ORI 1 Events

The Championships consist of Individual and Relay Championships for both men and women. There is also an Overall Team Championship.

 

ORI 1.1 Each relay team shall consist of three competitors.

 

ORI 1.2 The overall team score shall be calculated for each university by the following system:

 

ORI 1.2.1 Adding the placings of the three best men’s and women’s individual competitors to the placings (multiplied by three) of its placed men’s and women’s relay teams.

 

ORI 1.2.2. Placings include all the non-scoring athletes. For example if runners from Team A place 1,2,3,4 on the A course (so 4 doesn’t score for Team A) and runners from Team B place 5,6,7. Team B’s score from the course is 5+6+7=18.

 

ORI 1.2.3 For scoring purposes, the overall placing of a competitor on the B course is their placing plus the number of finishers (this does not include athletes who DNF or DSQ) on the A course, and the overall placing of a competitor on the C course is their placing plus the total number of finishers on the A and B courses.

 

ORI 1.2.4 Every missing runner is treated as though they finished one place behind the last finisher on the lowest course.

 

ORI 1.2.5 If a university has no place in a relay competition, it is deemed to have finished one place behind the last placed team.

 

ORI 1.3 The university with the lowest aggregate score is awarded the Overall Team Championship

 

ORI 1.3.1 Any ties are resolved, if possible, by considering the number of 1st places gained (both individual and relay), then, if necessary, the number of 2nd places and so on.
