For those interested, points are scored based on your time compared to the average of the fastest three people on your course and you are awarded an extra 10 points for each event you enter. Handicap points are then added based on BOF age groups with 4% extra points allocated per age group below and above M/W21. Organisers are automatically allocated points on any event that they organise equal to their best points scored in the other events. For the moment, points in your best ten events will count towards your league score but this may be reduced a little depending on how many events actually get included in the programme.
