How to Score Points

The maximum points that can be scored in any race by an age group winner is 4,000. The age group winners in any AbbottWMM race – the Tokyo, Boston, Virgin Money London, BMW BERLIN, Bank of America Chicago and TCS New York City Marathons – will automatically get 4,000 points. The. minumum amount of points that can be scored is 1,000.

Any age group athlete who is within 29 seconds of the age group winning time in an AbbottWMM race receives 10 points less, earning 3990 points. Runners within 30-59 seconds of the winning time receive 20 points less, and those earning times within 1 minute and 29 seconds less than the age group winning time receive 30 points less, and so on.

Runners can earn points for their performances in marathons beyond the six AbbottWMM races, provided the event is an official AbbottWMM Wanda Age Group World Ranking qualifying race.
