Member Federations may enter one team in each race. A maximum of seven athletes may be entered; no more than five will be allowed to start, with three to score.


Individual entries by Member Federations are admitted in any of the two races and the finishing athletes shall be eligible for the corresponding individual awards.


SCORING


In both races the first three finishers shall score for the team.


Each race shall be scored separately. The team results shall be decided by the aggregate of times recorded by the scoring athletes of each team. The team with the lowest aggregate of times will be judged the winner. If a team fails to finish with a complete scoring team, the runners finishing shall be counted as individuals in the race result and be eligible for the individual awards.


In the event of a tie, it shall be resolved in favour of the team whose last scoring member finishes nearer to first place.
