Thursday 28 December 2017 Winter League 4 Fosse Meadows Night

Event Level: Local
Notes:
Winter League

The Winter League consists of a number of level D events taking place from September to February. They include night events, weekend daytime events and Wednesday events during half term week. There is usually a social venue (pub) for competitors meet afterwards.

Trophies are given for Men Open, Women Open and Junior.

League table:
After 2 events you will register in the results table with your best 5 scores counting. For each course, the average time for the top three finishers represents 100 points for Long, 75 for Medium and 50 for Short. Each competitor’s scores are calculated as follows
•Long Course: 100 points is awarded for the average time of top 3 competitors and then score is 100 x average time/your time so competitors can score over 100 points
•Medium Course: 75 points to winner then score is 75 x winners time/your time
•Short Course: 35 points to winner then score is 35 x winners time/your time

The scores are then given a handicap depending on age class. M21 is scratch and for each age class older or younger, a cumulative 4% is applied. For Women’s classes, W21 is M21 +4%. With a further 4% added per age class in each direction.

Unlike the summer league no points are given for attendance.
