SERIES RULES AND SCORING | 2017 SERIES

In 2017 M2N will host more events than ever before, and there will be more chances to WIN than ever before.

 

  • After completion of each event in the 2017 M2N Race Series, every participant will receive an Event Score
  • Upon completion of any 5 scored M2N events a participant will receive a Series Score.
  • The Series Score for anyone participating in more than 5 events will be the total of their 5 lowest individual Event Scores.
  • Participants may compete in as many M2N Events as they like and their best 5 Event Scores will make up their final Series Score at the end of 2017.
  • Participants with less than 5 individual Event Scores at the end of the 2017 season will not receive a Series Score and will not be eligible for series awards.

 

2017 Overall Series Winners

At the completion of the final event of the 2017 Race Series, the male and female with the lowest Series Score will be named the Overall Series Winners.

 

New For 2017

Age Group Awards

1st – 3rd place men and women in each age group will receive an award. These will be the three individuals in each age group with lowest Series Scores.

 

Series Age Groups:

Males 0-12, 13-19, 20-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50-59, 60-69, 70+

Females 0-12, 13-19, 20-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50-59, 60-69, 70+

 

A participant’s ‘Series Age Group’ will be based on their age as of 12/31/2017.  This will be the age used for ‘Series’ awards and ranking.

 

A participant’s ‘Event Age’ will be determined by the rules of each individual event.  Events may use the ‘Series Age’ or the athlete’s age on the day of the Event for individual Event Awards.  This will be left to the discretion of the race directors and will not impact your Series Score or Ranking.

 

End of the Year M2N Banquet

Anyone with at least 5 event scores at the end of the 2017 season will receive FREE entry into the End of the Year Year M2N Banquet at Windwood of Watertown. Winners will be announced and prizes will be awarded at the End of the Year M2N Banquet.

 

How Athletes are Scored

Upon completion of each event, each participant will receive an Event Score.

 

Timed Events

For all Timed Events Points will be assigned as follows:

 

  • 1st place = 1 point
  • 2nd place = 2 points
  • 10th place = 10 points
  • 100th place = 100 points
  • And so on.

 

Men and Women will be scored separately.  1st place male = 1 point:  1st place female = 1 point

 

Participation Based Events

For 2017, the Tour da Goose Bike Ride will be scored based on the distance completed, not on time.  The event distances will be scored as follows:

 

  • 100 Miles = 5 points
  • 62 Miles = 10 points
  • 42 Miles = 15 points
  • 22 Miles = 20 points
  • 12 Miles = 25 points

 

Once an athlete accumulates 5 Event Scores they will receive a Series Score which will qualify them for Series Awards and FREE admission into the End of the Year M2N Awards Banquet.
