North Island Cups – Points System

Upon entry, you will nominate whether you would like your points to go
towards winning the men’s North Island Sprint Cup or North Island Endurance
Cup, or women’s North Island Sprint Cup or North Island Endurance Cup.

You can enter as many events as you would like, however, only points earned
in the sprint category of races will go towards the North Island sprint cup, and
only points earned in the endurance category of races will go towards the
North Island endurance cup.
You must enter a minimum of 3 sprint races to be eligible for the North Island
sprint cup, and a minimum of 3 endurance races to be eligible for the North
Island endurance cup.

The programme includes a column to record points earned, and there will be
updates on points totals throughout the carnival.

Maximum points available per event for each grade, division or category
(based on maximum entry numbers).
