SCORING

For 7 races standard positional scoring will apply. For the relay race the times of individual runs (the fastest if more than one leg is run) will be tabulated to the form of a normal race.

If no club runners enter a race no team league points can be gained for that club.

Teams of less than four women or six men can have last place counting  + 1 in the combined men and women race.

In case of a tie, head to head first then continuous count back to one.

RESULTS

The league results will be taken directly off the official race results. Therefore if a club runner enters as an unattached runner; they will not count for their club.

All finish times will be based on gun time (irrespective of whether the race has chip timing)

PRESENTATIONS

Presentations will take place at the presentation evening, date as listed above.

CLUB MEMBERS

All clubs will provide Stan with a list of their member’s names and ages prior to the first event in the race series (and at the latest by Sunday 26th March 2017)

All existing club runners and new club runners who wish to be included in a club team must wear a club vest for all races within the series.

All runners must represent their first claim club, however a second claim runner can compete, if their first claim team is not taking part in the league.

Stan should be advised minimum of 24 hours before any event of a new member, (preferably by the team manager), who will then be included in the provisional results.

If for whatever reason a ‘new’ club runner appears on the race results, but Stan has not been made aware, they will not count in the provisional results. However Stan will flag up their name/names to the relevant club, who then have 7 clear days from issue of the request to confirm their membership. If this does not occur they will not be listed in the official results.

Published final results produced by Stan based on the Burton and District Summer League rules are not subject to change.

Failure to do any of the above will render that runner ineligible to score for the team. Burton and District Summer Leagues Committee decision on any matters relating to the above are final.

A team manager will be appointed by each club, for each race, who on the day of the race takes responsibility for any issues, concerning club member’s etc. These managers must identify themselves and report to Stan over any matters raised.

Results will be withheld if necessary until the issue/s are resolved or taken to the committee.
