Rules and Requirements
To qualify for the Champion’s Race a runner must either be the Top Overall or Masters Winner or finish in the Top 5 in their age group at any one of the qualifying races. Athletes that qualify will be eligible to register for the Champion’s Race.
Once qualified, it is the responsibility of the athlete to register for the Championship Race. All athletes must be registered in the Champion’s Division before September 30th. The Champion’s division will close at midnight on September 30th. Under no circumstance will an athlete be allowed to register for the Champion’s race after September 30th.
Eligibility is based on the official age group awards of the individual qualifying races. No adjustments will be made for races with specialty divisions that exclude participants from inclusion in the age group awards. (i.e.: Clydesdale, Athena, Teams, etc.)
The minimum age group for the Champions Race is 14 and Under. Finishers in youth categories at qualifying races with age groups younger than 14 and Under participants will be scored as a 14 and Under for series qualifying purposes.
Runners that qualify in a particular age group, but then “age up” into an older age group during the year will participate in their current age group as of Oct. 26, 2013 for the Championship race.
