2019 West Metropolitan Calendar
EXPLANATION OF THE WINTER CLUB COMPETITION POINT
The point score is based on
participation in the various West Metropolitan Zone Events.
Competition for males and
females is separate.
Athletes must have finished an
event to score points in that event. To be eligible for a Club
award, athletes must have completed at least 50% of the events on
offer. Point scoring is determined as follows:
West Metropolitan Zone races:
The Short, Medium and Long
distances are open to all age groups.
Athletes are included in the
Short, Medium or Long distance category based on the distance they
nominate at the commencement of the season.
Where an athlete fails to
notify the Winter Competition Manager of a nomination the athlete is
allocated a category at the managersí discretion.
Points are awarded from the
fastest finisher to the slowest i.e. first finisher gains maximum
points (generally 30), second gained 29 points, third gained 28
If athletes do not participate
in their nominated event but participate in another event, they
received half points for one event only based on the same point
scoring criteria as above, e.g. if 3rd
normally receives 28 points, they would receive 14 points.
Calculating Total Points
To allow those who miss the
occasional run to still be competitive in the point score, the final
score will be made of the competitorís best 10 events of the season,
meaning that if an athlete ran in all 14 West Metropolitan Zone
races, their 4 lowest scoring races will be omitted from the final
