It a motivational thing. Up to you to set targets which are challenging but achieveable.
January you set the number of runs (any distance over 1 mile) you aim to do per week. If you do more it doesn't matter.
February - set your longest run distance, can't remember of the top of my head whether it's each week or longest for the month.
March - time trial; you set target time for a given distance. The closer you get to your target, the more points you get.
Do it solo for a personal challenge or sigh up with a team to contribute towards team results. Don't think there's a Pirate team this year - unless someone's set one up in the last day or so but there is a 'fabulous forumites' team as well as numerous club/parkrun/miscellaneous teams.
