HOW TO ENTER

The scoring system for the Somerset Series is as follows; you score points in each race depending on your gender finishing position.  So for example if you finished 3rd in a race, but the first lady, you would score one point.  Similarly if a  man finished 4th in the same race he would score three points as only two other men had finished ahead of him.  

Runners need to complete a minimum of 8 races over the course of the year to qualify.  If you complete more than 8 races then you start removing your worst points scores.  So as an example if a runner finished 9 races, placing 5th, 5th, 10th, 4th, 20th, 6th, 7th, 3rd and 30th their total score would be 60 as their 30th place finish wouldn't count towards their total.  The idea being to try and score as low a total as possible. Due to race cancellations, the requirement has changed to 7 races, with the 7 best scores qualifying.

Runners don't necessarily have to be affiliated to a running club or based in Somerset.  We have various prizes for the top three in age categories and the top overall 10 men and women.  Prize winners each receive an engraved wine glass and everyone who completes 8 races gets a prize (the nature of this is to be confirmed for 2022).

We will start posting standings after race 3 of the 2022 Series.  Your age category is determined by your age on 1st January 2022.
