What is this event all about?
The BOINC Pentathlon is a two week long BOINC team competition. Five different projects will be crunched over the two week period.
The BOINC Pentathlon consists of 5 disciplines:
- Obstacle Run (14 days, with bonus credits on 3 one-day obstacles)
- Sprint (3 days)
- City Run (5 days)
- Cross Country (5 days)
- Javelin (5x 1 day, only each team's third best daily score counts)
The fun and challenging aspect of the Pentathlon is resource management. The 5 "disciplines" are run over a 14 day period, so each "discipline" overlaps another discipline. Figuring out what to run, and when to run it, is what makes the Pentathlon a unique and challenging BOINC points race.
Announcements and start times will vary for each of the disciplines. This makes managing what projects are running, and when to start and stop running the projects, on of the fun and challenging aspects of the Pentathlon.
