8)    Points for the races will be awarded in each “length” (gender) race based on finishing time of the winner (Male & Female). That person will get 100 points everyone else’s points will be based as a fraction percentage of that. The points earnt are the same for the age grades.

9)    If a person DNF’s (eg flat tyre; injury etc) or is DSQ’d they will get 0 points for that event.

10)                       If a person fails to complete the correct number of laps (in running, cycling or swimming) this will count as a DSQ with zero points – unless they do more than required – points will still then count.

11)   Any decision on DSQ’s will be made by the race director or a sub-committee and the competitor will be notified by email or phone or in person if they are to be DSQ’d – with the right of appeal.

12)   A person who is an official at an event will be awarded 80 points for that event (they select the course/length they want it to be used for.) This is only for one event in the season.

A full copy of these rules etc will be posted on the club website and facebook page.
