Team Challenge Scoring

  1. Only complete teams are scored.  Complete teams must have 5 or more finishers.
  2. Runners are placed within their teams by their finish time, fastest to slowest.
  3. The number of points a runner earns for their team is determined by their ranking among qualified runners within their gender.  Qualified runners are the fastest 7 runners on complete teams.
  4. A teams total points is the point sum of the first 5 qualified runners on a complete team.
  5. Positions 1-5 within a team are called scorers. Positions 6 and 7 within a team are called displacers

In the event of a tie:

  1. A tie is broken by the first displacer
  2. If a team does not have displacers then the team with 6 finishers wins.
  3. If both teams have only 5 finishers then the  total score of the first 4 finishers wins.
