Sunday Cross Country Rules & Guide

[Updated: 16/09/2016 for the 2016/17 season]

All runners must compete in Club vests.

Male – positions are added together for first ten finishers in each team, 3 of whom must be veterans and a maximum of 2 runners can be 2nd claim. The team with the lowest aggregate score receives 5 points down to 1 point for the team with the highest aggregate positions total.

In the event of a tie on positions, the team whose last scoring member finishes nearest first place shall determine the result.

Female - positions are added together for first six finishers in each team, 2 of whom must be veterans and a maximum of 1 runner can be 2nd claim. The team with the lowest aggregate score receives 5 points down to 1 point for the team with the highest aggregate positions total.

In the event of a tie on positions, the team whose last scoring member finishes nearest first place shall determine the result.

Overall – Male and Female positions are added together. The team with the lowest aggregate score receives 5 points down to 1 point for the team with the highest aggregate positions total.

In the event of a tie on positions, the points will be split between the two teams, e.g. if there is a tie for 2nd place each team will score 3.5 points.

Incomplete Teams - Non-runners score 10 points more than the last runner’s score for that race (i.e. if the last runner scores 220 points, non-runners will score 230 points).

Age Limits

All competitors in the League must be 17 years or over.

Individual Awards

There should be an award for each first place in MS, MV40, MV50, MV60 and MV70 and for FS, FV35, FV45, FV55 and FV65. The best 4 scores only for an individual would be counted to decide the winners of the individual age awards.

Non-runners score 10 points more than the last runner’s score in the relevant category for that race (Finishing positions within each age category to be counted, rather than overall finishing position, i.e. the first V40 scores 1 point, the second scores 2 points, etc.).

Runners stay in the same age category for the series based on their age at the date of the first race.

2nd Claim runners should be declared before the series starts.

Important Announcements

RACE RULES: Members are reminded that it is now against UKA and BARR rules to swap race numbers WITHOUT permission from the race organisers.  If a runner of an affiliated event is found to be in breach of this rule, then the runner can be disqualified and further sanctions applied to both the runners and their clubs.
