Winter League
The 2019/20 LEI Winter League consists of 8 events taking place from October to February. They include: night events, urban events, Saturday events and Wednesday(half term) events. Your top 5 scores count on the league table. Trophies are given for overall Winter League winner, top placed Woman and top placed Junior.

League table:
Your score is calculated as:
Long: 100 x average time for the top 3 competitors/your time
Medium: 75 x winner’s time/your time
Short: 35 x winner’s time/your time
The scores are then multiplied by an age class factor.
Unlike the summer league no points are given for attendance.
