New For 2017
Age Group Awards
1st – 3rd place men and women in each age group will receive an award. These will be the three individuals in each age group with lowest Series Scores.
Series Age Groups:
Males 0-12, 13-19, 20-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50-59, 60-69, 70+
Females 0-12, 13-19, 20-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50-59, 60-69, 70+
A participant’s ‘Series Age Group’ will be based on their age as of 12/31/2017. This will be the age used for ‘Series’ awards and ranking.
A participant’s ‘Event Age’ will be determined by the rules of each individual event. Events may use the ‘Series Age’ or the athlete’s age on the day of the Event for individual Event Awards. This will be left to the discretion of the race directors and will not impact your Series Score or Ranking.
