All clubs with at least five declared male finishers or five declared female finishers are scored as teams in NYRR races that are under 25K in length. All clubs with at least three declared male finishers or three declared female finishers are scored as teams in NYRR races that are 25K or more. The top three men’s and women’s clubs are listed in the results of all NYRR scored races, and those clubs receive awards. Club scoring procedures are different for club points races.
A club’s finishing place in a scored race is determined by adding the finishing times of the scoring members. The club with the lowest combined time is first, the club with the second-lowest combined time is second, and so on.
