I’m already going through leaderboard withdrawal, @Challengers, but I’ve kept busy with post-Challenge wrapup. Yesterday I picked up all the course markers (which weathered the year wonderfully), and today I populated a spreadsheet with what I believe are all the prize winners. We ended up with 194 prizes all told, divided among 38 winners!
Since there was quite a bit of copying and pasting to move all the data over, it’s entirely possible that I’ve made a mistake somewhere along the way. So if you think you should have won one or more prizes, please check the FLRC Challenge Prize Calculator in Google Sheets and let me know if anything seems amiss.
A few notes:
Refer to the FLRC Challenge Prizes page for details on who wins what and how that’s calculated. Even though we had only 194 runners, I calculated the prizes as though we had 200 to make for even numbers. The per-runner multipliers remain set at 50¢ for the overall points and miles winners and 5¢ for all the rest except for the age-group winners, whose multiplier is 2.5¢.
If you search on your name using your browser’s search capability, it will highlight all instances so you can scroll through and check everything. I spot-checked a number of them, so I believe my formulas are correct, but let me know if you see a problem.
A few people won the same prize, such as Pete Kresock and Karen Ingall tying for Most Miles and Ruth Sproul and Anne Shakespeare running together for a number of the courses and thus both winning the 60+ age group prizes.
For the winning @Thundering-30s team, I selected the top ten runners through the intersection of the top age grade scorers and those who logged the most runs. That matches up with how the team scoring works with a combination of age grading and most runs.
Any questions, feel free to ask!
