Note: the step-by-step guide will take some time to load on a slow connection!

The Rules

  • Your mark is the best of your last four times up to two years old
  • Your PB is your best ever and is therefore never slower than, but can be faster than, your mark
  • Your start is the slowest mark minus your mark (the faster you are, the smaller your mark and the later you start)
  • The first twenty scoring runners to finish get twenty down to one scores points
  • You need two runs before you can score other than for running and beating mark
  • Anyone completing the course gets a run point
  • Anyone who beats their mark gets a mark point
  • The highest 9 scores count towards the total
  • The time of anyone finishing more than a minute behind anyone else, and anyone finishing after them, will not be used to compute their mark. They will still get points but it means that a string of unreasonably slow runs won’t give someone an easy mark. Contact Garry in the event of long-term injury affecting your times so this can be amended
  • Numbers in last month’s results reflect scores, marks and PBs as of last month whereas the overall and next month start lists reflect current values
