# Trail Mix Standings

## Latest 2024 Trail Mix Series Recap is here

### Men’s standings are here

In 2024 the series consists of seven races. Runners who run at least FOUR of the race to compete in the series are eligible for automatic selection upon entry to the Leatherman’s Loop Lottery in January 2025.

Scoring for the series is calculated according to the formula below:

• Runners are only scored on their best four of seven races.
• Runners with 3 or fewer races after the final race is complete are not scored for the series.
• Men and Women are scored separately.
• Runners will be scaled from 50-100 points in each race they compete in.
• the top male runner and top female runner receive 100 points.
• the bottom male runner and bottom female runner receive 50 points.
• all male runners in between will be given a scaled score from 100 to 50 points based on their finish position among male runners.
• all female runners in between will be given a scaled score from 100 to 50 points based on their finish position among female runners.
• points are added together from series races to get to a runner’s total series points score
• runners with more than 4 races count only their best 4, enabling them to drop their lowest point race(s).
• This method ensures large running fields and small running fields are given equal weight in scoring the series.

Example 1:

Male Runner A finishes 75th in a field of 500 men in the Leatherman’s Loop.

His scaled points for the Loop are calculated as follows:

• [(total runners – runner A’s place + 1) ÷ total runners] * 50 {our scale factor} + 50 {our base points}
• [(500-75+1) ÷ 500] * 50 + 50
• = 42.6 + 50
• = 92.6 total Trail Mix points for the Loop

Example 2:

Female Runner B finishes 1st in a field of 200 women in the Leatherman’s Loop.

Her scaled points for the Loop are calculated as follows:

• [(total runners – runner B’s place + 1) ÷ total runners] * 50 {our scale factor} + 50 {our base points}
• [(200-1+1) ÷ 200] * 50 + 50
• = 50 + 50
• = 100 total Trail Mix points for the Loop

Example 3:

Female Runner C finishes 75th in a field of 100 women in A Mild Sprain.

Her scaled points for the A Mild Sprain are calculated as follows:

• [(total runners – runner C’s place + 1) ÷ total runners] * 50 {our scale factor} + 50 {our base points}
• [(100-75+1) ÷ 100] * 50 + 50
• = 13 + 50
• = 63.00 total Trail Mix points for A Mild Sprain

Check the Women’s points totals or the Men’s points totals to see the scoring system in action.

We do track all possible competitors for the series unless they are eliminated from possible completion by not running in enough races.

• Everyone who runs in at least one of the first (three) four races could potentially complete four races in the series by the (sixth) seventh race.
• We will track all runners of the first 4 races showing their points totals and average points per race run here.
• Once we get past the fifth race, runners with only one completed race will be eliminated from scoring to simplify the list since there will be only two remaining races at that point and no way for runners with only one race completed to catch up.
• Once we get past the 6th race, runners with only two completed races will be eliminated so everyone knows where they stand for the final race: The Raven Rocks Run.
