SCORING


In the senior races the first three finishers shall score for the team while in the

junior races, the first two finishers shall score.


Each race shall be scored separately. The team results shall be decided by the

aggregate of places recorded by the scoring athletes of each team. The team

with the lowest aggregate of points 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.


No adjustment to the scoring places of the finishing teams shall be made in

respect of any non-scoring team athletes or of individual entries.


In the event of a tie, it shall be resolved in favour of the team whose last scoring

member finishes nearer to first place.


ENTRY REGULATIONS


Senior Races

A Member Federation may enter a maximum of seven walkers; no more than

five shall be allowed to start in the race with three to score. A Member Federation may enter a team in both the Senior Men’s Races (20km or 50km) but no athlete may compete in both.


Junior Races

A Member Federation may enter a maximum of five walkers; no more than three

shall be allowed to start in the race with two to score.


Individual Entries

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