|RR10 LEAGUE SCORING RULES
These rules are applied to determine team and individual results for the RR10s,
in specific events and for the overall championship. They apply to the men's
and the ladies' competitions, which are completely independent of each other.
They came into effect for the 1998 season, and will apply until such time as
they are amended by the AGM.
RESULTS OF A SPECIFIC RACE
- A runner's finishing position will be recorded as the one corresponding
to the ticket they receive at the finishing line.
- Runners will not be given a finishing position in the event organised
by their own club.
- Men's teams for a club for a specific race are formed by taking the
finishing runners for that club in groups of five. The first five
finishers are the A team, the next five the B team, and so on for as
many complete groups of five as are available.
- Ladies' teams for a club for a specific race are formed by taking the
finishing runners for that club in groups of three. The first three
finishers are the A team, the next three the B team, and so on for as
many complete groups of three as are available.
- A team's score will be the sum of the individual finishing positions of
its runners, so lowest score wins.
- In the event of two teams getting the same score (as determined by (3)
above) the team with the best placed final team runner will be given the
higher position in the team competition. This will tend to give a slight
advantage to teams with strength in depth rather than those who depend
on one or two individuals. For example, if ladies team X had runners
finishing 1st, 3rd and 7th, and team Y had runners finishing 2nd, 4th and
5th, both would have a score of 11. Team Y would be the winners because
their third runner finished higher (5th) than team X's third runner (7th).
RESULTS OF THE OVERALL CHAMPIONSHIP
- A runner's score for the season is the sum of their best six finishing
- The runner with the lowest score is the winner.
- Runners with only five finishes will be ordered and ranked after those
with six finishes, and so on down to those with only one finish.
- Runners with equal scores will be listed as tied.
- After n races of the season, each runner's best n-1 races (up to the
maximum of six) will be considered when producing the league table.
This allows for runners from the organisers of the early races to be
represented fairly. So, after two races, the best single race will
be used. After three races, the best two, and so on up to the best
six from race seven onwards.
- A team's finishing position counts as its score for a particular event.
- Teams that did not have the required number of finishers will be
given a score of 100.
- The organising club(s) teams will be given a score of zero.
- Each team's points for all events will be summed to give its total for
- The club with the least points is the winner.
- Clubs with equal scores will be listed as tied.
