Rules for Spring Cup 2001 Elite Team Competition

1. The competition is based upon the result of the elite classes D17-18E,D19-20E and D21 E1, plus H17-18E, H19-20E and H21E1 of the Spring Cup Classic

2. Runners count in the competition for the teams under which they are entered into the Spring Cup Classic event.

3. Clubs/teams score points based upon the ranking of their 7 best runners in total in the above mentioned classes in Spring Cup Classic.

a. In each class the runners are given point corresponding to their time. The winner of a class gets 2000 points. Other runners get one point less for each second he/she is after the winner. Hence, a runner 20 seconds slower than the winner of a class gets 2000-20=1980 points.
b. If a runner is more than 2000 seconds after the winner he/she gets 0 points.
c. The point total of the club/team is calculated as the sum of the 7 runners scoring the most points.
- If club/team has more than 7 runners in total in the 6 classes, only the top 7 counts
- If a club/team has less than 7 runners in the 6 classes, all runners count
d. The maximum number of points are 2000x7=14000 points
4. The Clubs/Teams with the most points win.

5. Prizes to the top 5 clubs/teams are awarded.

1. Prize 10000 DKK
2. Prize 6000 DKK
3. Prize 4000 DKK
4. Prize 2500 DKK
5. Prize 1000 DKK
6. If 2 or more clubs/teams of the top 5 score the same number of points their prizes are divided into equal parts between the winners. Example: If 2 teams score to reach 3rd place the prizes for 3rd and 4th places are shared equally between the 2 teams, each getting (4000+2500)/2 = 3250 DKK.
