SteveAlden_Ardingly_2009.jpgThe BAR (Best All Rounder) competition returns for 2016 to test the metal of club members against a gruelling series of local events.

Competition scoring

The competition awards consistency, the details of the scoring are:

The fastest MSTC man and lady get 10 points, 2nd fastest 9 points, 3rd - 8 points etc. If more than 10 compete then every competitor gets 1 point once the first 9 have been awarded.

In this competition all the races count - and the winners are the male and female athletes with the highest cumulative scores. In the past the winners have tended to be the most consistent athletes.
