Age/Sex Based Categories in 5 year increments (your racing age = your age on December 31st, 2019)
LONG OR SHORT COURSE
At every race two different races occur. Short Course Race = 3-5 miles and a Long Course Race = 7-9 miles
POINT SYSTEM EXPLAINED (You must participate in at least 6 Races to be considered for end of season awards. Participation is running in at least 6 races or running in at least 5 races and volunteering (5-close) at least once. Note if you run in all 12 races all your points will count)
End of Season Awards will be given to the top 3 series point leaders in each age category at the end of the season as well as Overall Leaders in both the Short and Long Course. You must participate in at least 6 Wednesday Evening races to be considered for end of season awards. This creates the possibility of someone who has enough points to place in the top 3 in their category but does not qualify for end of season awards due to not having raced the minimum amount of races. In that case, the next qualifying participant on the points ladder will be considered for that award. Racers who place top 3 in an Overall Category (Long or Short) will not be considered for age category awards as they will be receiving awards for the respective Overall Category (Long or Short). This system favors the consistent racer.
Note: Points are accrued separately for the Short and Long Course. So if you run some Short Course Races and some Long Course Races, you will have separate points for each. The points from your Short Course and Long Course races are not additive. So if you're interested in accruing the most points, race consistently in the same course (Short or Long). That being said you can race a combination of both Long and Short Course races to reach the 6 race threshold in order to be considered for awards ie. you just have to participate as explained above 6 times to be considered for awards.
Registration for individual races is online (see particular race web page). It is also available day of race at the race venue. If you register online, you will have a choice of receiving either a mug, coaster, or hydration flask. If you register at the venue you will not receive one. So register online!
