All registrants will collect points at 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 New Balance Run the District Champions.
Run the District Series Champions awards will be awarded following the M&T Classic at our post-race/series banquet November 6, 2016.

Here’s How Points Are Awarded:
Points will be awarded to the top 20 athletes in each age category in 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 will be awarded to finishers of The Classic Championship event. In the event of a tie, the higher position at The Classic Championship only will determine the outcome.
