The Scoring System

This year, there will no longer be bonus points for lucky finisher positions. Instead 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
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
Just a quick clarification on the rules, the time which anyone runs at their first event in the challenge will become their ‘parkrun challenge 2019 PB’ and will be used for the duration of the series.
Any questions, please speak to Tom Davies me on a club night or email –
