As always, your top 7 scores will be counted toward your total score.
For most races 10 points are allocated for the first place Heaton finisher, 8 points to the second, 6 points to the third and 5 to all other Heaton runners. Points are allocated based on finish positions, not times, with the exception of relays.
For Harrier League cross country, races are scored slightly differently so all counters are awarded bonus points. For the women, the counting team will be awarded 10, 8, 7 and 6 points based on their position, and the men’s counters will be awarded 12, 10, 9, 8, 7 and 6 points. All other participants will still receive 5 points.
