# swimming to running coversion (Read 1526 times)

We have a competition among friends in our neighborhood for logging the most miles. There are bonus points for various things, but for the most part, the scoring system is 1 mile equals one point. Some members like to do other things (swim, bike, play soccer). Since it is a RUNNING competition, we will have points favor running, but would still like to recognize other activities in the scoring system to some extent. Does anyone have an idea of what would be considered a reasonable conversion factor between swimming and running?

Hmmm... well, to make it simple: You are awarding one point for one mile. If it takes you 9:00 minutes to run a mile, why not do something like: 1 point for every 15 minutes swimming? (because you said the points are favoring running ...). I would think a time conversion is easier than a distance converstion, because some people swim in metered pools, some in yard pools, some in longcourse, some in short course, etc. Good luck and sounds like a cool competition!
