How results are calculated
Club members who compete in 7 or more of these races will receive a commemorative shirt and are eligible for other awards based on the following point system.
Finish times graded on a scale that takes into account age and gender. In each race the top finisher among our club runners received 15 points, second 12 points, third 10 points, fourth 9 points, fifth 8 points, etc. All finishers, regardless of time, received at least 1 point.
For example: If the first RMHP-RC runner is a 60-year-old female who runs 27:00 minutes, and the next club finisher is a 70-year-old male who runs 28:00 minutes, his graded time of 20:49 places him ahead of her graded time of 21:30. He would receive 15 points; she would receive 12 points.
