Season 7 of the COVID-CUP will include a variety of race distances. The season will begin Monday March 1 and run through Sunday March 29. Final team selections will occur the day before the season begins (Sunday, February 28). During the season, each runner will be required to complete the specified race distance and submit verification of their time. The week begins each Monday and "race" results must be submitted by 8pm PT on the following Sunday. Team results will then be tallied and averaged, with handicapping, time bonuses, and gender-equaling being applied each week to help ensure a competitive season. At the end of season, the team with the lowest average time will be declared the winner.
