USATF Rules indicate that when scoring by place:

  1. The team score shall be the total of the finishing positions of the scoring members. The team with the lowest total points is the team winner.
  2. Runners of incomplete teams, team entries not declared eligible for team scoring, and unattached or individual competitors will be eliminated from team scoring. Non-scoring declared members of complete teams shall retain their finishing positions and thereby displace other runners.
  3. When separate competitions are conducted simultaneously, each shall be scored independently. Runners on teams not eligible for a given competition will be eliminated from team scoring in that competition.
  4. In the event of a tie between two or more individual runners, each shall score the number of points determined by dividing the total of the finish places by the number of runners who have tied.
  5. If a team fails to finish with a complete scoring team, the team members finishing shall be counted as individuals in the race results and shall be eligible to receive individual awards.
  6. Ties between two or more teams shall be resolved by determining which team wins the most one-on-one match-ups among their five scoring members, comparing first to first, second to second, and so on through the final scoring place.
