EPICBLUE CHAMPIONSHIP SERIES (applies for LONG ENDURANCE only)



EPICBLUE establishes an overall ranking between the three stages (Finale Ligure, Italy; Izmir, Turkey; and Raja Ampat, Indonesia), but ONLY for the LONG ENDURANCE course. This creates a championship series each year and designates, at the end of the three stages, the EPICBLUE CHAMPIONS in each category: Men, Women, and Mixed.



The 2020 EPICBLUE SwimRun Finale Ligure will be the official launch of the series, and will commence with the SwimPaddleRun in Raja Ampat and then finish with the SwimRun, Izmir Turkey in 2021.

Calculation of Ranking Points – EPICBLUE Championship Series
The number of points is calculated according to the LONG ENDURANCE TEAM results at each Event. The SHORT EXPERIENCE SOLO and TEAM Events allow for the athletes to test the SWIMRUN/SWIMPADDLERUN format and to aspire to the LONG ENDURANCE in the future.



CAUTION: a change in TEAM members means a new TEAM is created and no accumulated points will carry over. Should however, a TEAM member be unavailable to compete an appeal may be made to the Race Organisation for a replacement to be made.



The basic points, before applying the coefficient according to the race format, are as follows:

1st 500 pts
2nd 475 pts
3th 455 pts

4th 440 pts
5th 425 pts


100th 2 pts



VIEW COMPLETE TABLE OF POINTS



All LONG ENDURANCE TEAMS that finish in the first 100 overall, score points. A TEAM scores the number of points according to their overall ranking regardless of their category.  That is, for example, a Mixed TEAM that ranks 7th in the overall LONG ENDURANCE standings but who are first in the Mixed TEAM category, would score the points of 7th not 1st.
