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.

Rounds 1 & 3-6 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.

In Round 2 (WaveCross) those athletes who are knocked out in quarter-final or semi-final rounds will be awarded an average pointscore of those eliminated positions. i.e. The 8 athletes eliminated in quarter-final round will be awarded average points of places 9 through 16 (68 points / 8 athletes).

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.  

  1.  If both athletes are tied on 100 points. i.e. if 2 athletes are tied on 100 points and athlete A has the following places R1 – 1st , R2 – 1st, R3 – 6th, R4 – 5th, R5 – 6th, R6 – 7th he/she will prevail over athlete B with the following places R1 – 2nd, R2 – 3rd, R3 – 1st R4 – 6th R5 – 9th R6 – 5th
  2.  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 100 points and athlete A has the following places R1 – 1st , R2 – 1st, R3 – 1st, R4 – 2nd, R5 – 2nd, R6 – 19th he/she will prevail over athlete B with the following places R1 – 18th, R2 – 3rd, R3 – 2nd, R4 – 1st, R5 – 1st, R6 – 1st. This process will continue to include all 6 rounds.
  3. If athletes cannot be split on points or positions across all 6 rounds – the athlete with the highest places in the 6th Round will prevail. i.e. if both athletes are tied on 100 points and Athlete A has the following places R1 – 3rd, R2 – 11th, R3 – 9th, R4 – 1st, R5 – 1st, R6 – 1st, he/she will prevail over Athlete B who has recorded the following places R1 – 1st, R2 – 1st, R3 – 1st, R4 – 11th, R5 – 9th, R6 – 3rd.
