    General Classification
    The GC champion has the highest season base points average.
    Monarch of the Mountains
    Arguably one of the toughest classifications. Any run over 1.8Km qualifies for special climbing points. This is calculated as a function of base points & elevation gain gradient
    This classification takes your base points for distances 1 & 1.5Km and formats them in to a ranked league.
    Any run of 5Km or over qualifies for special endurance points. This is calculated as a function of base points & distance up to 15Km
    Your series of runs are also included in the Hexathlon. A series of 6 events (4 x fixed distances, 1 x Climb and 1 x Endurance) The purpose of the Hexathlon is a 6 event test of you and your dog(s) all-round capabilities.
    At the end of the season you will have earned a points handicap. This allows you to participate on a level playing field knockout tournament. You have an equal chance to walk away as a champion !
