In each eligible race, the number of finishers, including those people running or walking or bicycle riding an alternate course, is used as a base for everyone's points that day.
Everyone gets 5 points just for finishing.
The remainder of your points depends on your finishing place in the race. You get 1 point for every finisher you beat.
Your Points = Total Number of Finishers + 5 - Your Place
So, if there are 74 finishers, and you win the race, your points are 74 + 5 - 1 = 78. If you finish in 10th place, your points are 74 + 5 - 10 = 69.
For placing and points purposes, all those human finishers who complete an alternate course get 5 points. Finishers in the canine division are not counted in the points calculation.
The following races are not eligible for points: Thanksgiving Race, Roxbury Marathon, Half-Marathon, un-timed fun runs, last race of the year (season awards ceremony).
