Challenge or Bundle Event Scoring refers to a scoring method in which participants compete in several events within a single race, all under the same bib number, on the same day or over a weekend. The objective is to generate individual results for each distinct event, as well as a cumulative result that combines the times from all the individual races.

For example, you may have a 5k and a 10k, with an option to run both, with the need to produce 5k results, 10k results, and 5k + 10k results for those registered in the bundle.

We have many timers who use the RunSignup Super/Sub Event settings to accomplish this kind of scoring scenario. You'd want to create three events at RSU, then go to Race > Registration > Event Grouping, and mark the 5k and 10k as sub-events of the bundle. Then when people register for the bundle, they will appear in the bundle, the 5k, and the 10k. Because it is one registration being entered into multiple events, not separate registrations in each event, you need to be OK with having participants in the bundle wearing the same bib for the 5k and 10k. Usually, this is not a problem.

This is an example of a similar race, where they had a 5k, 10k, and a bundle called the Espresso Challenge, where participants are ranked based on their combined time from the 5k and 10k.

In RaceDay Scoring you would set up a scored event for each event. Because the registrations in the bundle will automatically appear in the sub events, you don't have to mark both boxes when setting this up.

We suggest setting up separate timing locations for each event that are using the same stream, then adding additional filters to each location to isolate the reads for each race to a specific timeframe. This way you can make sure that you don't have overlap between races.

For the bundle event, you would need to set up a rest segment that represents the time spent between the 5k and 10k. When you set up a segment like this, it will remove the time spent in this segment from the total time of this event. So the entire race should go from the start occurrence of the 5k to the finish occurrence of the 10k. You can also include 5k and 10k segments here if you like, or you could leave them out if you prefer to only show the total times in your report. 

The critical thing will be that you need to collect start times for the second race so that you can configure the segments properly. Since there's only one start time for the double event, you can't say that the 5k segment starts at the gun time for the 5k event, and the 5 mile segment starts at the gun time for the 5 mile event, because the doublescored event only knows about it's own single gun start time.

If you are not collecting start times for the second event, you can create a spreadsheet of made up times for all participants and import them into Timing Locations > Actions > Import.
