CROC Fall Classic Series - Last Chance To Compete!
CROC's regular meets have been organized into two scored groups, the now-concluded Summer Classic Series and the Fall Classic Series. In a nutshell, you come, you compete, you score points. The Summer Series ranked the best finishers in three out of four meets. The Fall Classic Series has just completed the first two out of three events. Rankings are for the best two results in three meets:
Catherine Creek - September 29
Battle Ground Lake State Park - October 13 (Winsplits results available here.)
Course categories are White (beginner), Yellow (advanced beginner), Orange (intermediate), and Green (advanced).
Series scoring: At each race, the winner for the course scores 1000 points. Then all other finishers get points based on their finishing time compared to the winner's time.
Formula: 1000 * Winner's time / Competitor's time = Points. For example, if the winner completes the course in 30 minutes, they score 1000 points. If another competitor completes the course in 60 minutes, they score 500 points. A finisher with a time of 75 minutes will score 400 points (1000 * 30 / 75). Ties will be broken by comparing the highest score by each competitor.
Watch this space for the results as they accumulate. Maybe you have figured this out by now, but showing up at all the meets might give you an advantage!
