Performances

All starters who sign up until April 15, 2017 receive a pair of biketrikot in the MME design.

The title "MarathonMan 2017" will be only awarded to those bikers who finish at least three races mastering more than 300km. The "MarathonMan Certificate" will be available for downloading after the finals.

Rating

The formula for calculating the MarathonMan-Points is the following:

"the day’s best time” x maximum points: personal time".

The time of the winner of the day (in seconds) equals the maximum points of each distance. The follow up bikers receive the proportional points according to the winner’s time.

For example:
time of the winner = 3:28:47 = 12.527 seconds = 10.000 points
time of a MME-participant = 4:01:23 = 14.483 seconds = 8.649 points

At the final the three best results are going to be added. Those who bike all five races can therefore delete two results. Every participant can choose any course, however on the long distances one receives more points.
