What would your club, gym or group of work mates do with $500 cash?

New for 2019, the Great Southern Team Challenge is open to running clubs, gyms, your work place or other sporting clubs.

There are 3 tiers of competition so you don’t necessarily have to be the biggest or fastest team to win!  Accumulate points for finishing, with bonuses for the top 20 males & females in the half marathon and 10K races.

Prize Money

Prize money is awarded to the highest scoring team in each of the following categories:

Large Teams 26+ $500
Medium Teams 11-25 $200
Small Teams 5-10 $100

Scoring

Points are earned by every member of your team, whether they run or walk the half marathon or 10K, whether they cross the line in first place or last.  As long as you finish before the 12:30 cut-off your score will count towards your team total.  There is no limit to the number of members you can have in your team.

The first male and first female finishers in the half marathon will score 40 points, 2nd place will score 39 points, 3rd place will score 38 points, etc down to 21 points for the 20th placed male and 20th placed female.  Thereafter, each finisher from 21st place onwards will score 20 points.

The first male and first female finishers in the 10K will score 30 points, 2nd place will score 29 points, 3rd place will score 28 points, etc down to 11 points for the 20th placed male and 20th placed female. Thereafter, each finisher from 21st place onwards will score 10 points.

The team score is calculated by adding all scores from nominated male and female team members in both the half marathon and 10K races.  The team with the highest aggregate score in each of the 3 categories will walk away with a cash prize.
