How does this work?

Each runner attending a handicap race is awarded points as follows:

  • One attendance point for completing the run.
  • One point per 5 seconds (or part thereof) a runner is under their current handicap time, with a maximum of 15 points. This can be expressed as MAX(15, ((H-A) + 4) // 5) where H - A is the number of seconds the runner beat their handicap time by.
  • Five points for winning "guess your time" (i.e. the person whose guess was closest to their actual time)

The maximum number of points possible from a single race is 1 attendance point + 15 points for beating your handicap by 71 seconds or more + 5 for "guess your time" = 21 points.

At the end of the series, your best five scores are added to derive a final score. To qualify for the prestigious sock trophy, you must have run in at least five races throughout the year.
