How to calculate your Perathlon scores for the 8 distance events.
The 30 and 60 minute events are lower on the page.

1) Select the record 2k time from your ranking division.
women lightweight = 414.7 (135 pounds or less) – updated feb04/10
women open division = 388.4
men lightweight = 358.5 (165 pounds or less)
men open division = 336.6

Age 19 through 35 = 1.0
36 .9955 | 37 .9911 | 38 .9869 | 39 .9828 | 40 .9788 | 41 .9750
42 .9712 | 43 .9676 | 44 .9640 | 45 .9606 | 46 .9572 | 47 .9539
48 .9507 | 49 .9476 | 50 .9445 | 51 .9415 | 52 .9365 | 53 .9315
54 .9267 | 55 .9220 | 56 .9173 | 57 .9228 | 58 .9084 | 59 .9041
60 .8999 | 61 .8933 | 62 .8867 | 63 .8804 | 64 .8742 | 65 .8681
66 .8621 | 67 .8563 | 68 .8505 | 69 .8449 | 70 .8394 | 71 .8340
72 .8287 | 73 .8235 | 74 .8184 | 75 .8134 | 76 .8073 | 77 .8013
78 .7954 | 69 .7897 | 80 .7840 | 81 .7674 | 82 .7514 | 83 .7359
84 .7209 | 85 .7064 | 86 .6923 | 87 .6786 | 88 .6654 | 89 .6526
90 .6402 | 91 .6267 | 92 .6136 | 93 .6010 | 94 .5886 | 95 .5767

3) Select the event factor for the distance you are scoring.
500 = .2199 | 1k = .4825 | 2k = 1.0 | 5k = 2.621
6k = 3.174 | 10k = 5.475 | hm = 12.15 | fm = 25.61

4) Calculate the total seconds for the event you are scoring.

How to calculate your scores for the distance events.
a) use the formula:
(division / age adjustment) x (event factor / time)
b) an example for men’s lightweight age 62
(362.2 / .8867) x (.2199 / 102.8 ) = .8738 = 874 points

How to calculate your score for the 30 minute event.

a) multiply your meters by .537
b) divide by 1000 and get the result
Example: 7385 x .537 / 1000 = 3.966
c) use the same formula as for the distance events
(division / age factor) x (result / 1800)
(362.2 / .8867) x (result / 1800) = 900 points

How to calculate your score for the 60 minute event.

a) multiply your meters by .561
b) divide by 1000 and get the result
Example: 14139 x .561 / 1000 = 7.932
c) use the same formula as for the distance events
(division / age factor) x (result / 3600)
(362.2 / .8867) x (result / 3600) = 900 points

Predict the time needed for a certain number of points

[(362.2 / .8867)(.2199)] / .900 = 1:39.8 would be 900 points.

These are some of my times, updated except for 30/60′ events. The Perathlon compares Concept2 rowing times for the 10 ranking events, regardless of age, weight class or gender. The latest Perathlon scores are based on exact comparative high placings in the 2008 rankings, and related to current world records for the 2k. The Perathlon has been calculated on a TI-BA2 calculator using learning curve power regression analysis.
