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.
- Submitting race results and miles monthly is a requirement of eligibility. Race results submitted after the deadline will not be reported in future newsletters.

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. Those joining the club mid-year are encouraged to wait until the next “point year” to begin the program.
