Points (actual scores) accumulated from each leg will be used as the basis for qualifying for the Grand Finals, where the top 10 in each section will be given free entry and the top 25 overall finishers* in each section will be given priority in participation.
The organizers reserve discretion in modifying the number of qualifiers.
Participants are encouraged to pre-register with the organizers to be assured of a place as space is limited and so only 80 places are guaranteed for each leg.
