Series Medal

You must register and complete all 6 events in the Conbrio Northland Half Marathon Series to be eligible for the series medal.

Virtual option (in the case you can't make the event but still want to be eligible for the series medal)

If you have registered for any of the events in the series you have the option to do the event virtually if you cannot attend. Obviously if you don't complete your run/walk then you will not be eligible for the series medal. You will need to provide evidence of your activity and submit it to sportnorthevents@gmail.com to prove you did your run/walk. Your time will not count towards the Conbrio Northland Half Marathon Series Leaderboard.

Series Leaderboard

  • The Conbrio Northland Half Marathon Leader board will capture every half marathon finisher part of the series. If the event did not go ahead due to cancellation then you must participate in the virtual event to be eligible for the series medal. ​

  • The calculation method for points for the series is based on the same method that our friends at Running Events in Auckland use. We believe this method will result in fairer results and help to smooth out the peaks and troughs encountered due to differing participation levels at each event.​

  • Points will be awarded based on where you finished relative to the winner in your gender for those registered in the half marathon. The first-placed male and female athletes in each category receive 100 points, and then subsequent finishers are awarded points as a percentage of the winner’s time. That means that no matter how long you take to finish, you will always earn some points.​

  • We will be offering DOUBLE POINTS for the final event of the series. That means the overall winners at the Kerikeri Half Marathon will receive 200 points instead of 100 … and so on…. So, make sure you save your best until last!

  • Although you do not need to complete all events to achieve an overall placing, it will obviously be difficult to win unless you do.

 

Recognition: The first placed male & female in the Conbrio Northland Half Marathon Series event will receive a trophy and free entry into next years Sport Northland Half Marathon Series. 

Can I use my event credit/s towards the series?

Yes. In 2021 we cancelled a few events and offered a credit/transfer to another event. If you wish to credit these events towards the Northland Half Marathon Series, please email sportnorthevents@gmail.com.

Paid in full Refunds (if you paid for the series pass in full and you meet the criteria. See ‘Applying for a refund’ above) 

 

  • If you withdraw at any stage throughout the series, you will get a partial refund based on the average cost of 6 events (6 events, divided by what you paid, e.g., $320.00 = $53 per event). Depending on the number of events you have left, e.g., you have three events left, we then multiply those three events by $53 and refund 75%.  

  • Amount paid divided by the number of events in the series equals the average cost per event. Number of events left to complete multiplied by the average price per event. The total average cost of events remaining multiplied by 75%. 

  • 320\6 = 53 || 3 events left to complete || 53x3=159x75% 

 

Paid by instalments Refunds (if you paid for the series pass using instalments and you meet the criteria. See ‘Applying for a refund’ above) 

 

  • If you withdraw at any stage throughout the series, you will get a partial refund based on how many instalments you have made (4 payments of $80 each for SEB) and how many events you have completed. 

  • There are 6 events in the series and at the SEB price ($320) it works out on average to be approx. $53 per event e.g., $320.00/6 = $53. 

  • Now we look at the number of instalments paid (e.g., 1 payment has been made of $80) minus the number of events completed (in this case, 1 event has been completed) will be deducted and you will be given 75% of the remaining total. 

  • e.g., 1st instalment made of $80.00 minus one event, $53 multiplied by 75%. 

  • $80 – $53 = $27 x75%
