After each round, the best 5 times in your team will be averaged and this time will appear in the fastest teams list.

We use a RFID timing system to record times. All participants receive a credit card sized RFID card that they retain throughout the series. You will use this RFID card to start and finish your time. If you lose your card, there will be a $5 replacement fee. Please be environmentally friendly and return your card at the end of the program.
