Once you finish, you will turn in your scorecard at the registration table. Results will be tabulated on-site. In each event, first place receives 100 points, second receives 95, and it continues to fall by 5 points through fifth place, which is worth 80 points. From sixth to 20th place, the drop is 2 points: sixth is worth 78 points, seventh is 76, and so on. Then from 21st place on, the drop is 1 point: 21st gets 49 points, 22nd gets 48, etc. This means that participating in an event guarantees you points, and skipping means leaving points on the table.
During the closing ceremony, the top three competitors in each event will be announced, as well as the top “respect” competitor in each event. The individual event winners and the top three overall competitors with the highest total points receive custom awards.
