2015 Scoring

  • Note: The following scoring description only applies to 2015 and is listed here for historical purposes.
  • Points are scored as percentage of winning time (for your gender) multiplied by the distance run in miles.
    • Formula:  (Wt / Yt) x D = score
      • Wt = winning time in seconds (Men and Women are scored separately)
      • Yt = your time in seconds
      • Example:  your time is 11 hours for a 50 mile race while the winning time for was 8 hours.  (8h/11h) x 50 = 36.4 points.
    • D = Distance is based on the advertised race distance.
    • When races is advertised in kilometers, it will be converted to miles (rounded to the nearest tenth).
    • Timed Races Scoring
      • Races 5 hours and above count towards the Ultra Series, Races below 5 hours count towards the Trail Series.
      • Scoring is number of miles run within the time allocated with a modifier of 90%. This means if you run 100 miles in 24 hours, you’d get 90 points.
  • A runner may run more than 7 races in a series but only their top 7 scores will score in that series.
  • Must complete a minimum of 4 races to qualify for the Trail Championship Point Series awards.
  • Runners are rewarded by running more races and the longer distances within each series division.
