USATF New England Mountain Circuit Rules and Scoring
Runners score points based on their time as a percentage of the winner's overall time, making every second count! For example, a winning time of 41:08 gets 100.00 points; a time of 42:21 is worth 97.13, and 1:20:32 gets 51.08 (the winning time being just about 50 percent of that runner's time). Women's scoring is now based on 100.00 points for the first female finisher. A runner's top 6 of 8 races are totaled.
SCORING ELIGIBILITY CUTOFF
Because the primary goals of the series are to promote the sport of Mountain Running and encourage membership in USATF, runners' scores for all races they participate in will be counted in scoring if they join USATF before the start of the second event in the circuit. To join or renew your USATF membership, go to www.usatne.org/member
The circuit awards special T-shirts to "Mountain Goats", USATF members who complete six of the eight circuit races.
As a USATF-New England program, circuit scoring eligibility is limited to individuals who are USATF members. Though all races are open to all runners, USATF membership is required to score and win awards in the circuit. If you have additional questions, feel free to email or call the USATF-NE office, (617) 566-7600.
The circuit was founded by Dave Dunham and continues under current USATF-NE Mountain / Trail Running chairman Paul Kirsch. Dave Dunham still does the scoring for the series. Thanks for your interest in Mountain Running!
