Each race at EveryChallenge can either be for individuals or for teams. With team results all participants in the same team work together in achieving the race goal. There are a few options available to fine-tune the behavior of team races which are described in this article.
Team results can be enabled for all challenge and race types.
Before you start: by the nature of how team results work they are more complex than individual races so our general advise is to first host at least one individual event/challenge before adding teams into the mix.
You can enable team results in the event management screens when you add/edit a race. Once this option is enabled a few options appear:
- Team/Relay: this option needs to be enabled first to show the other options
- Aggregated Results: this allows you to set how many team member results are taken into account to calculate the team score. Leave empty to include all team members. If a team doesn’t have enough members with a valid result the team score will be undefined.
- For Best Result and Track challenge types the average of the X best results is taken as team score.
- For Total distance/elevation/calories/stairs challenge types the sum of the X best results is taken as team score.
- Gender sub-teams: this allows you to enable gender based sub teams. These sub-teams respect the aggregated results setting.
- No gender results (default): all team members will count towards the team score
- Men+Women results: next to the default team score there are sub-teams with only the men and women counting towards the sub-team scores. E.g. best 5 men and best 5 women results.
- Men+Women+Mix: same as before, but requires at least one participant of each gender into the sub-teams.
Team data (which participant goes in which team) is based on the registration file. The file should contain a column with the name ‘Team’ or ‘Group’. Each team should have a unique name.
When gender sub-teams are configured you should ensure to also import genders for all participants.
