The Winter Championship (Cowper Trophy) will be competed for in a new format for season 2016-17 with 16 races on a mixture of road and cross country starting September 2016 and ending March 2017.
The scoring format for the 2016-17 winter competition will be as follows:
10 points for 1st place, 8 points for 2nd place, 6 points for 3rd place, 5 points for 4th place, 4 points for 5th place, 3 points for 6th place, 2 points for 7th place and 1 point for all remaining competitors.
Your 12 best scores will count towards your overall total.
National Championships and some other selected races will offer double points (these are highlighted in bold below)
For any event with different distances such as 10k and half marathon full points will be awarded treating both as separate races. This is the same for the National Road Relays.
In handicap events scoring will be based on net times.
