The fastest student in each competition class scores 100 points. Each other student scores proportionally fewer points—for example, if you take twice as long as the winner, then you'd get 50 points. DNF, DNS, and MSP score zero points.
- I am a 13-year-old (14 in December) 8th-grade girl who runs F-16 Orange normally, but middle school Yellow for IS. Can I run IS and still get counted in USOF rankings?
- Yes, if you register for F-16 Orange. For the IS champs, you can always run at a higher level, but your points will be based on the winner of the JV Girls class, not the Middle School Girls class.
- I am a 14-year-old 9th-grade boy who runs M-16 Orange normally, but Varsity Green for IS. Can I get points for Varsity IS?
- Yes, but you would have to register for M-18 Green to do this. Alternatively, you could always run M-16 Orange and compete at the JV level.
- You said that there is no maximum team size. Does that mean that we can't have two teams from the same school?
- No, you can have two teams, even two teams of one student each, but each team would be scored separately.
- How about if we had 20 students on our team and we win a medal. Do all 20 students get an award?
