Scoring Explained Below:

aggies1st place correctly picked – 100 points.
2nd place correctly picked – 50 points
3rd place correctly picked – 30 points
Correctly picking a person in the top 3 but in the wrong position – 25 points
4th place correctly picked – 15 points
Having one of your picks for the top 5 finish in the top 5 in any order –  10 points in addition to the ones above.
Having one of your picks for the top 10 finish in the top 10 in any order –  5 points in addition to the ones above.
(So if you get first dead on, you’ll actually get 115 points (100 + 10 + 5) for that pick.)
-1 point for each spot one of your picks in the top 10 that finishes in the top 10 is off from its actual spot (but you can’t get negative points on a pick). So if you pick someone 2nd and they finish 7th (or worse), you would get 0 points (5 points for a top 10 pick but lose a max of 5 points for them being 7th or worse) for this person. If you pick someone 2nd and they finish 6th you get 1 point on this person (5 points for top 5 – 4 points for them being 6th instead of 2nd = 1 point total). If you pick someone in the top 10 and they finish out of the top 10 you get 0 points for them.

If there is a tie overall, the first tie breaker is who is closest to the men’s or women’s overall winning time. Then we’ll first see who picked the most spots perfectly correctly on either the men’s or women’s side, then we’ll see who had the most runners in the top 10 in the top 10 on both sides of the competition, then we’ll have a drawing between all of the people still tied. If there is a tie in the men’s or women’s competition we’ll do the tiebreaker above but restrict it to the men’s or women’s competition.
