Eligibility Rules & Time Calculation

We take the times of the top 3 eligible male members of your team to arrive at your Male Team time and place, and the same with the top 3 eligible females. In addition to the overall winning male and female teams, we have trophies in a number of industry categories as well as individual awards for the overall winners and the fastest CEO.

To be an eligible team member, the person must be a bona fide full or part-time employee of the company or a full or part-time contractor working exclusively for that company. Any business or organisation can register a team, but to be eligible for team awards, the organisation must meet the criteria for team members to be earning a living from that organisation. Therefore, sports clubs, groups of friends and other informal teams cannot be eligible for team awards. Any participant who is not an eligible team member must be marked as “FNF” (Friends & Family) on the team sheet.

Anyone taking part in the event is eligible to win the overall male and female individual trophies.

To be eligible for the CEO Challenge trophy, the person must be the CEO, Managing Director or a Senior Partner of the business or organisation and must be recorded as such on the official entry form, team sheet or online form.

Competition Rules

  • Merit Awards will be based on Gun Time (i.e. the order of the athletes across the finish line)
  • Official results published will be by Net Time (the time difference between the athlete crossing the start line and the finish line)
  • In the unlikely event of any dispute, the Race Director’s decision shall be final
