BattleFrog Pays Out Their Points Season

battlefrog-payouts

BattleFrog Series, which cancelled all of it’s 2016/17 races on August 23rd has begun to issue payouts for it’s 2016 Points Series. Surprisingly, the biggest names from the former BattleFrog Pro Team, did not finish as high as some might have guessed. Ryan Atkins finished 2nd on the men’s side, with fellow team member Marco Bedard finishing 14th. Ryan and Marco were both given “race-directing” roles this year, which may explain this anomaly. On the women’s side, Pro Team members Lindsay Webster and Sarah Watson Mitchell Watson did take 1 and 2. However, Corinna Coffin took 5th, and Claude Godbout took a distant 18th place.

The point series was calculated by athlete placement at the BattleFrog Elite Heats. 3000 for 1st place, 2950 for 2nd, 2900 for 3rd and so on through 49th place. 50th-250th place earned 250 points, and you were given 100 points for a DNF. This system was in place for 24 “regular season” races, there were 2 additional “Regional Championships” that had a slightly higher weighted point system. Those races took place in Charlotte and the late Summer SoCal race. There were 2 more scheduled that never took place. BattleFrog payed out the top 30 based on those points in the following categories: Elite Men, Elite Women, Elite Masters Men (40+) and Elite Masters Women (40+).

The biggest takeaway, however, is it could easily be said that this is not something BattleFrog “had to do’. Refunding races is expected, but paying out a point series for a championship that essentially doesn’t exist is something that few expected. BattleFrog intends to make good on $139,070 in these “end of series” payouts, even though the series ended prematurely. Some athletes have begun posting they have received these checks.

Here is a complete list of the 2016 abbreviated season points and payouts. Congrats to all the recipients.
