8)    Points for the races will be awarded in each “length” race based on finishing time compared to the 30th percentile athlete in that course. 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/gender grades. In the event of less than five people in the course - points will be based on the winners time (eg winner will get 100 points).

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 100 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.
