Points are increased by 2 factors:

  1. the difficulty linked to the kilometers ran;
  2. the performance linked to the finish time of each distance race winners.

The Difficulty Factor

The difficulty factor aims to give more points for more kilometers. Consequently, it takes the distance ran into account.

The Performance Factor

Performance factor aims to take partipants into account for each distance race. Therefore, to give more points to those who take part in a distance race in which we find very good runners compared to races with no such runners.

This performance factor is a percentage established between reference times* and each distance finishing time. This factor is then applied to every runners of each distance race.

The reference times used are the world records for each distance race (ref : www.iaaf.org).
