The points system for the 2017 'championship' will differ slightly from the system used in 2016. B and C races of a single event with a high degree of difficulty (e.g. a 100km race when there is also a 100 miles race) will be better rewarded with performance points. At the same time we stick to our principle “simple and easy to calculate while you run”.
General rule: The points system is designed to be easily understood on purpose. Runners score points in each Asia Trail Master series race that they finish, as long as the race distance qualifies for Asia Trail Master points (see conditions). Finishers score two kinds of points:
More than 1 race distance at the same event
Multiple-day stage trail races
Final ATM Championship Ranking at the end of the year
Joint points total in final Championship Ranking
The Championship Ranking will be filtered by gender and by nationality
The Asia Trail Master ranking will be updated immediately after each race, and published on the ATMs website via http://m.racetimingsolutions.com/rankings , followed by a press release.
Runner A takes part in Penang Eco 100 and finishes 24th on the longest distance race - 100 miles - of the event.
Runner B takes part in the Tengri Ultra Trail and finishes 5th on the B-distance race of the event
Runner C takes part in Ijen Trailrunning and finishes 2nd on the B-distance of 70 km
Even if you are not the fastest runner, your perseverance will also be rewarded over time. Read on how you can earn the title of Grandmaster
The regulations and points system for the 2017 Asia Trail Master series will thus be slightly modified compared to this year. The most important changes will be that the best five results count for the final ranking instead of the best three, and that tough B-distance races of certain events will be better rewarded with points.
