RANKINGS & PRIZES
2023 CASH PRIZES
You know what’s almost as awesome as spending your summer doing adventure races? COLD. HARD. CASH. Teams that participate in 3 or more RMAS races will be eligible for end-of-year series cash prizes! How many races is your team signed up for?!
(NOTE: Cash prizes have changed.)
End of season CASH Prizes for teams with most points accrued:
2-person (coed or open):
- Teams must compete in 3 or more races in a single category to be eligible
- Points do not accumulate between different categories if you use the same team name
- 3/4-person teams may have a roster of 5 different racers
- 2-person teams may have a roster of 3 different racers
- Teams acquire points based on the point system explained below.
- Teams must register with the same team name (and spelling) for each race to help assure that your team’s points track correctly.
Points will be awarded according to the USARA formula.
Points are determined using a sliding scale (standard distribution) dependent on the published length of the race.
- <= 7 hours: 1st = 25 points
- <= 15 hours: 1st = 50 points
- <= 36 hours: 1st = 100 points
- <= 72 hours: 1st = 125 points
- > 72 hours: 1st = 150 points
Teams are then awarded points based on their OVERALL finish place in the race (regardless of division) based on the logarithmic distribution:
Team_Points = Max_Points_For_Race_Length * (1 – LN(Team_Finish_Place) * 0.24)
This gives the following distributions. Any team that finishes the race gets a minimum of 2 points. DNFs get 1 point.
