Team Challenge Scoring
- Only complete teams are scored. Complete teams must have 5 or more finishers.
- Runners are placed within their teams by their finish time, fastest to slowest.
- The number of points a runner earns for their team is determined by their ranking among qualified runners. Qualified runners are the fastest 7 runners on complete teams.
- A team’s total points is the point sum of the first 5 qualified runners on a complete team.
- Positions 1-5 within a team are called scorers. Positions 6 and 7 within a team are called displacers.
In the event of a tie:
- A tie is broken by the first displacer
- If a team does not have displacers, the team with 6 finishers wins.
