1st – 10, 2nd – 8, 3rd – 6, 4th – 5, 5th – 4, 6th – 3, 7th – 2, 8th onwards – 1

    • A walker can nominate (and be counted for points) in a higher age group. They can make the nomination at the start of the season (for the whole of the season) or event by event.
    • If no different age group is nominated, the walker will participate in their actual age group.
  • Points are only scored if the walker participates in the distance for their age or longer. If participating in shorter distances they are a “reserve” and do not count in placing and points.
    • To be eligible for an award, walkers must have participated in at least 5 point scoring events.
