HOW WE SCORE: 

All meets have a team competition as well as an individual competition. **Meaning, individuals can still compete regardless if their school has enough runners to qualify as a team.**  

  • For the team competition: Your school must have at least 3 runners per division per gender to qualify.  
    • The team winner is determined by adding up the top 3 place finishers from the school and the lowest total number wins.  
    • In the case of a tie, we use the 4th runner from the team to break the tie.  
    • For example: School A has the 1st, 10th and 20th finisher and School B has the 8th, 11th and 12th finisher.  Both schools have 31 points.  School A did not have a 4th runner and School B had a 4th runner finish 25th.  In this scenario, School B would be the team winner.
  • For the individual competition: We award medals to the top runners in each gender division.
    • For every 5 runners, there is a medal place awarded.  
    • For example, if there are 25 runners total in a race, there are 5 medals awarded to the top 5 finishers in that gender division.
