OY points calculation overview
There are 12 OY grades in the OY competition:
|Red Long Female||Red Long Male|
|Red Medium Female||Red Medium Male|
|Red Short Female||Red Short Male|
|Orange Female||Orange Male|
|Yellow Female||Yellow Male|
|White Female||White Male|
- The first place runner in each grade gets 25 points.
- Other runners are awarded points based on their time behind the winner.
Calculated as 25 * (winning time/competitors time).
- Each competitors top 6 scores from the series of 8 events are added to get the series score.
- A minimum of 15 points is awarded where the calculation would result in a score of less than 15. A mis-punch gets 10 points.
- If you run an event in a different grade to your usual OY grade, you will also receive 10 points for a lower grade or 15 points for a higher grade.
- Planners and controllers of OY events get 25 points for that event.
- See OY rules (updated 2021) for the full rules and details of calculations used for the score event.
