Rules

In the MAIN series, your best 15 races will score. There will be medals awarded to all athletes that complete 12 races or more. Every race in the series will be scored by the first runner gaining 100 points, the second 99 points, and so on down to 25th place (75 points); anyone finishing lower will also score 75 points. Relays scoring this year will be based on timings, we hope this will encourage attendance and a bit of competition. Armada 3k Series will feature with Bonus Points for attending 4 or more from 6 of series. The series will be divided into male and female age categories. You will be placed in the age category group relating to your age on 1st April 2018 and you will remain in that group all year.
