New for 2018 - CROC Summer Classic Series!
CROC is excited to announce the first annual Summer Classic Series, to be followed by the Fall Classic Series. This year's regular meets are organized into two scored groups. In a nutshell, you come, you compete, you score points.
The Summer Classic Series will include the following events:
- Hamilton Island - May 19
- McIver State Park - June 23
- Lacamas Lake Park - July 7
- Willamette Mission State Park - Aug 4
Your best three out of four (Summer Classic Series) and best two out of three (Fall Classic Series) will be awarded points so you can compete over more than one meet.
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!
Put these on your calendar and enjoy a little friendly competition!
