* It is hoped that a new local parkrun will have started by October which we can use as part of parkrun challenge. If for whatever reason the event is not up and running by then an alternative local venue will be used.
The Scoring System
As per previous years the following points will be awarded:
10 points for running at the event
10 points for setting a PB
5 points for getting within 20 seconds of your PB
Bonus points will be awarded for the number of events completed as follows:
12 events – 100 points
11 events – 80 points
10 events – 60 points
9 events – 50 points
8 events – 30 points
7 events – 15 points
Just a quick clarification on the rules, the time which anyone runs at their first event in the challenge will become their ‘parkrun challenge 2020 PB’ and will be used for the duration of the series.
