Too cold and dark for early morning boot camps?.. Too painful pounding the streets inhaling car fumes?... Too annoying when you get the 9pm court time at indoor netball?... We say ditch it. Come and find out what's really getting teams off the couch this winter - because they LOVE IT!!!
The 2015 Blackmores XTERRA Auckland Trail Run/Walk Series TEAMS CHALLENGE is where it's at. Tick all the boxes: get fit and stay fit over winter, get out of the concrete jungle and discover some of Auckland's most stunning trail-running spots, hang out with your mates and build staff morale and loyalty. It's as social or competitive as you want it to be and distance options cater for all levels or offer the chance to step up or down over the series AAAAAND a FREE sausage and SPEIGHTs at each event - how good is that?
What we have done is applied a factor to individual results to make them fair when used as team results. The multiplication factor will depend on what distance option you did, and this will make the team points much fairer, and will no longer favour the short courses.
The following factors will be used to work out your team points:
(i.e. this is what your individual points will be multiplied by to give you your team's points. So, in the example above. Short course runner: 3.00 X 1 =3.00. Super long runner: 12.00 x ¼ = 3.00)
The teams' points for each of the 7 rounds will be calculated by adding up the best 5 individual team scores from the team members in each team. The overall winning team will then be the team with the lowest total score when all 7 rounds scores are added together at the end of the series.
Following the completion of the 2014 Blackmores XTERRA Series we will have a very relaxed prize giving night at a local bar, where everyone will be welcome to have a drink to celebrate another great series and to acknowledge the winners in each category of the series with a cool prize.
Note: If you are running as part of a team, you are still eligible for individual placings for the series, providing you stay in the same distance option over at least 5 events.Top
