PR Score Virtual Competition

The PR Score system awards points for every PR set by any runner on the team over the course of their season, weighted to reflect how many runners are on the team and how often they compete. Athletes and coaches can see how they rank against other teams in setting PRs at the national and state level.

What’s unique about the score is that it is based entirely on improvement. “The slowest kid on the team has equal weight on the score at the end of the year,” says DeKoker—provided that kid gets better and sets PRs. The freshman breaking 13 minutes in the 3200m for the first time adds as many points as the senior winning the race with a nine-something personal best.
