Qualifying criteria
U18 Best 3 short races
U23, Open, V40 and V50 5 best races to count which must include at least one from each distance and one away race

Scoring system:

In any of the qualifying races, all Mercia Fell Runners participants will be ranked according to where they finished in the race, regardless of gender or age category. The highest placed Mercia FR runner will be given 1 point, the 2nd highest placed will be given 2 points, and so on… until all Mercia participants have been given a points score. All these scores will be tabulated and added to scores from previous races.

Ultimately, the participant in any age category with the lowest score throughout the championship series will be the champion in that category, subject to the removal of discard scores.

In the event of a tie in any age category, places in the final table will be decided on a head2head basis, i.e. who has been the higher finisher on most occasions when the 2 (or more) tied runners have competed in the same races.
