How It Works:

If you compete in 4 races you will be in the running for the Series awards.  At the end of 7 races, we will take your 4 best results and add up the points.  Awards will be given out for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd for the entire series, as well as, for each age group winner, male and female for each division.  Special recognition will be given to participants who run ALL 7 races!

The Point System

Categories are divided into males and females and age groups. The first 8 finishers qualify for points as follows:

  1. 50 points
  2. 40
  3. 35
  4. 30
  5. 25
  6. 20
  7. 15
  8. 10

We have 7 races listed and the 4 best results of every participant count for the final result. Your age will be based on the date Dec 31, 2017. You will race in this age group for the entire year.

Age groups are Male and Female: 14 and under: 15-19; every 5 years to 74; and over 75.
