2017 Points Series Rules

*You must be a member of Eden Athletics to earn points in the race series.*

You must complete six Series races to be eligible for an award. Membership forms are available at www.edenathletics.com.

The age category of each runner is determined by their age at the first Series race they enter during the calendar year. Membership applications can be submitted within one week (7 days) of running a race in the series to have that race count towards point series totals.

The top ten runners in each age group receive points for each Series race they complete. (1st = 10 points, 2nd = 9 points, etc.). If you participate in a race but do not earn points (lower than 10th place in your age group) this race will count towards the minimum of 6 races needed to be eligible for an award.

Awards will be based on each runner’s total points from their six best Series performances (or more in the event of a tie). Tiebreakers are determined by considering numbers of races in which each person in the tie has points (for example; if the top two are tied at 6 races but both runners ran 8 races the points will be calculated for the top 6, then top 7 if there si stilll a tie, then top 8 if there is still a tie, etc.).  The Awards will be presented to the top three runners (male and female) in the following age groups: 10 and under, 11-19, 20-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50-59, 60-69, 70 and over.

Awards will also be presented to the male and female with the highest Age Group point totals in the Point Series. These two runners will not be eligible for an age group award.
