2016 Four Seasons Chase - March Standings ( Posted Sun March 13 )

The following are the Standings for the 2016 Four Seasons Chase after the March event. For an event that was missed, the average of the three slowest times on the applicable course is added to an individuals time. The other adjustment is for those who get less than the full number of controls for a course, their average leg time for that course is used to extrapolate their total time at that event for all controls. For any DSQs (lost punch card etc), you will receive either your finish time or the penalty time, whichever is worse.

Only those eligible (missed 3 or fewer events (75% participation)) will be posted here.
