Join us for the Post-season final of the 2012 Boston Park Series!
This event has PRE-ASSIGNED START TIMES! If you are running the advanced course, it's very important that you show up on time! (More details below)
We do accept post entries, but please try to pre-register as early as possible. It helps us plan for printing
enough maps, which are printed the night before the event.
We're all set for the grand finale of the 2012 Boston Park Series this Thursday at Pine Banks Park in Melrose. It's looking to be an exciting race and we'll be having a cookout afterwards, so bring some food to share and plan on hanging out for a bit afterwards.
The format for the finals will be a chasing start, which will mean that the first person across the finish line is the winner. To make it a fair race, we have seeded the start list based on the results of the series. This means that YOU MUST SHOW UP AT YOUR PRE-ASSIGNED START TIME! Otherwise we will start you when you arrive. Check the series standings for your start time.
Mathematical details on the seeding: The start list is seeded to make it a fair race by giving everyone a start time such that they "should" finish at 7pm, based on their performance during the series. In addition to the base seeding, we've given everyone a time bonus based on their overall standings at the end of the series (sum of your best 6 of 8 races). Specifically, your estimated time is scaled by your average score to the estimated winning time of 20 minutes, and you are given a time bonus of 3 minutes times your final score divided by a "maximum" score of 600 points.
Example: if your average score per race is 80 pts and you made it to 4 races for a total of 320pts, your start time is 7pm - (20min * 100pts/80pts) - (3min * 320pts/600pts) = 6:33:24pm. Any questions?
