Tube Challenge Parkrun World Cup

Post by Soup Dragon » 17 Mar 2019, 21:36

The rules are simple for the first World Cup.

Each tie will be decided on the fastest runner from that weeks Parkrun results.
If the tie only has one person who ran, that person will get a walk-over.
If neither person in the tie ran, then countback comes into play, the runner with the most recent run wins the tie.
If countback is used and both runners countback to the same week then the runner with the fastest time progresses.
If times are tied then the countback rule will be applied to determine the winner.

Here is the first round draw, seedings (in brackets) are based on the Seasons Best times of 2019.
