As from 2015, all members of participating clubs will be eligible to score points at any of the races that form the series.
Points are awarded according to the runner's finishing position, 1st place earns 500 points, 2nd place 499, and so on. The scoring is separate for males and females.
Individual's points totals are obtained from a runner's best 8 scoring races.
These 8 races must include at least 2 races of 10 miles or more (runners over 70 and under 18 will not have to run 2 long races).
Runners' individual points allocation also form the team scores for each club; the top 10 men and 10 ladies (vets top 5 men, top 5 ladies) are counted.
