The Rules:
The current rules, as at 1st Jan 2021, are here:
1. Your best 4 events this calendar year will contribute to your overall point score. (Due to Covid-19 this rule was subsequently amended to best 3 events).
2. Your points are individual but earned as part of a team (unless the event accepts solo entries). For example you are a 57 year old woman competing in a mixed team. Your points will be awarded to you in the Womenís Super Veteran category
3. The points you earn for each event are calculated by taking your teamís score expressed as a % of the overall median score for that course (ignoring category).
4. There will be the usual categories as per the rules of rogaining (no junior category, only under 23).
5. For the purpose of this point score, youíre only up against others in the category that is defined by your age and gender (i.e. A menís super veteran will not also compete in the open menís category, which is different to our usual rules for event).
6. If you change category during the year your points roll to the older one. (i.e. you turn 55 during the year your cumulative score for the year gets moved to Menís or Womenís Super Veterans.)
7. A volunteer at an event will be awarded their average score for that year.
8. Five points will be added to your score for each hour of the event duration you have entered.
