Cross country style scoring will be used to determine each team’s score. For each team, the top 5 finishers according to their place in their age group will be combined for that team’s race score. In case of a tie, the team’s next non-scoring runner with the fastest time will be used as the tiebreaker. The winning team will be awarded 10 long sleeve MRTR shirts in various sizes.
