30 women and 30 men will face off across six events for a $250,000, equally-split prize purse. The $250,000 prize purse will pay out ten-deep based on overall series results, which are determined by a points-based ranking system. First place will earn $25,000, second place will earn $20,000, third place will receive $16,000, and so forth.
