Just after the start. Running under "The Towers".
A traditional cross-country style scoring system will be used, which uses place instead of time. Only runners on eligible teams will be counted in the scoring. To qualify as eligible, male teams must have at least five (5) members and female teams must have at least three (3) members.
First eligible-team finisher scores one point; second finisher, two points; third finisher, three points, and so on. On male teams, the top five (5) finishers score. On female teams the top three (3) finishers score. The score is determined by totaling the points of the scoring runners, thus the team with the lower point total is the winner. Although the non-scoring eligible-team runners do not score points, their places, if better than those of any of the opposing eligible-team runners, may serve to increase the team score of the opponents.
Non-team runners and runners on non-eligible teams do not affect the scoring.
Tie Breaker 1: Total time of scoring runners.
Tie Breaker 2: Time of first team finisher.
Post-registered runners may participate in team competition. A representative from each team will provide the race director with a team roster during the registration period. Please find roster forms at the registration table. No adjustments can be made after the registration period. Any questions should be addressed to the race director, and the race director has authority on all matters pertaining to the team competition.
