The scoring system is designed to reward both participation and performance.
Eligibility: Beginning in 2016, you must be a club member to earn points in the series. If you join before the second race in the series, we will include your scoring in the first race; however, if you join after the second race, we will only include your scores in the races you ran after joining.
Racing Age: Age group will be determined by your age on the day of your first race in the series.
Divisions: There will be male and female divisions divided by age as follows: 0-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50-59, 60-69 and 70+.
Races: Best 6 out of 8 races will count towards the season championships. No minimum number of races to be eligible for series age group division awards. Scoring only applies to the longer distance in races with multiple distances.
Timing: In races that report net (start & end chip mat) timing, that net time will be considered as the runner’s official finish time with regard to awarding UVRS points.
Points: All finishers will receive points. If you do not finish or participate in an event, you will receive 0 points for that event.
Points will be distributed as follows:
