Individual medals for each of senior/novice and masters categories for men/ women but all categories combined for team prize
There won’t be separate races for novice/senior/master, so all the women for example will run together, and declare their category before the start.
Medals awarded to the top 3 in each category at the finish.
Overall team prize also, 4 athletes to score, so team could for example be 2 senior, 1 novice and 1 masters, or 4 novices.
and it would be possible to win more than 1 team prize if enough athletes from one club team took part.
