Description

This is Race #2 in the 18th annual running of the RRRC Cul-de-sac 5K Series. Join us to race or walk the rolling hills through the Wyndham community in western Henrico County. There will be a race series competition for runners who register for all 3 races AND who finish all 3 races. 

The three races of the RRRC Cul-de-sac 5K Series are on Monday nights @ 7:00 PM - July 1, July 8 & July 15

Choose the Cul-de-sac 3-Race (or 2-Race) Package to sign up for all three 5Ks and test yourself on the same fast course three times. You'll save $1.00 per race off the listed price on each race (does not apply to youth pricing) and only pay one processing fee. You can use the package option to sign up for just two races, but you will not be eligible for the Series Competition.

Bottom line: Use the Package to sign up for all 3 races -- a RRRC member pays $21.00 and a non-member pays $39.00, plus the processing fee on one transaction. The price increases on June 15.

Series Competition

REVISED

The series competition for this year’s Cul-de-sac 5K Series is designed to encourage competitive running and racing for place among runners in 5-year age groups over this 3-race series. 

There are 32 competitive categories based on age and gender. The 5-year age groups are: 8-9, through 80+. Age group placement is based on the runner’s age on July 1, 2019.

For each 5K race, points will be awarded to all finishers in each age group. The top 9 finishers in each age group will receive points as follows: 

  • 1st - 10; 2nd - 9; 3rd - 8; 4th - 7; 5th - 6; 6th - 5; 7th - 4; 8th - 3; 9th - 2
  • All other finishers in each age group receive one participation point.

Runners must run and finish all three 5K races to be eligible for awards based on the series competition points. The three (3) runners with the highest point totals in each 10-year age group will receive awards at the closing awards ceremony on July 15. Any point ties for 1st, 2nd or 3rd place within each age group will be resolved by assigning higher standing to the runner with the fastest time in the Cul-de-sac 5K #3 on July 15.

The top 3 runners in each age group will receive gift certificates from Lucky Road Run Shop: 1st - $30; 2nd - $20; and 3rd - $10. There will also be prizes for the top 3 male and top 3 female runners overall and the top male and top female masters runner (no double dipping).
