The Mob Run

The Mob Run is a club/team competition, and the "rules" are as follows:

  1. Teams can be of any size, any description and made up of any type of runner. There are no limits. In fact the teams need not be formally recognised teams or clubs, just maybe the bunch of people you train with, as an example.
  2. There is only one "Mob Run" award and it will be awarded to the overall team winner ie there is not a separate prize for males/females or age catgory teams.
  3. There is no need for members of a team to enter together. When you submit your entry form, you state in the space provided which team you are part of. The race director will then track how many runners are participating under that team name.
  4. No checks will be made on actual membership of clubs, we will base team membership purely on the runners entry form.
  5. You can only have your run count for one team. If you are a member of more than one team, you have to choose which one to represent. If you still try to write more than one team name on the entry form, the first one written will count as the team selected.
  6. Every runner who completes the run within the cutoff time will score for their team depending on how far up the field they finish. The first placed runner receives the same number of points as there were entrants. The 2nd placed runer receives 1 point less, and so on. If all runners finished the race within the cutoff, the last runner would score 1 point.
  7. Runners that drop out or who miss the cut off score 0 points.
  8. The sweepers' times still count, even though they usually finish after the cutoff.
  9. As the participation of females is so much less than males, their points will count double.
  10. The team with the most points wins. This need not be the team with the most runners, but the team with the "most best" runners.
  11. If you forgot to write your team name on your entry form, or want to change teams (check entrants here), then you can do so in writing (email or via post - see our contact details). You can change your mind up to the week of the event, but absolutely not on the day.

The Mob Run will be a regular fixture for each annual Six Foot Track, and the winning team will be awarded a perpetual trophy, that will have their team name engraved.

The Sydney Striders Running Club are long and faithful supporters of the event and have agreed to donate the trophy.
