The explanation of how the CC will be scored follows below.
Each race will be entered into Race Master Software and the age grading system used to produce the final club member results.
This means if you win the race only running at 65% of your age grading performance and someone from an older age group performs at 75% of their ability then they will probably finish above you irrespective of where they finished in the race.
Points are awarded from 10 for 1st place to 1 for last and every subsequent place.
Time bonus points will also be awarded depending on the race distance and terrain. For instance a normal on road 10k will receive the following time bonus points for male competitors 5 for under 40 mins 3 for under 50 mins and 1 for under 60 mins and for female competitors 5 for under 50 mins 3 for under 60 mins and 1 for under 70 mins. The other qualifying events will be looked at on a winning time basis and adjusted accordingly; if past results can be found then these will be used to gauge the bonus point system.
The race bonus points are adjusted every year depending on first and last male/female times. This allows for changes in course, weather conditions and will make a fairer system.
