WORS Points

Scoring is based on a point system (developed in Excel Spreadsheet format by Pat Jorgenson and currently compiled by John Payne) whereby points are assigned based on each person's finish within their age group and the top 3 overall M&F finishers get bonus points in each race. You must complete 3 to be eligible for awards


The Age Group (AG) point system for each race is:
  • 1st place in the AG - 25 points
  • 2nd - 18 points
  • 3rd - 16 points
  • 4th - 14 points
  • 5th - 12 points
  • 6th - 10 points
  • 7th - 8 points
  • All other finishers in the age group get 6 points.

  • The bonus points for the top 3 overall M&F in each race is:
  • 1st place overall - 10 points (35 max)
  • 2nd - 4 points (29 max)
  • 3rd - 2 points (27 max)

  • A separate point system is used for Masters (40 & above), Grand Master (50 & above) and Senior Master (Male 60 & above). Each of these 3 categories earns “Masters Points” in each race:

  • 1st Master gets 5
  • 2nd Master gets 4
  • 3rd Master gets 3
  • 4th Master gets 2
  • 5th Master gets 1
  • Masters Points are kept separately and never combined with the age group points. Grand Masters or Senior Masters points cannot be added to Masters points although individuals in these categories can earn Masters points, effectively taking them away from slower runners in younger age groups. For all award calculations Masters points are never combined with Age Group points, Grand Masters points or Senior Masters points, etc. You get a bonus point for completing all 4 races.
