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.
Team points are allocated for improvement and bonus points are allocated for regular participation.
The first run establishes each person’s base time performance handicap time.
During runs 2 through to 7, team points are scored by adding the 5 best individual scores together each fortnight. This determines your Weekly Score. Your Series Score is determined by your team’s best 5 Weekly Scores.
Most improved (click here for category definition)
Points are awarded on a scale of 0 to 40, depending on your improvement over your previous best performance.
Fastest Team (click here for category definition)
Fastest Teams will no longer receive points. Each round, you are just aiming for your fastest time.
Participant (click here for category definition)
Points are awarded to participants for attending consecutively.
- Individuals will be rewarded points every consecutive week participated.
- At the end of each round, the best 5 scores in the team will go towards the round total.
- At the end of the program, the best 5 rounds will go towards the final result.
To be eligible in the Fastest Runner categories, you must complete 6 out of the 7 runs to qualify and be entered into the Fastest or Most Improved category. An average is then calculated from your best 6 runs.
The best result for each participant comes when you start at a reasonable rate (not deliberately slow) as the scores will reflect your performance. If your improvement is too dramatic or extraordinary, you will lose points. Please be honest with your effort – after all, it is your health that’ll be the real winner!
