Athletes also have the opportunity to gain additional points based on their placement at TNL competitions (age groups are different at UNAA and TNL competitions so only participation points at those).
1st place = +4 points
2nd place = +3 points
3rd place = +2 points
4th place = +1 points
Qualifying for championships…
5 points minimum and you qualify for finals. Any points over 5 will be a factor in deciding run order at finals.
Qualifying format is at gyms own direction so make sure to read their rules about how many courses they may have, time frame, scoring system, etc. Obstacles must have a clearly marked start and finish for each obstacle at each qualifying competition as well as finals.
Finals format will be a single course based on completion, one mulligan (a redo), and time will be the tie breaker. A time limit will be set by the facility and the athlete will be done when the time runs out regardless of what obstacle they are on. Run order for finals will be based on the points accumulated by each athlete throughout the season. The athletes with the most points will run the course last, and the athletes with the last amount of points will run the course first.
