The Course

Points Series

The more races you participate in, the better your chances to become the Run the District Series Champion!

All registrants will collect points from every race they enter, regardless of distance (excluding Fun Runs). At the end of the season, awards will be presented to the highest accumulated points in both Female and Male classes, and will be recognized as the Run the District Champion presented by New Balance London & Investors Group.

Join us after the the M&T Classic Championship for the Championship Awards Ceremony.

Males athletes will have 4 race events to gain points, while Female athletes will have 5 race events. Prizes include: New Balance London Gift Certificates,Western Fair District VIP Passes (aka free tickets to all of our owned and operated shows)!

 

Here’s How Points Are Awarded:

Points are awarded to the top 20 athletes in each age category of each race. 1st place will receive 2000 points, 2nd place will receive 1900 points and so on to 20th place receiving 100 points, with the remaining participants receiving 50 points. Awards will be given out to the Overall Male and Female Champion and top 3 in each Age Category based on the most points scored over the series. Double points are awarded to finishers of the M&T Classic Championship race. In the event of a tie, the higher position at The Classic Championship only will determine the outcome.

Please note: It is the athletes’ responsibility to register under the same name for each event and to check that their point standings are accurate before the next scheduled race. This will help to ensure accuracy at the final race of the series.
