*Time Points

Time points are awarded to you based on your time compared to other SE Fitness runners in the same event.  Send your time to helyn@sefitness.com or message 07788 628755 after the event and I’ll work out the points.  Men and Women points awarded separately.

Personal Best

Claim 5 points for a personal best (PB) if it’s your fastest ever run at that distance.  If it’s your first race at that distance it is automatically a PB!  Claim additional points when you submit your time.

Improving Points

There are several 5K, 10k and 10 mile events in the series.  If your times improve you can claim 3 ‘improver’ points.

Any Spring / Summer Half / Full Marathon or Trail Run

Choose your own half marathon, full marathon or trail run and claim extra points.  You can only claim once in each category but you can claim one in each category!  Eg you can claim, any half marathon plus any marathon plus for example a 10 mile trail run so 10 plus 15 plus 10 points.
