The scoring system uses BOF ranking points to compare different courses. It doesn’t matter which course you run. The system works as follows:

  • Any ESOC member who successfully completes a course that gets allocated BOF ranking points will be automatically scored.
  • There will be 4 categories: Open Men, Open Women, Veteran Men, Veteran Women.
  • For the Open categories, the person with the highest ranking points scores 20, the second 19, etc.
  • For the Veteran categories, the ranking points are converted to times in an average race and then scaled by the World Masters Athletics Association age-graded relative running speeds for 5km. Fastest scores 20 points, the second 19, etc.
  • Your best 4 scores count.
  • In the event of a tie, the 5th, 6th, etc score is taken into account (if available). Otherwise, head to head results are taken into account (greatest number of wins).
