Super 7 Competition

This series was first conducted during the 2002-03 race year. It is a point score series where the best seven (7) races of a member are averaged over the year to determine the highest scorer. Points are determined using the World Masters Athletics Road Age Standards that allocate points to performances based on the age and gender of the athlete. The member with the highest total point score wins. Trophies are awarded to the top seven (7) finishers in the competition. The competition rules are as follows:

  1. Members can earn points in the following events:

  4. Where 'gun time' and 'net time' are measured, then the time used is the 'net time'.
  5. The seven (7) best AG scores will be totalled for each participant
  6. For other than the Terrigal Trotters Time Trials, it will be the responsibility of the participant to notify the Results Coordinator of their race results.
  7. Competitors must compete under their own name. That is, they cannot compete under another runner’s name if that runner pre-entered and then withdrew for some reason such as injury, illness etc.

Time Trial Competition

This series was first conducted during the 2002-03 race year. It is a point score series where the best seven (7) races of a member are averaged over the year to determine the highest scorer. Points are determined using the World Masters Athletics Road Age Standards that allocate points to performances based on the age and gender of the athlete. The member with the highest total point score wins. Trophies are awarded to the top seven (7) finishers in the competition. The competition rules are as follows:

  1. Members can earn points in all Terrigal Trotters 10km Time Trials.:
  2. The finishing times of all participants will be adjusted for age and gender using the “WMA Road Age Standards” tables. This will give a rating for the performance out of 1,000.
  3. Where 'gun time' and 'net time' are measured, then the time used is the 'net time'.

Ultra Competition

This is a point score series where the three best ultra-running (distances greater than 42.195km) performance points of a member over the year are totalled to determine the highest scorer. Points are determined using the World Masters Athletics Road Age Standards that allocate points to performances based on the age and gender of the athlete, with adjustments for terrain and distance as detailed below. The member with the highest average point score wins, and trophies are awarded to the top three finishers in the competition. The competition rules are as follows:

  1. Members can earn points in any official competitive ultra-running event they complete over a distance of greater than 42.195km where results are published . This can include individual times in team events such as the Oxfam Trailwalker.
  2. Only members who complete at least three ultra-running events in the competition year qualify for this competition.
  3. Where 'gun time' and 'net time' are measured, then the time used is the 'net time'.
  4. For other than the Terrigal Trotter-organised Great North Walk 100s, it will be the responsibility of the participant to notify the Results Coordinator of their race results.
  5. Competitors must compete under their own name. That is, they cannot compete under another runner’s name if that runner pre-entered and then withdrew for some reason such as injury, illness etc.
  6. Point scores will be calculated as follows:
    1. The finishing times of all participants will be used to calculate a “Raw AG Points Score” using the “WMA Road Age Standards” tables which adjust for the age and gender of competitors. This will give a rating for the performance out of 1,000.
    2. The “Raw AG Points Score” will be multiplied by 1.4 to give a “Terrain-Adjusted AG Points Score” for all events that are not conducted on a running track or relatively flat loop road course. This is done to take account of the difficult terrain encountered in other ultra-distance events.
    3. The “Terrain-Adjusted AG Points Score” will be multiplied by 1.0 for distances of less than 70km, by 1.1 for distances from 70-99km, by 1.2 for distances from 100-149km, by 1.3 for distances from 150-199km, and 1.4 for distances of 200km and over, to calculate the “Terrain & Distance-Adjusted AG Points Score”. This is to take account of the greater toll taken on competitors in the longer events which may also impact their ability to perform in other ultra-running events during the year.
    4. The “Terrain & Distance-Adjusted AG Points Scores” achieved by each member over the competition year will be averaged to determine the winner and place-getters.
