ukresults/Sweatshop Chorley Challenge Series 2005

This is the second series of races, taking place during all of 2005. Races at which ukresults has a presence have been selected for inclusion in this unique series. All you have to do is complete 7 races out of the 12 selected to be in with a chance of winning a Sweatshop voucher, courtesy of ukresults and Sweatshop Chorley.

General rules and prize list (click here) will remain as per the 2004 Challenge Series unless I can get more prizes or think of more rules! Remember - this will be 7 from 12 in 2005. You don't need to pre-enter, just enter each race and I'll hopefully correctly pick up your details.

The Rules

1To qualify for a prize in any category (open or vet) a runner needs to record a valid finishing time in his or her selection of at least 7 races out of the 12 listed.
2If there is more than one race at a venue (e.g. a Junior race or Fun Run in addition to the "main" 10k, half marathon or other race) only the "main" race at that venue is a counter for the purposes of this series.
3If a runner records more than 7 finish times, the best 7 (i.e. the 7 lowest points scores) will count.
4If a runner changes category during the year, his/her category will remain as that in which he/she completed his/her first recorded finish in this series.
5Points will be awarded to each runner based on a percentage of the male and (as appropriate) female race winner's time (this will balance out any difference in size of field which might cause unfair results in larger races).
6The male race winner will be awarded 100%. The female race winner will be awarded 100%. All male points will be computed against the male winner's time (and will therefore be higher percentages). All female points will be computed against the female winner's time (and will similarly be higher percentages).
7The person with 7 best finish points who records the lowest total number of points will be the winner in any category.
8If a person wins a prize in the "Open" category, he or she can also win a prize in their own "Vet" category in addition to the "Open" prize (i.e. one person can win two prizes). Also, older age categories do not score in respect of younger age categories (e.g. an M65 who is beating all M55 runners only counts in the M60+ category)
9In the unlikely event of a tie on points, the results for which will be calculated to four decimal points, the runner with the highest number of finishes shall be the winner. If the tied runners have the same number of finishes then any relevant prizes will be added together and shared equally.
10If the series should end and no person has won a prize in a particular category (for example because no-one has completed 7 races in that category) the prize in that category may be awarded to the next finisher in an adjacent age category (e.g. no Male 55, prize may go to 2nd in Male 50 or Male 60+) or to such other person as ukresults may, in their absolute discretion, think fit (e.g. spot prizes or other random distribution).
11As this is a personal, rather than club, challenge, any change of club does not affect a person's scoring but it shall be the responsibility of the runner involved in any change of club to ensure that ukresults are notified of such change to ensure that they are correctly identified in the results. Every effort will be made to ensure accuracy - runners are expected to assist by promptly pointing out any errors or omissions in the results of any race and/or the compiled series results. If you fail to advise then your points may be spread between two separate entries.
12These rules may be subject to amendment by ukresults at any time during the series but will only be amended for the express purpose of clarification of any point or matter of dispute which may arise, but the basic method of calculation and award of prizes will not be materially altered at any time.
13Current standings in the series may be published on this site at intervals, subject to pressures of time allowing. Remember, it's not over until the final race!!
