Masters Team Scoring

Masters Teams for all Road Race Championships shall be scored by time as follows:
The team score shall be the aggregate official time of the scoring members. The team with the lowest aggregate time is the team winner. Team divisions for both Master Men and Master Women are: 40+, 50+, 60+, 70+ and 80+.

All Master Teams – three (3) individuals shall score with a maximum of five (5) individuals declared per team. Each age division shall be scored separately by adding the official times of the top 3 declared team finishers. A runner may only be listed on a single team roster. We will score only complete teams.  If your Club has more than one team in a 10-year age division, you may form an “A” team, “B” team, etc for this competition.

USATF Rules indicate that when scoring by time:
(a) If a team fails to finish with a complete scoring team (i.e., less than 3 finishers), then that team shall not be scored. However, the team members who do finish shall be counted as individuals in the race results and shall be eligible to win individual awards.

(b) Ties between two or more teams within a division shall be resolved by determining which team wins the most one-on-one match-ups among their 3 scoring members, comparing first runner to first runner, second to second and third to third. The team that has more wins in these one-on-one match-ups will be awarded the higher place.
