Join us for the 4th Annual Stafford Race Series! We have expanded the Long Course Series to 5 races in 2021 and the Kids Short Course Series will consist of 3 races. By registering for the bundle you'll receive $5 off of each of the 5 long course races and $2 off of each of the short course (kids) races - bundle & save.
FULL DISCLOSURE: We have not secured a title sponsor for the 2021 series. 2020 was a rough year and we are working on funding the 2021 series. IF we are able to secure a sponsor, we will definitely provide series finishers gifts and medals. If we do not have a series sponsor, we will not be able to provide series awards in 2021. However, we wanted to keep the series alive because we love it, so we're moving forward and are still offering the discounts on race bundles.
Please note: All races have an in-person and virtual option with the exception of the Stafford Hospital Cabin Fever races. Cabin Fever will be virtual only. The hospital staff have gone the extra mile for the community, so it's time for us to put in some virtual miles and support them!
The Long Course option is available for ages 10 & Older. It consists of the 7K, Virtual 5K, 10K, 5K and 3 Mile races. Age is determined by your age on April 9, 2021. This ensures that you are 10 years or older for ALL of the races.
The Short Course option is available for ages 12 & Under. It consists of one 1/2 mile virtual race and two one mile races. Age is determined by your age on Dec. 11, 2021. This ensures that you are 12 years or younger for ALL of the races.
In order to better track who is running the Stafford Race Series this year we are requiring all participants to register their intent to be part of the series. Don't worry, this step is FREE! There are 2 ways to do this.
There are several deadlines for this registration.
April 17, 2021: If you wish to be considered for the overall awards, you must complete the Series Registration step before the Cabin Fever 5K and 1/2 Mile.
October 17, 2021: If you want to get the finisher swag you need to complete the Series Registration step by this date. This allows us time to order the appropriate amount of gear. ***See full disclosure note above. Series finisher swag is not guaranteed unless we secure a series sponsor.***

We are transitioning to a points based leaderboard this year. The scoring system will be as follows:
The first place finisher in the race will receive 1000 points. Each subsequent place will have their points reduced by 5. For example:
1st Place = 1000 points.
2nd Place = 995 points
3rd Place = 990 points
and so on......
Each runner is guaranteed a minimum of 250 points for finishing the race.
The points awarded to each person are based on your overall place in the race based on gender. So the first place female and the first place male will both receive 1000 points. Separate leaderboards will be kept for Male and Female.
