Team Scoring – Updated for 2014!

All teams are co-ed & must have 2 or more of each gender finish to qualify for prizes. Teams are scored based on the sum of the fastest 8 finishers’ times.  Here are the rules:

  • There are 2 divisions:  ”Half Marathon Co-ed” & “5K Co-ed”
  • Half Marathon teams can only have half marathon participants and 5K Teams can only have 5K participants
  • More than 10 may join your team.  However, in the event your team wins, the number of award packages may be limited to approximately 10.
  • If you have less than 10 on your team, that is OK, because each team member is still registered as individuals.  Also, team participation does not affect eligibility to receive individual awards (i.e., age group winner, overall masters, etc).
  • A minimum of 10 must be registered per team by March 1st in order to be eligible for awards.
  • A team’s final score is the sum of the fastest 8 finishers’ times (with 2 or more of each gender in the calculation).
  • The lowest team score in each division wins

Good luck – and may the best teams win!
