Lynchburg Road Runners, Lynchburg, VA
The 2013 Lynchburg Road Runners Race Series celebrates its 12th year. Races are scheduled March thru August and are a variety of distances.
Participants score points in two categories; their age group and overall male or female. The goal of the race series is to help motivate individuals to stay healthy and stay running.
WHO IS ELIGIBLE?
You DO NOT have to be a member of the Lynchburg Road Runners (LRRC) to participate. However, registration discounts are given to LRRC members. RUNNERS QUALIFY FOR SERIES AWARDS & RANKING BY PARTICIPATING IN NO LESS THAN 4 RACES BY Aug. 1ST. (Race Directors who direct an event before the August 1st deadline are eligible having completed 3 series races.) The more race series races you complete, the more points you can accumulate.
HOW ARE POINTS AWARDED?
Points are awarded for each Overall placing and each Age Group placing as follows. 1st (50pts.), 2nd (45pts.), 3rd (40pts.), 4th (35pts.), 5th (30pts.), 6th (25pts.), 7th (20pts.), 8th (15pt.), 9th (10pts.), 10th (5pts.). Points are awarded to a place regardless of whether or not a runner has qualified for the series. Placing beyond 10th receives 1 point.
Double points will be awarded to those that complete the Lynchburg Half Marathon.
DO I NEED TO RUN THE HALF MARATHON?
The Half Marathon distance is not for everyone. Points will be awarded for both the Half Marathon and 5k held in August. Runners concerned about accumulating the most points should review their place standing for each of the Race Series events they have completed and choose wisely the event that they feel will provide the most points.
WHO GETS AN AWARD?
Awards are given to the top 3 overall male / female and top Masters (40 yrs. old and up). Awards are given to the top 3 male/female in each age group. A special award will be presented to those that complete all 8 races. A presentation is made at the November meeting of the Lynchburg Road Runners. Award recipients who cannot attend the awards presentation have until December 31, 2013 to pick up their awards.
