Last updated 10/04/18
- Individual Scoring:
- The winner of each division will be awarded 100 points and the last place finisher will be awarded 10 points. Points will be awarded to each finisher on a descending scale down to the minimum point value of 10. (Scale will be adjusted if more than 100 participants are in a given race.)
- Team Scoring:
- In ordered to be considered for team scoring, a club must have a minimum of three (3) athletes represented in a given age division – for boys and girls.
- Team scores may NOT be combined across genders or age divisions. For example:
- USATF Club #1 has three (3) runners in the 11-12 boys age division and two (2) runners in the 11-12 girls division. Their 11-12 boys are eligible for team scoring. Their 11-12 girls are not eligible for team scoring.
- USATF Club #2 has two (2) runners in 8 and under boys and two (2) runners in 8 and under girls. They also have three (3) runners in 17-18 young women. Only their 17-18 young women are eligible for for team scoring.
- Scoring will be divided into 5 age divisions (USATF see rule 304.5).
- A team will be composed of the first three (3) team members to cross the finish line. The finishing positions will be used to determine the team score.
- The teams with the three (3) lowest team scores will earn points for their club based on the point schedule in chart #1.
- Team scores for all age divisions, for boys and girls, will be calculated for an Overall Team Score.
Clubs will earn points toward their series score based on the number of athletes who participate and represent their team in each series meet.
Club points will be awarded based on the point schedule in chart #2.
