Awards may be picked up at your convenience.
The competitor who travels the greatest distance in a particular leg receives 100 points for that leg. All other competitors will receive a percentage of those points based on their distance traveled in that leg. Each leg of the race counts equally towards the total score. Example: John swims the furthest distance, 800 meters; John receives 100 points. Adam swims 700 meters; 700 ÷ 800 = .875 × 100 = 87.5; Adam receives 87.5 points. Swim + Bike + Run = total score
