POINTS

To ensure cyclists and runners from all walks of life have a fair chance of becoming the King or Queen of Paarl Mountain, we apply the formula below to calculate a weighted time.

The Formula

We take into account your effort through our HR Factor, your height and weight through our BMI Factor (this number is usually unkind to stocky people, but is to your advantage here ;)) and your actual time.

In short, actual time (in seconds) X BMI Factor X HR Factor = Weighted Time.
