A new year brings a new championship table, and as always, myself and Chris Matthews have been working to improve the way results are calculated.
One of the issues with the results in previous years is the LPF score for individuals being based ont he course length, but not the course terrain. As a result, flat road races always gave higher scores than trail or hilly races. So events such as the Murder mile gave a very low LPF score, disadvantaging those who ran it.
The new calculation takes into consideration the average peformance for the event, and ensures the average LPF per event is the same for the whole championship. As a result we should see a more competitive LPF table this year, and every event will be equally as important in getting that coveted trophy!
