Individual and team scorers must be USATF members prior to participating in any particular race.
 
Scoring-Individuals
Runners score points based on their time as a percentage of the winner's overall time, making every second count. For example, an 8K winning time of 25:00 earns 100.00 points; a runner-up finish time of 25:45 is worth 97.00 points. A finish time of 37:30 receives 50.00 points (equivalent to 50% of the winning time). All finishers earn points with the runner's top 4 of 5 races finish scores totaled.
 
Athletes must complete at least four races to be eligible to receive individual prize awards and be included in the final Grand Prix Series standings. 
Must race the USATF-NE X-C Championships to be eligible for prize money. 
Individuals will be scored in the following categories: 
Open M/W 
M/W 40-49 
M/W 50-59 
M/W 60+ 
 
Points will be awarded for the age division the runner competed.
If separate Open and 40+ races are offered, 40+ runners will earn points for the Open division if they compete in the Open race. No points will be awarded to them in the Masters division. 
 
Scoring - Teams
Teams must complete at least three series races, one of which must include the USATF-NE X-C Championships, to be eligible for team prize money. 

Traditional team cross country scoring will be used. 
Runners on incomplete teams, unattached runners, runners on non-USATF-NE teams and runners without a valid USATF-NE membership will not be included in team scoring. 
 
Top 5 runners (with 2 displacers) will score for Open Men, Men 40+, Men 50+ and Open Women divisions. If a team in any above-mentioned division fails to finish 5 runners, they will be considered “incomplete” and will not be included in team scoring. 
Top 3 runners (with 2 displacers) will score for Women 40+, Women 50+, Women 60+ and Men 60+ divisions. If a team in the above-mentioned division fails to finish 3 runners, they will be considered “incomplete” and will not be included in team scoring. 
 
Teams do not need to declare eligible scoring runners prior to competition. 
In the  event of a tie, the team with the better placed displacer wins. In Men’s Open, Men’s Masters and Women’s Open divisions, the team’s 6th finisher will be the displacer used to determine the tiebreaker. In all other divisions, the team’s 4th finisher will be the displacer used to determine the tiebreaker.
 
Runners dropping down in age divisions for team scoring purposes must run in the appropriate age division race if there are separate age division races. 
Points are awarded to all scoring teams in all divisions. The first-place team in each division will receive points equal to the number of scoring teams in that division, with a minimum of 5 points. The following team will receive one point less until all teams have been scored.
