Sperrin Harriers Winter League Series 2016/17

The scoring system will be the same as last year, with final league placings being based on the three best performances.

Entrants need to enter at least three races to qualify for a league placing. There are no penalties for missing one or two races, however those runners who take part in four or five races will be entered into an additional category.

In accordance with UKA rules, we award one prize only per person, and therefore prizes will be awarded in the following order.

  1. Overall League placings, 1st, 2nd, and 3rd male and female. Perpetual Cups will be awarded to both the top male and female scorer.
  2. Age Category League placings, 1st & 2nd. If an age category runner wins an overall prize, 1st & 2nd are awarded to the next two in line. See Age Categories below. (Number of prizes awarded will be dependent on achieving our overall entries targets, and the entries in each age category)
  3. More than three races entered. There will be separate categories for those who complete four races and those who complete five races. A prize will be awarded to the highest place male and female in each category.

 

Scoring System – Overall Categories

  1. There will be separate Male and Female sections.
  2. After each race, the runners are ranked according to finish position in their Male or Female section.
  3. First home gets one point, the next home gets two points and so on
  4. At the end of all five races, the number of points from the three best performances are added together.
  5. The scores are then ranked from lowest to highest with the lowest score being the winner and so on.
  6. In the event of a tie then the head to head results will be considered. If still level then the person who has taken part in the most races will be considered. The judges’ decision will be final.
