Nutri-Grain Series

Point Scoring

Nutri-Grain Iron Series Point Scoring

The 2020/21  Kellogg’s Nutri-Grain IronMan and IronWoman Series will be conducted with the following point score system to ensure individual round winners are recognised and rewarded. It will also provide an overall leader board that reflects the most consistent athletes in the Nutri-Grain Series.

Every round will be a simple 20 to one-point score however, if an athlete fails to finish, or is disqualified in a round then they will receive no points for that round.

The overall Nutri-Grain Iron Series point score will be decided over the best six results of each athlete.

The Nutri-Grain Next Gen Series will also operate on the same point scoring system.

Specialist and Super Sprint Rounds

Specialist and Super Sprint Rounds contain multiple races (Super Sprint – 3 races and Specialist – 4 races). For each of these races a progressive point score will be kept.

  • 1st – 20 points, 
  • 2nd – 19 points, 
  • 3rd – 18 points etc. numerically through to last place. 
  • Nil points – if an athlete fails to start, fails to finish or is disqualified in a race. 

The final placings for the Specialist and Super Sprint Rounds will be decided on the cumulative point score after all races have been decided for that round. A further overall final point score for that round will then be awarded based on the final cumulative point score. 

Countback procedure

In the event that athletes are tied at the conclusion of the individual races in The Specialist Rounds and/or Super Sprint Rounds, a countback procedure based on each athlete’s highest placing in each of the races will be conducted. i.e. Super Sprint Round – If 2 athletes are tied on 43 points and Athlete A has the following places R1 – 1st, R2 – 9th, R3 – 10th he/she will prevail over Athlete B with the following places R1 – 2nd, R2 – 3rd, R3 – 15th.  

If both athletes were again tied after this process the countback will continue to their next best place. i.e. If 2 athletes are tied on 43 points and Athlete A has the following places H1 – 1st, H2 – 2nd, H3 – 17th, he/she will prevail over Athlete B with the following places H1 – 3rd, H2 – 1st, H3 – 16th. 

In the remote chance athletes are still tied after the countback procedure has been applied across all of the races. The athlete with the highest place in the last race of the round will prevail.
