Competition Rules:

  • Runners must complete at least 3 of the designated races.
  • Runners must be SFTC members to be part of the competition.
  • Runners must be SFTC members on race day for a particular race to count towards their 2010 Trail Series score.
  • Runners must sign up by sending an email to the Trail Series Coordinator at slnemeth@mindspring.com.
  • Runners must earn at least 5 SFTC Volunteer Points, 4 of which must be earned through volunteer acts at SFTC-owned or hired races.

Scoring:

Each of the Trail Series races will be scored as follows (similar to cross-country type scoring):

(a) Each Trail Series runner will be assigned points for each race corresponding to their position in the race relative to other Trail Series runners. For example, if a runner places 5th overall in the race but is the first SFTC member to finish, then that runner receives 1 point. If another Trail Series runner finishes 8th overall and is the second SFTC member to finish, then that runner receives 2 points.

(b) A runner's Trail Series score will be the sum of their points for their top three races.

(c) The runner with the lowest score wins.

Awards:

Awards will be given at the SFTC annual banquet as follows:

(i) Top 3, male and female

(ii) Top masters (40 - 49), male and female

(iii) Top grandmasters (50 and over), male and female

(iv) The overall male and female winners shall receive $50 gift certificates to Foot Rx JC (courtesy of Foot Rx JC).
