Why are the recreation league points different to other leagues and competitions ?

The recreation league is a fun league run all-year round. It is (supposedly), much less competitive. It is somewhere to log your points as a focal point for social runs, networking, having a bit of a laugh, and evaluating you and your dog's training. The points system is much simpler with a combination of age-grade, climbing and endurance being all factored in. Because it is a fun league the emphasis is not so serious on intense competition. Therefore the points, as you run higher, and further, there becomes less points incentive to go to the limit. This is good for both you and your dog.
