So here's my crack at coming up with a slightly more objective scoring system, whilst also providing a bit of detail and "colour" about the event.
No doubt I'll still churn out my rambling tome's too, but hopefully you might find this helpful or at least of interest.
I've set it up to give a score between 100 and 20, and it's weighted so if for example a race doesn't give out a T-shirt, then that doesn't count adversely and it still gets a score out of 100, clever stuff Eh.
I'll do some work on the formatting as I now realise you may need a magnifying glass to read the detail, but I thought I'd better post a score for my last race, before I run this weekend's Tiree Ultra.
The Helsinki City Marathon earned a score of 80 on the Ainslie-ometer.
