The 12-week “Point Series” commences on Thursday, June 29 and runs through Thursday, Sept. 14. To qualify, runners must attend a minimum of 10 races (missing only two throughout the series).
The First Place Finisher in each weekly race receives 1,000 Points. The remaining finishers receive points based on this formula:
• Each competitor’s time is divided into the First Place Finishers time, and then that time is multiplied by 1000.|
• All weekly points are cumulative for 12 weeks, and the competitors with the highest amount of points after 12 weeks will determine our Awards Winners.
48 trophies will be awarded, including those for Top 3 overall Male and Female finishers as well as Top 3 Male and Top 3 Female Age Division finishers (1–16, 17–29, 30–39, 40–49, 50–59, 60–69, 70+).
