Competition Info

The event will incorporate five individual national events between Sunday 29th July and Friday 3rd August 2018 with one rest / activity day.

For all classes, points will be awarded for each day’s result using the following formula.

Runner's score = 1000 + 200 x (MT-RT)/ST

MT is the mean of the top 90% of each course (excluding n/c, disq, dnf, etc)
RT is the runner's time
ST is Standard Deviation
