Points run through calendar year - January 1 to December 31. The Racing Points Program is optional.
Participants are asked to follow certain guidelines.
You must be a club member to accumulate points and points start when you become an active member. To be eligible for awards, information must be submitted each month.
Please submit your results by the 7th of each month for the previous month's results. Race results should include race name, date, location, time, and award or placing. Individuals are responsible for submitting results of all races.
Submitting race results and miles monthly is a requirement of eligibility. Race results submitted after the deadline will not be reported.
Send miles to: Carol Cathey: firstname.lastname@example.org
Send race results to: Donna Graham: email@example.com or mail to: 80 Graham Road, Lowell, OH 45744
For overall, points are given according to the awards at each race. For example, a race may award five overall places. If a race gives three overall awards, finisher number four would earn 5 points for first place in his or her age group (not 7 points for fourth overall). For the age group awards, points are awarded according to how the race is set up. If a race gives two or three age group places, points are given accordingly. If a race gives more than five places, the lower place receives 1 point.
All participants receive 1 point for each race-mile run or walked, in addition to any overall or age group points earned. Walkers participating in a road race, even though there is not a category for walkers, receive points for the race distance. Our computer does not figure tenths, so a 5K or 10K is rounded to 3 miles or 6 miles.
Some members combine running and walking in their training. These miles must be reported separately. Mileage accumulated on a treadmill can be included in your total mileage.
Those joining the club mid-year are encouraged to wait until the next “point year” to begin the program.
