A team consists of a minimum of 5 runners. Employees may register immediate family members as team members, who will count towards the minimum of 5 runners.
To create a level playing field, we’re creating three classes (tiers) based on number of runners (employees and immediate family members) registered to run for the company:
Class 1: Teams with 5 - 20 runners
Class 2: Teams with 21 - 40 runners
Class 3: Teams with more than 41 runners
- Participants who complete the half marathon will earn 13 points towards the team total
- Participants who complete the 5K will earn 5 points towards the team total
- Once all points have been tallied, the team point total will be divided by the number of runners on the team to determine the team’s score
- A team with 18 team members has 7 runners complete the half marathon and 11 runners complete the 5K will earn 146 points [(7 x 13) + (11 x 5)]. The team score is 8.11 [146 points divided by 18]
- A team with 18 team members has 3 runners complete the half marathon and 15 runners complete the 5K will earn 114 points [(3 x 13) + (15 x 5)]. The team score is 6.33 [114 points divided by 18]
- A team with 7 team members has 2 runners complete the half marathon and 5 runners complete the 5K will earn 51 points [(2 x 13) + (5 x 5)]. The team score is 7.85 [51 points divided by 7]
- A team with 7 team members has 5 runners complete the half marathon and 2 runners complete the 5K will earn 75 points [(5 x 13) + (2 x 5)]. The team score is 10.71 [75 points divided by 7]
In case of a tie, the winner in the class will be the team with the lowest collective time.
Prizes in each of the three classes:
- 2nd Runner Up
Prizes will include wandering trophies for the class winners and special experiences at the Rose Bowl. The three winning teams and runner-up’s will be recognized in Pasadena Magazine and at a Pasadena Chamber of Commerce function.
