ELVIS SCORING 2019 - Note new for 2019 - Equalisation of Vet Age Groups and Team Scoring categories

ELVIS Scoring

As the first ELVIS race starts on Wednesday 29th May 2019 the Team Captains explain what all the fuss is all about.

Apart from being good fun, there is a highly competitive element to the ELVIS series of races for both individuals and running clubs. The scoring process is fiendishly complex and managed on an Excel Spreadsheet by Martin Clarke from Ilford AC. We have tried to summarise the rules below, but more information can be found on the ELVIS races website.

Individuals
Individuals all take part in an Open Competition, and there are prizes for:

1st, 2nd, 3rd men overall

1st, 2nd, 3rd women overall

1st only in the following VET categories - MV40, MV50, MV60, MV70, FV40, FV50,FV60,FV70.(New for 2019 in bold) Only one prize per competitor based on highest value principle.

The prizes are announced and handed out after each race (based on the rules of the individual race organiser), so hang around if you think you might have won one!

Individual competitors must compete in six of the eight races to qualify for the Grand Prix. If more than six races are completed the best six positions will be used in the scoring/ finishing positions to calculate the Grand Prix position.

Interclub Competition.
There are team competitions for men and women.

Men's team points will be calculated on the first 6 finishers and must include 3 vets aged 40 plus.

Women's team points will also be calculated on the first 6 finishers and must include 3 vets aged 40 plus.(New for 2019 in bold)

Scoring is done on overall position in the race i.e. including taking into account other runners from the 8 competing teams, so if you finish ahead of other clubs’ members you might be helping ELR's overall position.

The individual scores will be accumulated to decide the team position for each race and the winners will receive 1 point, 2nd place 2 points, 3rd place 3 points and so on. Each team will have its best 6 scores out of the 8 races taken to decide the final team positions. The team with the lowest accumulated score over its best 6 races will be declared the winners. In the event of a tie between 2 teams the team with the lowest accumulated individual scores over the best 6 races will be declared as superior.

Trophies and Party.
There will be two interclub shields (men and women) to be kept by the winning teams for one year which will then be returned. Trophies and prizes will be awarded at a special presentation evening, i.e. party, in October.
