S10.run rating math
The most democratic running rating in the world.
Beginners and fast runners have equal chances of winning.
Women and vintage runners get extra points.
The rating determines the place of a "lifetime good runner" in the running community. It takes into account gender, age, progress, absolute results, awards and regularity. The rating is based on progress / regress points.
How is the rating calculated?
The rating consists of the following components:
B1 - competitive experience points
B2 - progress points
B3 - absolute result points
B4 - prize-winning bonus
B5 - age bonus
B6 - personal record bonus
B7 - platform bonus
Experience points. Each race gives 10 experience points. If the participant does not take part in any race for the calendar month, his rating is reduced by 5 points.
Progress points. We calculate the M0 parameter - the place in the protocol normalized to 100. If you take 10th place in a race with a hundred participants and 100th place in a race with a thousand, then the normalized place is 10.

We calculate the M1 parameter - the mathematical expectation of a place in the protocol. This is an average place in the previous protocols. The previous race has the biggest influence on this coefficient, and each race that took place earlier contributes less and less to the mathematical expectation. The value starts to be calculated from the 3rd race. Weighting results is based on the days that have passed since the previous race.

B2 is the percentage difference between the mathematical expectation and the actual place in the finish protocol. If you move from the 100th place in the protocol to the 50th, that means you move 50% forward. So, you receive 50 progress points. The same happens when moving from 4th place to 2nd. If you move from 2nd to 4th place, you receive 50 regress points.
Absolute result points. We calculate how far the participant's place is from the end of the protocol. For the 1st place, the participant receives 99 points, for the last - 0. These points are included in the final rating with a coefficient of 0.2
Prize-winning bonus. The 1st place gives 100 points, the 2nd - 50, the 3rd - 25, the 4th - 17, the 5th - 9, the 6th - 5. These points are included in the final rating with a coefficient of 0.3
Age bonus. Archive parameter. We calculate the difference in time between the world records of age groups at different distances as a percentage. Starting from the age of 30, we reduce the result of a participant by the coefficient obtained from the calculation of world records regression. The regression considers distance, gender and age. Taking into account the regression, we form an age protocol. The B5 coefficient is the difference in points between the absolute and the age protocol.

The parameter was archived because rating competitions began to be held with one gender-age protocol. The results of women and older athletes are included in the protocol, taking into account regression.
Personal record bonus. Based on the previous results, the platform calculates the expected time at the current start. If the result exceeds the expected time, the participant receives 40 points. The 1st run in the rating always gives 40 welcome points and becomes the basis for calculating personal records in future starts. The base for calculating a personal record is transferred from season to season. So, in the 1st race of a new season, 40 points are awarded only to those who did not participate in the races of previous seasons.
Platform bonus. Some races require extra effort from the participants. This could be bringing participants to the Challenge, organizing offline races, winning offline races, or other efforts aimed at running development. "A lifetime good runner" should not only run fast, but also inspire others to do sports. B7 is appointed by a Race Director.
Rating of coaches
The coach's rating is equal to the average place of his students in the rating.
The rating is calculated if a coach has more than two students in the rating who paid for the coach's services. Payment for the services is an indicator of active coach-to-student work
Rating of participants in team competitions
Each team member receives the same number of points according to the place taken by the team.
Bonuses for a personal record are given to each participant individually based on the result of his race, unless otherwise specified in the competition rules.
Every week we organize different competitions starting with two kilometers and ending up with a marathon. It could be a smooth run, a "last one out", a relay race or another formula. Our goal is to find universal runners who are ready to run at any moment, any distance in any conditions. So, we are looking for "lifetime good runners."
How does it work?
Progress/regress points moderate the impact of randomly high or randomly low results. If something goes wrong and you run worse than expected, then you get a low mathematical expectation for the next race. Performing to the best of your ability gives you extra progress points and returns you to your rightful place in the rating.

Regular progress quickly moves you up the rating due to the fact that you get progress points by showing results above the mathematical expectation.

The higher you are in the rating, the harder it is to get progress points. It is impossible to get progress points in the first place, but it is very easy to get 50 regression points in the second place.

Getting to the top while constantly progressing is not difficult. It is difficult to stay there. Thus, the rating quickly places the participants, determining their position in the running community. The rating takes into account gender and age of the athletes.
The rating is updated every week. Sometimes intermediate results are marked with awards and gifts.
