Racing Series

Overview

The BRC racing series was created to give members a fun and friendly way to compete with one another in a points-earning event. Each year, a series of local 5K, 5 Mile, and 10K races are hand-picked to be part of the series. As races are held throughout the year, runners who elect to participate in the series will score points based on their overall finishing place overall or in their age groups. Regardless of finishing position, each participant will receive points just for finishing. The better the finishing position, the more points that are awarded. At the end of the year, points are accumulated and the person with the highest points wins the competition within the designated age group. Racing series winners are announced at the BRC Annual Awards Banquet traditionally held in first quarter.

Rules

  • Only BRC members in good standing will be awarded points. You must be an active BRC member on race day to score points. You may join the series at any point throughout the year but you will only earn points for races completed after enrollment.
  • Points are accumulated throughout the entire race series.
  • You may enter as many of the races as you like; however, you must run at least three, and only your best five will be included in your final score.
  • You will remain in whichever age group you belong to at the beginning of the year for the entirety of the racing series competition, even if you move to a higher age group during the year.  However, you will be scored in whichever age group you belong to on race day.
  • No tie breakers. If there is a tie in the final standings, both winners will receive an award.
  • For adults, the racing series includes five-year age groups. Overall, masters 40+, grand masters 50+, senior grand masters 60+, and veteran grand masters 70+ will be pulled from the age groups and awarded separately.
  • Points at individual races for overall, masters 40+, grand masters 50+, senior grand masters 60+, and veteran grand masters 70+ can only be earned if you win that category in the race.  The age group points will be based on placing amongst BRC members only.
  • Children are eligible and will be placed in the following age groups: 9 and under, 10-12, 13-15, 16-19.
  • Runners under 20 years old cannot win the Overall Award.

Awards will be announced at the Annual Awards Banquet in first quarter each year.  If you have won an award but do not attend the annual meeting, please contact a board member to arrange pick up of your award.  Awards will be recycled if not picked up within 6 months of the annual meeting.
