Round 1 consists of a 2.5Km qualifier. The purpose of which is to quantity the volume of entrants and the second purpose is to define the seeding for the knockout stages.

Round 2 consists of a single heat where all participants run. The nearest binary number below the quantity of entrants will go through to the knockout starting round 3. e.g. 47 participants ran round 2 therefore the top 32 racers will qualify for round 3, or 79 participants ran round 2 therefore the top 64 racers will qualify for round 3. (Note Top means the top points scorers after handicap). The league retains the right to leap to an even lower binary numbers for the sake of round timing and expediancy.

Round 3 onwards. This is a seeded straight forward knockout. Top seed races (virtually) against bottom seed. The highest scorers after handicap progresses to the next round and so forth, until the final.
