We have been thinking about this for a while and we have finally decided to do it, a new addition to the Mike Carney Toyota Trail Run Series 2021:  A series points system!

This means each event you attend and every minute you run will count towards your points for the series. It doesn’t matter if you are in it to win it or if you are a weekend warrior. The more events you attend and the faster you are, the more points you will get.

At the end of the Mike Carney Toyota Trail Run Series we are going to award the Overall Series Top 3 male and female winners as well as the overall first place winners in the age groups. There will be some fantastic prizes for the series winners. Watch this space for new announcements.

If you want to know the details on how this is going to work, read on.

How it is going to work:

  • You will receive points for each run you complete, and your total score is the sum of all your attended (and finished) races.
  • The winner of a race receives 100 points. Every other runner receives points based on their time compared to the winner’s time.
  • For example, Sarah wins the race in 35:00. Sonja finished in 42:00. Sarah’s score is 100 because she won. Sonja’s score is 83.3. It is calculated by dividing the winner’s time (35 minutes) by her time (42 minutes) and then multiplying the results by 100. So 35/42 x 100 = 83.3.
  • Points are calculated separately for men and women. Men use the men’s winning time, and women use the women’s winning time to calculate points.
  • You are counted as a Series participant and your score will make you eligible for awards if you complete at least four out of six races in the Series.
  • You will need to have completed a minimum of four events in the SAME distance category (short, medium or long) in order to qualify.
  • Your age group for the Series will be your age as at end of the year.
  • Awards are presented to the overall top three male and female runners in the short, medium and long distance categories. As well as the first male/female runners in the following age groups: Juniors (under 16), 16-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50-59, 60+
  • The overall top three male and female runners are not eligible for age group awards.
  • An end of Series Celebration and Awards Presentation night will be held after the last event. More details TBC.
