Club League Rules

The club league awards points to all SUFFOC members who run a course as an individual at a colour coded or regional event where there are at least 8 SUFFOC members or the event is an East Anglian League.
 
Points are calculated thus:
1
The length of the course is adjusted for height climbed Adjusted length = length in km + (climb in m/100)
2
Your pace (in min/km) is calculated Pace = time/adj length of course
3
Your pace is multiplied by your age factor and your TD factor Adjusted pace = pace x TD factor x age factor/100
4
Your adjusted pace is compared with the fastest SUFFOC pace and awarded points thus: Points = (fastest adj pace/your adj pace) x 100
5
Total score is the sum of your best 6 scores.  
6
Planners, organisers and controllers receive the average of their best 6 scores.
 
Notes:  
  The league will run for a calendar year.
  The source of age factors is Stragglers league
If you run the correct TD course for your age, your TD factor is 1.
You are penalised for running an easier course and rewarded for running a harder course.
Juniors' points are calculated in the same way but have a separate league.
