There is no minimum number of races to attend.
Only the final race of the AG Series is mandatory to participate.
2023 Point system (similar as 2022):
All races are scored using a 1,000 point system. Points are assigned based on an athlete's final place and their gender, within their specified age group category.
Points are calculated using the following formula.
1st Place Age Group Finishers Time (Minutes)/Your Finish Time (Minutes) x 1000 = Total Points Score
1st Place Age Group Time - 60:00 Minutes
Your Time - 72:00 Minutes
60/72 x 1000 = 833 Points
Competitors ranked below 1,000 place in their Age Group will not earn any points.
