Awards

Series standings and awards are tabulated based on your finishing position in each event and are computed by dividing a runner's time into the time of the first-place finisher and multiplying by 1,000.  For each event, the points earned are added up to determine the final standings.  

 

All participants, regardless if they officially sign up for the entire series, will be awarded series points.  Of course, the more events you compete in, the better your standings will be.
