Please arrived at least 20' early to warm up and get race number, also Men should arrive at the start of women race to cheers on 🔥!
This is how the scoring works 🏅:
All races are scored on a reverse scoring basis, i.e. if there are 50 athletes in a race, the first finisher shall score 50 points, the 50th finisher 1 point.
So your time doesn't matter, it's your finishing position, at the moment you do an amazing sprint finish you'll do well :D #SPRINT
