What are the rules?
You set a target distance that your team will cover in 50 minutes. You can change your target until 18th May 2 pm.
The target could be in multiples of 100 mtrs.
Two runners in the team run for 100 minutes in a relay format one after the other.
You run in a loop of 1.6 kms (1 Mile)
Runner A in the team starts the run, completes the loop, hands over the baton to Runner B.
Runner B now runs the same loop and comes back to hand over the baton to Runner A again.
This continues for 50 minutes.
Once 100 minutes are over, the runner on the track stops at or between the check points on the track. The track will have check points every 200 mtrs.
The team covering the maximum distance and meeting the target, wins!
Any bonuses, penalties?
Yes, of course!

If you have a female participant in the team, you get a bonus of 10% of the distance you actually cover on the race day after deducting penalties and adding bonuses.
If a team has both the female participants, then the bonus will be 20% of the distance the team actualle covers on the race day after deducting penalties and adding bonuses.
No bonus if you meet your set target.
If you run less than your target, then half of the difference will be deducted from your actual distance covered. For example, if your target was 20 kms and you ran 19 kms, then the difference between the target and the actual distance covered would be 1 kms. Thus, 500 mtrs would be deducted from the actual distance covered and you will get 18.5 kms.
The above rule applies also in case you cover more than the target. For example, if your target was 20 kms, and you ran 21 kms, then you get 20.5 kms.
