How Races are Scored

Points will be assigned based on the maximum number of points for an event as shown in the table below. The winner gets the maximum number of points and everyone else getting a percentage of the maximum. For example, assume you say that the maximum number of points for an event is 1000. So Amy wins the race in 46:00. Kelly finished in 1:02:00. Amy’s score is 1000 because she won. Kelly’s score is 740.2. It is calculated by dividing the winner’s time (46 minutes) by her time (62 minutes) and then multiplying the results by the maximum number of points. So 46/62 x 1000 = 740.2

Each race will be scored separately based on the maximum number of points for that specific event. Total points are then calculated by adding the points from the 4 events with the highest number of points.

If you ran both Sunapee races, only 1 will count and it will be the race with the higher points.
